Beware – recruitment scams on the increase!

It has come into notice lately that various individuals or organizations have used real company  names to solicit advance fees and documentation from applicants in relation to non-existing jobs by sending out letters with what appears to be real  company logo.

Fraudsters pretending to represent Genuine companies are sending e-mails, letters and texts offering employment to prospective employees. These offers often look legitimate and include job description, salary, and benefit details.

These fraudsters then ask for payment to obtain visas or to process immigration documents.

Always Remember the following :

Genuine companies never ask for payment to process documents, and  never refer you to a third party to process applications or visas, and  never ask you to pay costs.

 Genuine companies Never send money or pass on personal details to anyone suggesting they can provide employment with any Company  and never reply to an email address that does not end at company domain

TO Protect you from such scams : Always remember the following about real Companies;

Companies  does not ask for money transfers or payments from applicants to secure a job, either as an employee or as a contractor, and will never ask for payments towards travel expenses, travel insurance or visas/work permits, etc. Therefore you should assume that such individuals and organizations are not providing genuine offers or services. Also During our recruitment process you will always meet in person with a company  employee or representative before any formal offer is made.

8. Tell people who are working that you are looking for a job – friends, family members , neighbors anyone.. Make a list of all of your friends, relatives, and acquaintances who are working with well known companies. Call each one and ask them if they know of any openings that they could recommend you for.

9. Search for job consultants / agents on internet , create a list of them and send them your CV. Never go to just one agency. Always go to as many as possible. It is easy and it increases your chances a lot!

12. Attend Job fairs and Job seminars

13. Prepare well for interviews in advance. Practice your answers for standard questions in most of the interviews such as : ‘Tell me about yourself?’ ; ‘What do you know about us ?’ ; Where do you see yourself 5 years from now ?’; ‘what’s your future plans?’

14. Research the company. Become familiar with the past of the company. Who started it? Where? Who runs it now? Be inventive, and out do the other candidates.

15. When you go for the interview – dress appropriately to create the right impression

16. Prepare for a Situational interview. Be ready to answer questions such as “Describe a time you had to work with someone you didn’t like.” “Tell me about a time when you had to stick by a decision you had made, even though it made you very unpopular.

17. If you are still studying or yet to complete your course, try starting with volunteering jobs for an organization that focuses on something that you’re passionate about or part time assistance jobs. This will help you to have a good understanding of your future job as well can highlight in you CV. You should emphasize your volunteer experience on your resume, as companies that take care of their workforce well tend to favor candidates who help the public somehow.

18. Also another option is to be self-employed or an entrepreneur, in which case your mission is not to find and get a job, but to create a job.

19. So now stop complaining about no work, get off the sofa and go knock on doors with resume in hand. If you do that all day, every day, you will then be choosing which job you are willing to take.

Good luck folks… Send us you feed back ! Edufive.com/feedbacks
