While Career Services makes every effort to prevent fraudulent job postings, it is not immune to occasional scams. You may encounter fraudulent job opportunities when searching for jobs on the Career Services website and/or the bulletin boards; you may also receive fraudulent email that has been forged to make it appear as if it came from a reputable company. Use common sense, if it looks fraudulent, do not reply and report it to career services immediately.
PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION and AVOID SCAMS:
- Never provide any social security, credit card or bank account numbers to prospective employers over the phone or electronically.
- Refuse background/credit checks until you have met the employer in person.
- Never wire funds (e.g. Western Union) - anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer.
- Beware of fake cashier's checks & money orders - banks will hold you responsible.
The Office of Career Services will not post individual home based job opportunities or private services (i.e. private babysitting, tutoring, home care, photography etc…). The Office of Career Services reserves the right to decline to post any employment opportunity.
