How To Avoid Getting Scammed #JobAdviceSA 27/01

Job scammers make money out of desperate jobseekers who apply for lots of jobs and are keen to share their details and go to unknown buildings for an assessment or interview on the promise that they will be given a job.

The more jobseekers learn about how to spot a job scam, the more sophisticated jobscammers become, so on this week’s #JobAdviceSA chat we are going to discuss in detail all the signs that will help you avoid getting scammed and wasting your time, money or even running the risk of being kidnapped!
