How to Avoid Recruiting Scams
In today’s connected society, online scams and fraud are increasingly common. Scammers may try to take advantage of job seekers by impersonating companies and even individual employees to solicit up-front fees or personal information.
Several clues can help you identify recruiting scams.
- Are you being asked to pay equipment fees, travel fees, or make a payment of any other kind – even if they claim that you will be reimbursed? BroadPath never seeks fees from job applicants under any circumstances.
- Correspondence from free e-mail accounts, like Yahoo, Hotmail or Gmail. BroadPath does not solicit candidates through a non-BroadPath email address.
- Does the email come from a @broad-path.com email address? Any legitimate recruiting email from BroadPath will come from an email address that ends with @broad-path.com. Even if the email address contains the word “broadpath,” it may not be from BroadPath. Examples of possible fraudulent email addresses include:
- Were you contacted in a chat room (e.g., Google Hangouts)? BroadPath does not use chat rooms or chat applications for recruiting purposes.
