Beware of scam job postings
While you’re working hard to make sure you land that perfect job, conduct your job search with some caution. The Center for Career & Professional Development (CCPD) offers the Career Connect online tool as a resource for employers to connect with LaGuardia students and alumni seeking internships and jobs. CCPD does not endorse or recommend employers and a posting does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation. CCPD makes every effort to review each posting, but for your safety we ask that you research employers when applying for or accepting private, off-campus employment.
Protect your identity
Fraudulent job postings try to take your money, personal information, or both. The jobs often appear easy and convenient ways to make money with very little effort. Keep reading for some red flags you should be aware of.
1. Avoid job postings that sound too good to be true.
2. Avoid job postings that ask you to pay a fee.
3. Avoid job postings that ask for your personal information i.e. social security, personal bank account, credit card, PayPal, date of birth, etc.
4. Don’t wire money to someone you don’t know.
5. Always do your research, even if the job sounds legit.
