John, a couple questions, if you don't mind...

1. What do you do if they don't tell you the company name?

2. If they tell you a company name, and you haven't been submitted there,
what and how much detail about the job, location, industry, etc. do you
require before you consent to proceeding further? How do you elicit the

I address it the following.

I get contacted by an agency. They tell me they have a position ideally
suited for the situation (aren't they all).

I tell the agency that I want to make sure than I'm not submitted by
more than one agency for the same position. Therefore, if they tell me
only the company name..say AT&T, I'll let them klnow if I've been

If I say nothing has happend at AT&T, then we discuss the details from
there since I deal with positions as first come first served and they
are protected.

However, knowing that an AT&T can have hundreds of reqs out, if I say I
have been submitted to the company, I'll then tell them where
geographically. If I say Princeton and they say it's not, then we keep
talking. If they say it is Princeton, then I give them some key
functions. "Is it doing proposals?".


This way, even the most paranoid agency will be comfortable.

On the other hand, I know a numbere of agencies quite well and we trust
each other to deal fairly with each other.
