To avoid being scammed when applying for jobs online, it's essential to keep in mind some critical factors before submitting any job application. Consider setting up a Google alert for the company name and job title to stay informed of any news or updates related to the position. Legitimate employers will never require payment in exchange for a job. If an employer only wants to communicate via email or text message for a job interview, it's worth investigating further.
