I got this email today:
Dear Valued Candidate,
It is my pleasure to inform you that you qualify for a 2012/2013 membership to the National Association of Professional Women,
the largest network of professional women in the United States.
The NAPW highlights and profiles the country’s most accomplished professional women in over 200 industries and professions.
We provide an exclusive and powerful networking forum for our valued members to communicate and achieve social and career success.
I never thought I would be asked to join such an exclusive group. Of women.
I know. It’s just spam. But for a moment there, it felt so nice. After all, one can dream, can’t they?
