Female CEO Shares the Email She'll Never Forget Published: April 15, 2014

As CEO of tech startup Locket, Yunha Kim often sends out emails to potential employees to ask if they'd be interested in meeting with her about a work opportunity or available position at her company. And although she's professional in sending out these emails, not everyone is professional in how they reply, according to Yahoo Shine.

Recently Kim, whose company helps users change and personalize their Android smartphone homescreens, contacted a male developer about whether he'd be interested in joining Locket. He responded, "Hey Yunha, I'm pretty happy with my current job, but if you're single I'd like to date you. Perhaps there are some unconventional ways to lure me away from my company (besides stock options) if you know what I mean. ;)"

Unfortunately, Kim, whose startup boasts investors like Tyra Banks, says that such emails are not rare. She posted the email, with the sender's name blacked out, in a post she wrote for Medium about the pros and cons of being a female CEO. Underneath the screencap, she added, "And the sad news is, this is one of the more professional emails."
