Safeguarding Your Job Search

General Tips For Avoiding Scams:

We strongly encourage you to review our tips on safeguarding your job search. It is very important for you to educate yourself about potential scams. Keep in mind that a job is probably fraudulent if:

  • There is a large salary for very little work - especially those postings that state thousands of dollars of income per month with little or no experience required.
  • The positions ask you to give credit card or bank account numbers, or copies of personal documents.
  • The jobs ask you to send payment by wire service or courier.
  • The positions offer a large payment or reward in exchange for allowing the use of your bank account - often for depositing checks or transferring money.
  • The position allows you to work at home. While there are legitimate opportunities for individuals to work from home, be sure to research the company in advance of applying.
