I have been applying for jobs now for over a year or more and have read enough alerts to recognize the scam that was attempted on me. I feel like I need to pass the information on so that you will not become a victim. I will try to keep this as short as possible: I received an email to my yahoo account that told me that my resume had been reviewed for a position that I applied for on a particular job board. I was directed to my
I saw a job for a car sales person at a dealership near me on one of the major job search sites. I applied and sent my resume. I got a email saying to come in for an interview.
