Avoid Job Scams

Anytime a company is seeking a monetary transaction, this should be a red flag that this is a scam. Never deposit checks sent from a company or give personal information, such as bank accounts, to a company during the interview process. Emails from companies that ask you for money or want you to deposit checks before doing any work are scams.

If you receive a message similar to this, “We received your resume from your career services for a possible job placement. Please respond to this email if you are still job hunting or you are looking to earn additional income,” this could also be a scam.

If you receive any emails or paperwork from a company that may not seem legitimate please forward the information to the Career  Network. To learn more, please refer to the World Privacy Forum's resources for avoiding job scams.
