Google spam now called "networking attempt"

Received this from Stephanie Buran, Technical Recruiter at Google:

Hello Alex,
My name is Stephanie Buran and I am a Recruiter for the Google.com Engineering team. I found your contact information on the Internet. I am interested to know more about your past work experience and openness to new opportunities. We currently have positions available at Google that may be a good match for you. If you are open to exploring these opportunities further please send an updated version of your resume in word, html, or pdf form to me as soon as possible. Let me know when would be a good time to talk, please include your phone number. (If you have “Google Talk” please feel free to contact me through your gmail account.)To give you an idea of the Engineers I am looking for I have included links to job descriptions below.
Please take a look at these links for more information :
I hope you are not bothered by my networking attempt

When I asked her how did she got my e-mail address, she said this:
Hi Alex,

I do various internet boolean searches pairing terms like: Engineer, software, computer science, iPV6, etc. Your contact info came up, so in my routine I sent out an email with the thought that I may get a qualified candiate in return.

I do hope you are not bothered by my previos email, as I mentioned.
