When looking for jobs, always remain vigilant of scams and fake postings. Here are some ways that you can protect yourself.
1. NEVER part with your money. Most reputable companies will absorb the costs in the application process. 
2. RESEARCH the company. Visit the company's website, if they don't have one or don't provide a contact, tread carefully.
3. LEGITIMACY of email accounts. Be sure to do research on the legitimacy of email accounts you receive emails from. Some emails may use a corporate domain while lots of other small companies may use free g-mail accounts.
4.SCAM LISTS are an essential part of looking for legit postings. The Better Business Bureau and Federal Trade Commission have listson scam organizations. Be sure to check them out when in doubt.

FACEBOOK FRIDAY (Push through Facebook with Graphic)

Are you confused as to what you're interested in or what kinds of careers you may fit into? No assessment will tell you exactly what career to pursue. They can, however, give you insights into your preferences and personality traits to help guide your search process. Most career services offices provide the opportunity to take the the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) + Skills Confidence Inventory. Contact your college's career services office for more information.



FACEBOOK FRIDAY: (Push through Facebook with Graphics)

The difference between a contact and a connection: " In networking, you can think of people as "contacts" or as "connections." Contacts are one-way: You only reach out when you need something. It's a numbers game in which you believe your chances are better by having as many as possible. (If you cold call 1,000 people, someone is bound to bite, right?!) On the other hand, "connections" are two-way: You care about the people who are in your network. You give them as much as you want to receive, and you stay in touch whether or not either of you needs something. And the results are better for everyone." - Adrian J. Hopkins - The Muse
