Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to contact the author of this BLOG. If you are a hiring manager or recruiter then please put "Alex Opportunity XXX" in the title where XXX represents the hourly rate for the opportunity you offer. For example, if the hourly rate is 125 per hour then you would put "Alex Opportunity 125" in the title. If you forget to put the title in its proper format with the 3-digit number at the end then its very likely that I won't get your email.
