I do not know this person or anything about him.  This email
has a strong smell of mass mailing rather than a legitimate 
inquiry, but if you are interested please contact him and let
us know how it goes.

Subject: Local Perl Job Fairs?

I obtained your email address from www.perl.org as the coordinator of a 
local Perl Mongers group.

I'm a Perl programming professional that does contracting work on the 
side. During a recent meeting with a large employer in Seattle, it was 
explained to me that they were looking for a large number of highly 
qualified Perl programmers during the next 12 months. They are looking 
for full time employees willing to move to Seattle.

This company is a major concern that offers stability, good pay, 
benefits and perks. They are nearly 100% mod_perl/Mason. They prefer 
full time employees onsite for many reasons, and have little interest 
in contractors of any sort, particular offsite contractors. Any Perl 
Monger looking for a job and willing to move to Seattle would likely 
jump at the opportunity to work for this company.

It occurred to me that rather than acting as contractor, or employee, I 
might benefit more by recruiting Perl programmers for them. With the 
current job market and relative lack of Perl jobs (compared to Java and 
Microsoft technologies, bleh) the timing seems ideal.

That's why I'm writing you. Your group may provide access to a large 
and concentrated group of talented Perl programmers, some of which 
might be looking for a new opportunity. I'd like to access your members 
to gauge their interest. If enough qualified people are interested, 
then I could schedule to attend a meeting and meet the potential 
candidates in person.

Meeting the people in person is very important. While this company is 
absolutely looking for the top Perl talent they are also looking for 
communications skills, social skills, situational awareness and 
business saavy in addition. I feel that these additional attributes are 
best judged in person.

Would this be of interest to you and your group members? If so, how can 
we arrange to advertise this opportunity and gauge interest?

Thanks for your time. I'm eagerly awaiting your response.
