How to Spot Suspicious Recruitment Messages or Job Offers

Watch out for these warning signs of a suspicious recruitment message or job offer.

The “Recruiter” Contacts the Applicant First

It’s normal for a legitimate hiring manager or employer to contact you on LinkedIn or other job-hunting sites. They may also ask you to send a resume and cover letter to a verified email address.

However, it may be a scam if they contact you out of the blue via text message or email if you never applied for the position first. It’s also suspicious for them to offer you an immediate job position or make a strange request. 

You Receive an Instant Job Offer

A legitimate hiring manager will never offer you a job on-the-spot through email, text message, or instant messaging services like Telegram or WhatsApp, especially if you didn’t apply or contact them first. 

The “Company” Offers Unusually High Salaries

Some job descriptions may offer extremely high pay well above the position’s typical range. If you notice this, dig deeper into the company and vacancy before applying.

You Receive Unclear Details & Requirements

Scam job offers provide almost no job details or ambiguous descriptions and requirements. 

Examples include entertaining only “literate” job candidates and asking for sensitive personal information, such as your social security number or address.

The “Recruiter” Tells You to Pay

Watch out for companies, recruiters, or job offers requiring payment from applicants. Genuine job opportunities will never ask you to pay for anything to apply for a job or after you receive a job offer. 

The Company Posts Unprofessionally Written Job Descriptions

Pay attention to how the recruiter writes a job opportunity or offer. Check emails or texts for grammatical errors, inconsistent syntax, and inappropriate writing. These are all signs of a scam job offer.
