Identifying a Scam Job Posting

What is a Scam?

The great majority of employers are honest, but for those employers who are not, be aware of these security tips:

  • Protect Yourself!
  • Never pay a recruiter or an employer for a job
  • Never supply a bank account, social security, credit card, or deposit a check and forward it from your account.
  • If the job sounds too good to be true, it probably is (for example, “no experience necessary” “earn money fast”)
  • When you are in doubt, ask a career counselor in Employer Engagement and Career Design or Google the company name with the word “scam.”
