Scams are Everywhere - Protect your job search!
Identity theft if rampant. Even your job search could cause you to fall victim. Protect your identity by watching for these ruses:
Stimulus come-ons - while the government is recruiting, they will not send emails or letters touting job openings from the federal stimulus plan.
Interview invites - Scammers will send emails to invite you to travel to an interview and recommend you arrange travel through THEIR "corporate office" for a discount. It is a way to obtain your credit card information.
Legitimate sites have been hit - Scammers have infiltrated legitimate job search sites. Be cautious when you post any of your information on-line or by email. Save emails with potential employers and ask that they contact you by phone or interview you in person.
