Protect yourself from Job scams

While the Career Development team screens all job postings and potential employers in an effort to filter out illegitimated postings, universities continue to be a target in fraudulent employment scams.

It is important to be aware of warning signs and protect yourself and your privacy against potential job posting scams.

Warning Signs

  • The post has poor grammar or spelling
  • The email domain uses a free site (e.g., @hotmail, @gmail).
  • You are not able to contact or identify the person posting.
  • The email domain listed on the posting does not match the company website domain or is misspelled.
  • The company phone number is unlisted or not available when you call.
  • Company website only includes the job posting info and not information about the company.
  • They request personal information from you, such as your SIN, photo identification, date of birth.
  • You have been made an offer without submitting a resume or being interviewed.
  • They request access to your bank account.
  • They request initial investment, cash checks, e-transfers, or wire money.

Be sure to research all job postings carefully. Verify that the job exists and visit the company’s official website, or even call the company to confirm.
