12 Signs Your Job Interview Is A Scam

12 Signs Your Job Interview Is A Scam

Posted on

I have been job hunting in NYC and some of the things I have come across have been shocking. I refuse to use any company names due to legal purposes, but this is what I have experienced. Since our current economy does not favor young people, we are willing to do whatever it takes to get a job - and unfortunately, we often get taken advantage of. If you find yourself in any similar situation, please remove yourself.

4. Paperwork

When you go in for your interview, they should already have your resume. So, if you are asked to fill out a piece of paper with your personal information and your experience, be careful.


You know those trusty restaurant reviews on Yelp? Don't forget they do it with businesses too (and most of the people are brutally honest). Yelp and review the company before you go in - if you don't know who they are. This can save you!

8. The "Preliminary" Interview

Let's be real; if they call you for an interview and then tell you when you get there that it is only a 3 minute preliminary interview, then we have a problem.

Disclaimer: I have actually read many reviews online that individuals have gone on these second interviews where they are told to wear comfortable shoes and are sent on a subway to another city to make cold calls.
