Fraudulent Posting Notice
The Center for Internships & Career Development makes every reasonable effort to screen employers and opportunities that appear on Handshake. However, we cannot guarantee that every employer and posting you will encounter is legitimate. We urge students to learn as much as they can about the opportunities they are considering. Please be aware that there are FRAUDULENT job postings on many job databases. If you see a job posting that meets the following criteria it’s probably not a real job offer. Do not click on any links in that posting and DO NOT provide any personal information especially social security number or financial information! Thoroughly research the employer and the opportunity. If you suspect that a posting is fraudulent, do not click on any links and do not provide any personal information.
Contact the Center for Internships and Career Development, firstname.lastname@example.org, immediately and end all communication with the employer. Employment Scam Targeting College Students Remains Prevalent
If you believe you are the victim of fraud resulting from a posting, please contact the Department of Public Safety or the police, as well as the Center for Internships and Career Development. If the incident occurred entirely over the Internet, you can file an incident report with the US Department of Justice, or by contacting the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
If you are hired and have concerns about the legitimacy of the company or an unsafe work environment, contact the US Department of Labor
