To avoid wasting your time and effort on scams and fraudulent job postings, it's essential to keep in mind some important factors when applying for jobs online. Legitimate employers will usually arrange for an in-person or phone interview rather than just email or text correspondence. To prevent any possible harm, make sure you are on the official website before proceeding. Job postings that promise easy money or guaranteed earnings are often scams. Before applying for any job, research the company's training and development programs to ensure that they offer opportunities for professional growth and skill-building. A legitimate employer will never ask you to use your personal bank account for business purposes. Don't hesitate to contact the company to validate the job posting and ensure that they are hiring. Stay alert for job postings that require you to pay money upfront or share sensitive information. Be on the lookout for job postings that use urgency or scarcity tactics to get you to apply quickly or provide personal information, as these are often signs of a fraudulent job posting. Consider using a separate email account for job-related communications to keep your personal and professional correspondence organized and secure.

TikTok is committed to providing reasonable accommodations in our recruitment processes for candidates with disabilities, pregnancy, sincerely held religious beliefs or other reasons protected by applicable laws. If you need assistance or a reasonable accommodation, please reach out to us at
