I have a very different experience with recruiters. They usually
start off by giving me a brief description of the position and tell
me what city it is in, then ask me if this sounds as if it might be
of interest to me. If I tell them yes, they tell me the name of the
company and ask if I know anything about it, whether I've applied
there previously, etc., and then we move to the final question of
whether I want them to submit me. I don't think I've ever had a
recuiter decline to reveal the client company's name once I've
told them I would like to know more about the "opportunity."
This is probably because I generally only send my resume to
the same recruiters I also work with as a hiring manager, so
any recruiters I don't know who contact me out of the blue are
responding to one of my anonymous online profiles and at the
time they email me don't even know my name. I can't recall ever,
at any time in my careers as either an engineer or a writer/pubs
manager, applying to a recruiter's ad cold and having it result in
a real job opportunity.

If the
recruiter does not trust me enough to tell me what the company is, I don't
work with them.
