Primary responsibilities:

To avoid being scammed when applying for jobs online, it's important to be aware of some essential factors before submitting any job application. Protect your finances by avoiding job postings that require the use of your personal bank account. Be wary of job postings that require you to pay for shipping or handling of products. Don't apply for any job without researching the company first; it's important to verify its authenticity and reputation before accepting any job offer. If you're not sure if the job is genuine or not, give the company a call to confirm it. Employers who only conduct interviews over text or email may not be reputable, so do your research before applying. Don't be fooled by job postings that use fake job titles or positions to entice applicants, as they may not actually exist within the company. Don't let desperation for a job cloud your judgment when evaluating the legitimacy of a job posting. To prevent any issues, verify that you are on the official website before taking any actions. Keep your personal information safe while job hunting by carefully vetting potential employers and only sharing information with those you trust.
