When applying for jobs online, there are some important things to keep in mind to avoid falling victim to fraudulent job postings. Job postings that ask you to pay for access to 'exclusive' job listings are often scams. If an employer only wants to conduct your interview via email or text, proceed with caution. Avoid job postings that ask you to recruit other people to join the company or program. 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. Don't provide your credit card information to a potential employer, even if they say it's for a background check. Make sure that the job posting is genuine and the company is hiring by contacting them directly for confirmation. It's important to check the website URL and make sure you are on the legitimate website to prevent any harm. To avoid working for a company that doesn't prioritize diversity and inclusion, research the organization's policies and initiatives before applying for any job. Always be wary of job postings that promise high pay for little work or no experience.
