Office Job Search: Caution for Job-Seekers

Warning! Risks:

Always BE CAREFUL when considering posting or uploading your resume to an online employment website (i.e., jobs aggregator). Resumes contain personal information that could potentially be circulated. In the worst case, your personal information could even potentially be used to perpetrate identity theft.

* When asked to create an account, always use a unique ID and password that you DON'T also use for other online accounts (such as banking)

* NEVER respond to employment websites that ask you for any kind of personal financial information or commitment

* Whenever possible, try to make DIRECT CONTACT with a company that is offering a job online to ensure that the job posting is legitimate.
