Job Scam & Phishing Information

Scammers are targeting students at universities across the country with fake job "opportunities".  Please be cautious in responding to any job opportunity that seems "too good to be true". 

Common Warning Signs include:

  • Requests for financial/personal information
  • Unusal salary for the position or experience required
  • Email addresses that don't match the employers domain (ex. ending in @googleinc.com rather than @google.com)
  • Unusally fast resume reviewing process
  • Giving an offer immediately after an interview
  • Grammatical errors on the website or job posting
  • Short or vague job description
