Bring your passionate, authentic self

Before you proceed with your job search online, make sure to keep in mind these important elements to avoid scams and fraud. If a job posting is asking for payment for anything, it's most likely a scam. Watch out for job postings that ask for your bank account information or other personal details. If you have any doubts or concerns about a job posting, it's always best to do some research before proceeding. Researching the company is a crucial step in the job search process to ensure that it's a legitimate and reputable organization. If you are unsure about the legitimacy of a job posting or potential employer, seek advice from a trusted friend, family member, or professional counselor. Don't provide your personal bank account information through job postings, as it can put you at risk of fraud. A company that conducts job interviews solely through text or email is likely not legitimate. Validate the job posting's authenticity and the company's hiring intentions by contacting them and requesting more information.
