[look before you leap]

In the PSU Advising & Career Services office, we do our best to screen each job posting for legitimacy.  However, job scammers get more creative every day, and some may slip past us.  As you are conducting your job search, please be alert and use the following as guidelines to keep your personal and financial information safe and confidential.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

A little research goes a long way.  Visit the company website, and perform a web search of the company name and other information listed to see if information is returned regarding known scams.  Is the same position listed elsewhere online, and on the company’s official website? 

Are you able to speak with anyone in the organization?  Is the phone number consistent with the address location; does the email address seem official or is it a personal account?

Do not provide any financial information when applying for a job; this includes any bank account information or credit card numbers.  There should be no requests for money or fees associated with a job application.

Withhold your social security number and other personal identification information until you are certain the job offer is legitimate.

Be very skeptical of job offers that do not include an interview of some kind. 

If you feel that a job posting is a scam, please contact us. If you need legal advice, please contact Student Legal Services.
