Default Orange Juice Associates "Very well might" be working with your employer

I was randomly messaged by a recruiter. He told me someone suggested I might have a solid resume. I asked him about the individual who said this was the case and if it was someone working for my employer. He responded, "it very well might have been" and said he no longer wished to communicate with me.

With that said, I highly discourage anyone to work with Orange Juice Associates.

Has anyone else felt their boss/employer might have had a recruiter do the same to them?

What do you mean by this? I think they were just saying someone recommended you when they just looked you up on actuarial directory or linkedin.

Not too long after I was contacted by the recruiter, my boss had us listen to a webinar (by a recruiter) about how actuarial students should essentially be quiet and take crap from their supervisors. My supervisor would make sure to ask me how I felt after each scenario described. The same day, I was contacted by Orange Juice Associates, who advised I stay at the company I was at.

Sounds like an episode from a sitcom.

It could be that they just said they heard positive things about you to get you in a good mood before they talk to you, I remember getting a lot of messages from a certain recruiter that started with something like that but via email or linkedin.

That being said, I do know someone gave out others' phone numbers to a recruiter without their permission at a previous job. It was someone at the analyst level probably trying to hunt referral bonuses, no direct reports or anything.
