You may have seen the posts recently online. Concerned Twitter users warn job-seekers of potential scams and dangerous users who post fake job listings.

We know that youth unemployment levels are at an all-time high so these scammers have a captive audience with their fake job adverts and appeals for young people to attend job fairs and interviews. But how do we stop these and how do we spot which posts and legitimate and which are fake?

Finding the perfect job for you can seem challenging, especially considering the many job descriptions and online tools you can look through. With many opportunities out there, it can also be difficult to discern legitimate job
positions from fake offers from scammers. However, there are several key traits of these types of scams and knowing what to look for can help you find reliable and genuine opportunities best suited for you.
