Spotting Fraudulent Employers/Postings

While most employers who post jobs and internships are legitimate, there are also some bad apples out there preying upon naive job seekers.  It is important to pay attention to postings and research opportunities before applying.


So how do you know when to be suspicious?

Your Four-Year Career Plan

There are certain steps that you, as college students, should take to help you explore various career options.  Just like a final exam, your job/internship search or program selection is not something you should ‘cram’ for at the last minute.

It takes time, reflection, and different experiences that will help you define what you’d like to do.  Remember, deciding on a career is a process. And it's something that will not happen two weeks before graduation.
