Empowering Students to Successfully Manage Potentially Fraudulent Employers

February 13, 11:30 - 12:30PM CST / 12:30 - 1:30PM (EST) 

Call Leads: Barbara Thomson and Catarina Caulfield, Rutgers

Fraudulent employers exist and may target our students. Many students do not know how to determine if job postings are legitimate. Some students miss the warning signals, accept these job offers, and encounter adverse financial consequences. How can Career Services professionals best serve students and help them to handle fraudulent job opportunities? Join this conference call to learn about the strategies implemented at Rutgers University and share ideas on how to best help students avoid job scams.

Review these questions before the conference call:

  • Who can share an example of working with a student who received a fraudulent job posting?
  • What steps does your organization currently take to help students with potentially fraudulent employers?
  • Does anyone collect data on fraudulent job posting activity?
  • What strategies would be helpful to implement to assist students with managing potentially fraudulent job postings and employers?
  • Are there ways we could work together to help students manage potentially fraudulent employers?
