In addition to the hundreds of great opportunities from legitimate employers listed on the Career Center website and Handshake, we unfortunately see occasional fraudulent postings as well.
Despite our monitoring of incoming postings, it is important that students carefully review job postings for signs of fraud.
Here are some warning signs to look out for when evaluating a potential opportunity:
Scam and fraudulent postings are not limited to online job boards. Some scams are posted on physical bulletin boards around campus and may seem like they're affiliated with or promoting advocacy groups or causes that students care about.
Please don’t respond to these offers. When you receive one, forward it to email@example.com and/or call the University Police Department (760)750-4567 immediately.
