I actually do get a fair amount of job recruiter emails, in fact I'm interviewing for a job I found through one of them later this week for a substantial pay raise.

/for some reason I also get a million job emails asking me to be a insurance salesman
//they tell my my resume is perfect for the job, but all that's on it is field tech experience working on electronic control systems
///totally the same field

Nope, you can keep that between the two of you.

Some fields are high demand - cyber professionals and data scientists can get top dollar right now, in several different sectors and industries.  Even with less than 5 years of experience.

Yeah, the moment I posted my resume up, I started getting the insurance thing. Glad it isn't just me.
/and I'm up for a position the end of the week, more everything

What if the six figures are all zeroes?

Personally had to use this line two weeks ago to a cold calling recruiter:

(regarding the salary of a position) "Yeah, that's what I paid in income tax last year"

I read the headline as "sex-finger jobs."
Either are okay, I guess.

What about less than 0 years of experience? Because I have that, and I think I can fake it for a few paychecks before getting caught.

I hear there's a fantastic opening out west if you have a theoretical degree in physics...

No, because you'd never get through the interview process for those positions.  They'd ask their first question on IO/IA approach, and they'd know you were full of it.

Similarly in the IT field any of the technologies associated with supporting the data scientists are also paying well and desperate for people. Hadoop/SAS/Business Intelligence reporting tools/etc.

PhD Biomedical Engineer.  Get the insurance emails all the time.  Just assumed they are fraud/data-miners and not real job offers.

I get 1000 emails a day... all work related. No, i'm not exaggerating, and no, i don't read them all....
The crux of my day to day job is now explaining how/why i missed their email.

Big dad scientists A/B tested how much they should get paid, and it turns out the answer is a lot.

Google and Dell keep emailing me they want to hire me....

This seems kind of specialized, like it's going to take a few years for anyone to get into this job market if they're not already there... I'm in relatively big data (Telecom) and I want to make the jump, but it seems like what I do (so much SQL...) isn't what "Data Scientist" means...
