Woman shares 10 red flags that the job your applying for is a scam


A Twitter user has pretty solid way of identifying if that kajobo you are excited about is fake.

Twitter user @CareerCoach @Miss Phiona shared 10 eye opening red flags you should be aware about and we love this thread.

She says there are job descriptions which outright tell that something isn’t right.

Here are the 10 signs that a job is probably a SCAM:

1. You are asked to pay money. This is the BIGGEST red flag, any job that requires you to pay money e.g. admin fees, background checks etc. is often a scam.

2. Dream jobs that sound too good to be true and have exaggerated salaries and benefits.

3. Very simple job requirements – everyone qualifies to apply.

4. Getting a job offer immediately after applying.

5. There is pressure for you to act quickly in accepting the offer. (This is so you don’t get adequate time to research the legitimacy of the job.)

6. Being asked for personal information upfront e.g. your banking details, identity documents.

7. Getting a job without an interview or proper screening.

8. Unprofessional communication and badly written emails.

9. Companies using free email addresses (e.g. yahoo and gmail) is usually a red flag though not always.

10. Little to no info about the company online.
