Phishing scam targets college students through job postings
Beware of responses to job postings where contacts seem to be phishing for your personal information. Phishing scams attempt to trick you into providing sensitive personal information (i.e., social security numbers and credit card/banking details) or into sending money or other items of value.

Starting your job search can be difficult and scary. The market is somewhat scant so one of the best tips is to begin your search at least 6-9 months before you need to be employed. We can help you in a variety of ways. Our goal is not only to make sure that you have the resources to find your first job, but to be able to find each subsequent job you will need in your career.
