A friend put me in contact with someone who is hiring contractors. Aside from the job title, the person hasn't given any real information. I directly asked what the name of the company was and to see a job description. He replied he doesn't know me yet and would like to have a phone call first. (I have no problem with a phone call, but our schedules/time zones aren't matching up and we've missed each other a couple times).
Last year I was "offered a job" by someone who I felt misrepresented the relationship between us and the company who work was being done for. I didn't know he wasn't an employee of the company we were working for.
Why would someone not want to send all the information like company name and a proper job posting or description?
Just to be clear, I don't know if he's a recruiter or not.
