Twice I've received e-mails from recruiters with wording along the lines of this quote
... your name has come to me highly recommended by one of my contacts in the ...
I'm of course curious who the recommending party is. The first time I asked in my reply, the question was simply ignored.
Before I ask this second recruiter, I'd like to ask if there's a general rule that such information is secret, for some reason?
Should I just be grateful and not pry?
