As the title states: How do they get my work e-mail?
They being random companies, organizations, societies, and headhunters. I don't use my work e-mail for really anything but internal communication. I am so low on the totem pole that I'm not giving out business cards much at all. But somehow, random people e-mail me about anything and everything, mostly stuff I have nothing to do with (IT, marketing, sales, supply chain)!
Anyone have any ideas how my work e-mail is found?
Then the etiquette question - what do I say?
When it comes to people offering IT services, or other programs that are SO far outside my work scope I just say something like "I am not the person to talk to about this, please contact our corporate _____" and if I have contact info for that group I'll provide. Is there anything else I should say? Can I ask how they got my e-mail?
Headhunters are the worst...I just don't get how and why they think it is at all appropriate to contact someone about a job offer at their current job! Anyone a headhunter or recruiter want to offer some insite?
