Job interviews conducted over text or email are often a red flag for potential scams. It's important to research the company before accepting any job offer to ensure its legitimacy and credibility. Make sure that the job posting is legitimate by contacting the company directly and verifying their hiring process. Avoid job postings that ask for a fee to apply or interview for the job. Remember that protecting your personal information is crucial to avoid identity theft and other forms of fraud. Always double-check the company's reputation and legitimacy before applying for a job.
