I received an email like this yesterday:
Dear Low Lay Hiang,
I have come across your resume and portfolios on coroflot website. I am interested to see if you will be interested in a job opening in Beijing, China as a graphic designer.
We are a small to medium size, established Advertising and Design Firm in Beijing run by Hong Kong management personnel. We are looking to open a sister company and looking for an experienced graphic/interactive designer to cope with our business expansion immediately. Our core business includes Corporate Identity, Advertising, Mulit-media, PR & Marketing consulting mainly for foreign companies which are looking to come to China.
Should you are interested, please send me more of your works or a personal website for review. Fluerent English is required. Basic Chinese is preferred.
My reply is as below:
Thank you for your recognition for my work. I’m rather tempted with your offer. But sorry to say, i am still committed to my current job, and will not discontinue within the short term.
Would like to thank you once again for your invitation. Will hope to work together again in future.
And in my spam mail, i have another invitation also through coroflot:
Hi Lay Hiang,
got your contact from the web coroflot. We are currently looking for any fresh grad/or experience designer to come onboard our design team, no working experience required but attitude counts. We have an immediate vacancy so do give me a buzz should you be interested.
Have a great day:)
Raymond Tay | Art Director
Actually, i am very TEMPTED… Hahaha~ But i started to be inferior about my work again. Nothing impressive.
