That would be by hunting down personal information any way possible, making guesses about potential job matches, and making a ton of cold calls.

Not exactly precision work there :)

I got one of those phone calls. They got your name through your university.

Thomas @ Wed Feb 15 16:51:49 2006 EST

Awesome. Mason's really showing its gratitude for that profile then.

Thomas @ Thu Feb 16 13:53:56 2006 EST

I'm guessing that's what she meant to say instead of "networking and referrals."

Ah, English. Such a broad language sometimes.

Let me guess:

Primerica Financial Services

The "Amway of financial services"

They are SO SHADY, toeing the line of legality. I work in marketing, so we are well aware of their questionable practices.

Could have been. I didn't really catch the name, hence the blank. It's not because I felt like protecting telemarketers.

Chris P @ Thu Feb 16 14:19:03 2006 EST

I got a cold call from them too, so I am almost certain that it is Primerica.
