Job seekers, be careful of job scams

News

Job service is warning any job seeker to take precautions because there’s an uptick in job scams.

Many tend to happen online. 

The scammers are after your personal information to use for identity theft or are after money. 

Job service says never give out personal information unless you’ve verified the company, or better yet have met them in person. 

If you are asked to forward money to a third party, it’s probably a scam. 

“If something doesn’t feel right when you’re talking to that potential employer, step away from it. Why are they asking me these questions, why are they asking me for all this personal information right up front or why do I need to pay to be able to apply for this position, you must be on guard with those,” said Susan Ogurek with Job Service. 

Job service holds weekly workshops on Mondays, to teach people how to spot and avoid job scams. For more information on that click here.
