Protect Yourself from Fraudulent Job Postings

Career Services diligently screens against fraudulent employer postings in our Handshake database. However, students should use reasonable caution in all avenues of their job search and employer communications.  This document outlines common fraudulent warning signs, for example, an employer who asks to send you a check to deposit before a job has started. If you notice suspicious employer language or behavior, please report it to Career Services staff immediately.
