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.
