Job searching online is one of the most popular ways of finding employment. It’s fast and easy and you can tailor your application to each job description with ease. However, you still need to be safe online. Some risks with job hunting can be:
You will never be asked to pay money in exchange for employment, DBS or other security checks, so don’t fall for it!
Remember not to divulge personal or financial information in any online application forms or your CV.
If you find browsing job boards to be infringing on your online safety, try an online community such as LinkedIn. You can create a profile and showcase your skills and experience whilst sifting through employer listings. Online job communities make it easier to interact with future employers, and smaller companies may offer direct contact information. This will make it easier for you to stay safe online.
