WELCOME TO HANDSHAKE!

Students, recognize the signs of a scam job!

Although we strive to approve legitimate opportunity only, scammers get more sophisticated; to be a savvy job hunter, recognize these scam tactics and think twice before giving away personal information.

• If an employer asks you to provide them with personal information as part of the application process (including your Social Security number, bank account info, credit card info, etc.)
• If an employer asks you to pay them in order to be considered for the position
• If an employer says that they will send you a check to deposit and then have you wire money back to them
• If an employer with a well-known name is using an email address that is not at the official company’s web domain (check the address closely as sometimes the numbers/digests are just one-off from normal)
• If it seems too good to be true (i.e. the pay is $70/hr)
• If it seems shady

Keep these points in mind whenever you apply for a job through Handshake or any other open-market sources. If you have any questions or issues logging in, please contact us at aces@uwyo.edu or at 307-766-2398.
