Fraudulent and Scam Job Postings
We work hard to keep fraudulent postings out of Handshake by using some common “red flags” typically considered suspicious. While red flags don’t automatically remove a job posting, we research the company and posting if suspicion arises before making a decision. You should research suspicious companies or postings, too (or don’t apply). The Fraudulent and Scam Job Postings guide outlines red flags so you, too, can attempt to identify such scam or fraudulent postings. Our position: Never apply for a suspicious job.
