Avoiding FB Job Scams

We are job hunting in our house. Honestly, I’m always job hunting. I like knowing what’s available and I love researching stuff. Indeed is by far my favorite job website. But Facebook is one of my favorite apps. So, of course, I take advantage of the job section in the marketplace. There are quite a few jobs with attractive salaries. But some of these aren’t real jobs. They’re scams posing as jobs.

Save yourself time, energy, and heartache with this quick tip. If you see a job that looks good, visit the company page. If the only posts you see on the page are duplicate job listings with different locations, there’s a really good chance it’s a scam.

There are a couple of other clues too. Having a company name with the state and a well-known organization like Virginia Postal Services. Having a high pay rate, generic job title, and a very vague job description. “Product Specialist. Looking for fun motivated individuals to test our products and get paid.”

Always research a company you may be interested in. See what type of reputation they have online and with people you know. Some companies are just starting and may seem like a scam but in reality, they are just small and inexperienced. That’s important to know as well.

If you are job hunting too, I wish you the best of luck!

Proverbs 12:19-21

19 Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue, only a moment. 20 Deceit is in the hearts of those who plot evil, but those who promote peace have joy. 21 No disaster overcomes the righteous, but the wicked are full of misery.
