Generally, when someone approaches me with a position, and I am
interested in it, I tell them exactly this: "I'm interested, but before
we go any further, I need to know who it is I would be working for."
Only once have I ever gotten the name of who it would be I was working
for. Unfortunately, they wanted someone else who had a college degree
(though, as I understand it, that person had no practical experience and
didn't work out. Oh, well, such is life...).
