Discussion on: Why do recruiters hide the name of the company? 🤷‍♂️

While I have quite often experienced what you've described, I have actually once had the opposite experience. The recruiter gave me a bunch of details after I added them on LinkedIn including:

  • Company
  • What I would be specifically working on at said company
  • Quite a bit about company culture etc

They didn't mention salary but I'm sure I could have asked and been given some approx figure. Honestly was blown away by that and have noted down the recruiter to contact in the future if the need arises - for both me to get a job and (if my company works out) to hire other people.

I've absolutely thanked recruiters for being transparent even though I'm not interested. The ones playing coy tend to just get a kthxbai, but the ones who give all the info needed to make a decision at least get a well-crafted response from me.
