Strong Lead-In

I got a resume from a recruiter, and there was a small pitch for the candidate that included some basic information.

"I am sending the resume of . He is currently unemployed and was making in his last job as a QA engineer. I thought he could be a good fit for this particular position cause he is a highly motivated software test engineer ...."

I haven't even opened the resume yet and already I'm thinking this is a really weak candidate. The moral of the story:

Be mindful of how others are representing you.

I'll read the resume anyway, but this candidate is starting off a leg down through no fault of his own.
