When applying for jobs online, there are some important things to keep in mind to avoid falling victim to fraudulent job postings. Avoid job postings that ask you to transfer money between accounts as this is a common scam. Be cautious of job postings that require you to sign up for additional services or subscriptions to be considered for a job, as these are often signs of a fraudulent opportunity. Researching the company before applying for any job is necessary to ensure that it aligns with your values and career goals. Reach out to the employer directly to validate the job posting and its legitimacy. A legitimate employer will usually schedule an in-person or phone interview with you, not just a text or email exchange. Always be careful of job postings that require payment for anything. Stay alert for any unusual or suspicious requests from potential employers, such as sending money or using a specific payment method. Make sure you're on the valid website to prevent any harm.
