You want the best job you can get, right? That's why you're here. But, with all the scams and identity fraud going on these days, it's little wonder you might be cautious of job hunting online. So, rather than staying trapped in a less than ideal job, stick to our safe searching tips and prepare for that job you've been dreaming of.
Firstly, always be wary of posted job adverts where there is no mention of the company's or recruiters name, where it's based or contact details.
Job advertisements that are 'too good to be true' usually are just that. If you are in doubt then check out American site www.lookstoogoodtobetrue.com. It lists information on the latest global scams and frauds. Don't allow yourself to be one of the next victims.
Always check out whom you are sending your application to. If you are in any doubt, pick up the phone and call them first. Employers and Recruiters posting on MYJOBSPACE.CO.NZ are required to be registered and authorised before access is obtained. They are encouraged to display their full contact details beside each job advertisement.
Legitimate and bona fide employers will never ask for the following information so NEVER give it out:
* Your social welfare/ IRD number
* Credit card and bank account information
* Your driver licence number
* Personal non-work related information such as personal pics, marital status, eye colour
* Your username and password for any site, including MYJOBSPACE.CO.NZ.
Please contact us immediately should you get asked for any of the above private information by any advertiser on this site and help keep us one of the safest and fastest growing job sites in New Zealand.
