Red Flags: How to Identify a Potentially Fraudulent Employer or Posting

The Steinbright Career Development Center explicitly makes no guarantees about job listings or the accuracy of the information provided by employers. While the Steinbright Career Development Center strives to keep fraudulent and scam postings off Handshake via a vetting process, it is the responsibility of students to perform due diligence in researching employers when applying for or accepting off-campus employment and to thoroughly research the facts and reputation of each organization to which they are applying. 

If you have encountered a fraudulent posting, company or organization, please contact Steinbright at 215.895.2185 or email scdc@drexel.edu so the posting can be investigated and appropriate action can be taken. To avoid fraudulent job postings, Handshake has tips to ensure you know what to look out for on their Understanding Job Postings page.
