It got my attention and I laughed.

I don't think it is a scam because it is so specific and the target audience would be so small.

Pay seems high for someone with 3 years experience (this is considered entry level) but about right for five years. And 3 years for a project manager? That is not enough for anything but the simplest project.

But the "limited relocation" sounds standard for the industry. Usually they will pay partial if you sign an agreement to stay one year.

The talk about product lines and competitive markets seems strange... we don't sell product lines but being a recruiter he might be repeating what he sees so often.

If it is a scam it's only targeted to about 100 people in New York state and why would he do that?

If I were looking I would answer it just because it intrigues me.

This is the recruiter (http://www.crossroadsconsulting.com/fork/Job-Openings-ListList.asp - broken link). Maybe all the salaries seem high? Not that I would know though.

Fire sprinkler systems are a niche field where there may actually be few qualfied candidates even in this economy, thus the higher salary. There's someone on here called NICET4 who posts about the NICET certification and being a fire sprinkler INSPECTOR and how the jobs go begging because you need a special education only offered in a couple of states, etc.

Oh wait a minute (feeling a "duh" moment and reediting)......that NICET4 guy IS the OP here. Sorry about that.

Actually the salary seems low for the area but sounds about right for someone with as little experience as they are asking for.

But the whole point was the wording which I got a kick out of.

If I were looking I would never answer an ad through a recruiter and don't know why anyone would.
