During times of uncertainty we see increased fraudulent job postings and scam employer tactics. Be vigilant to ensure legitimacy. The Career Center conducts extensive vetting of employers in Handshake, however, some slip in undetected. Outside of Handshake, vet employers using the tips listed on the Job and Internships Searching page. Scammers look for new tricks and it can be difficult to detect. If you have questions, reach out to the Career Center for an extra set of eyes and a check-in on how to proceed.
