I applied to a job via craigslist post. Person contacted me and asked a few qualification questions. My email disclosed my website, and resume and Linkedin.
They then proceeded to ask me for job references. I said I would like to learn more about the company and their website and location and they refused to provide any info by stating they can't provide any info until I give them references. To add to the matter, their email is firstname.lastname@example.org, the email did not contain persons name or signature or anything. Is that a normal practice or should I be wary in my proceedings?
