“Allways look a gift horse in the mouth”

Who never fantasized about the perfect job? That in which in addition to doing what we like, we receive a good financial compensation for it. All of us have dreamed about that at some point in our lives, and whoever says no, lies.

As children, dreams were a little different, from princesses to superheroes, the important thing was to have imagination. But, over the years, our expectations change a little and what is starting to attract us more is undoubtedly a good amount of money at the end of the month, resulting from the daily effort we have spent on our jobs.

However, unfortunately the picture is not very satisfactory nowadays, due to the lack of existing employment, and many times it is because we trust and accept the minimum of what they offer us. The more desperate our present is the more nostalgic we will have of our past and the more mistakes we will make in the search for employment, only to get out of this kind of suffocating situation.
The easiest and fastest way to find employment is through web pages, designed to offer jobs. 

However, it is necessary to be careful, because, with the increase in the number of candidates exploring online opportunities, the tendency to false job offers has increased accordingly in order to exploit the applicants to obtain their personal and even bank data.

To prevent this type of scam it is important to pay attention to some aspects:

    • "Red signals" - from spelling/grammar errors to email addresses that do not contain the domain of the company, extremely flexible hours, immediate incorporation into the company, unpaid trial period, all those details are indications that the offer It may not be real.
    • Request for bank information - many scammers take advantage of the opportunity to request bank deposits from candidates, but a real company never requires money to work with them.
    • "Easy money" scheme - if the compensation is well above the average, the ads do not specify the details or the demands and the job seems too good to be true, then it probably is not a true offer.
    • The indication of the telephone number of the company - generally the type of offer where there is a telephone contact tends to be fraudulent because it is the company that will contact you after receiving your data by email.
    • Offer too attractive abroad - it is always important to carry out intensive research to verify both the offer and the existence of the company because if there is no reference to the company or the information is very limited then the offer is probably false.

It is not mandatory to suspect all the offers that arise in the search for employment, but you have to keep your eyes open when we are planning our future, not making life easier for those who want to cheat us. It is worth bearing in mind that there are many unscrupulous people who only want to benefit from the suffering of others who are desperately looking for work.
