Never give your personal bank account information to potential employers through job postings, as it's a red flag. One of the most important steps in the job search process is researching the company before applying for any job to ensure its legitimacy and reputation.

Employers who are serious about hiring will usually conduct interviews in person or over the phone, not just via text or email. If a job posting asks for payment in exchange for a job, it's likely a scam.
