As the school year comes to a close, the pressure to find a job after graduation builds.  While you may be tempted to accept any offer that comes your way, it is important to do your due diligence and protect yourself from scams and schemes.  If an opportunity looks too good to be true, it probably is.  If you are unsure if a company is reputable, there are some resources to assist:

  • http://www.glassdoor.com - employees who work at a company provide insider reviews on the pros and cons of working there
  • http://www.ripoffreport.com - people who have been burned in the past can report companies to this website
  • It is also a good idea to Google search the company name followed by the word scam.

The Career Services Office is here to help, and we can tell you if we have worked with a company before and how legit it might be.  Our services apply to you for life after graduation, so please contact us if you ever have any questions about your job search.  Good luck!
