When you tell all and the company doesn't


Krisanne Elsner, Southwest Recruiting Services, was asked what to do if a company asks you for all the particulars of your life and they don't even give their name.

The jobseeker was afraid of ID theft.

Elsner advised keeping your resume name-only, no address. Never send your SS, of course!

If asked for references in this situation, provide email only. No street addresses or phone numbers.

I would advise being a little cagey. There are so many sleazies around these days.

The rule of thumb is don't put too many specifics in one place--for you or your references.
