With so many people unemployed, there are more scammers out there than ever with the fake job posting. Online job boards can be used by people posing as hiring companies, so it’s very important to be aware and cautious when you’re looking for a job. You can follow these tips to avoid fake job postings and keep your time, money, and identity safe.

Job Description has Grammatical Errors

Companies take the process of recruiting new talent extremely seriously. They’re going to spend a lot of time crafting the job posting, and they’re going to make sure it has been proofread. If a job posting has multiple typos and grammatical errors, you should be very suspicious.

Good Salary and Minimum Experience

Avoid postings that sound too good to be true and remember that a job that offers a 10 LPA salary requires really good skills and experience. Job posts that says no skills or experience required but offers very good salary are very likely to be scams.

No Company Website

When you try to find more information about company on google, you found no information. Even company don’t have website. Be sure it’s a scam. Don’t share your resume or any other details to such job postings.

Asking for Fee

Avoid job postings that ask you to pay a fee. Recruiters are paid by employers, not by potential job candidates. If a job posting requires you to pay a fee in order to submit a resume or move on to an interview, it is very likely a scam. A requirement to pay for training materials or web training seminars should also raise a red flag. A genuine company will not require you to pay for your own training.

Mismatch Email ID

You get an email from a recruiter who claims to represent a fabulous and well-known company. The company logo might even be at the bottom of the email. Look closely— if the email associated with the posting or the invitation is a personal one (think Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, etc.). Don’t respond and attach any personal documents.

By keeping your eyes open for these warning signs, you should be able to avoid falling victim to a fake job posting.
