Hawkeyes Beware: How to be on the look out for fraudulent employers or job postings

Monday, April 17, 2017 - 1:28pm

Notice: We have seen an increase in the number of fraudulent employers and postings recently on campus. We do a series of "checks" on every employer and position in HireaHawk.com before approval, but sometimes the "scams" are hard to spot and they find their way into the system.

Check out our web site for tips on spotting these fraudulent employers and postings on HireaHawk.com or other web sites, or ones you may receive via email- http://careers.uiowa.edu/how-spot-fraudulent-employers-and-postings

Please contact the Career Center (319) 335-1023 if you have received any communication from employers that seem to be fraudulent or if you are wondering if something is fraudulent. We can help you determine what your next steps should be, reach out to other students that may have been contacted and make sure the employer isn't active in HireaHawk.com.
