Artificial Intelligence Changes Employment

We have been hearing a lot about Artificial Intelligence over the past several years. Some experts predict that AI will eliminate half of all jobs that require humans. Yet, others say that we have nothing to fear, because AI may rid many jobs, but it will also create new employment opportunities.

According to a new Brookings Institution report, robots aren’t replacing everyone, but a quarter of U.S... see more

Hey all,
Just wanted to bring this situation to light, although you may be already familiar with it: FAKE INTERVIEWS! So this company reached out to me regarding my resume, saying they got it from an employment search engine that I posted it on. They proceed to conduct an interview with me, online, because they are a German based company. (I looked them up as well as the recruiter, and it all matched up). We go through a lengthy online interview... see more

Do you have employers wanting you to go to google hangouts for interviews? Those seem to be scam to me.

Over the last 2 days I have had 3 job offers by 2 different companies offering jobs working from home. They use legitimate company's to do this scam and here is a little of how it works.

They send you an email of a job offer to work from home using a real company's name that does do some positions remotely and they say the positions pay anywhere from $15 to $28 an hour.

Then when you reply they want to set up an interview but the interview is... see more

I have been looking for employment for a while now, but I urge everyone out there to not fall for stuff like this, just because you may need work. I think its not a genuine thing, but since I am young and very new to the industry, I want the opinion of fellow job casers. FYI I havent... see more

Recently I have seen an alarming increase in posts from people inquiring as to whether a position they have applied for is a scam. Sadly, more often than not if you suspect a potential position for which you have either applied for or have been contacted about is a scam, it usually is. Below is an e-mail I received with regard to a position I never applied for which in my opinion is most definitely a scam:

There is a man who wants me to pay $319 for the watch starter kit and so I'm no longer than a free user in their website. I told him I can't afford it but he keeps pressuring me. I would only make 10% commission. I think the website is HTTPS://myworldgn.store.booksandstitches.com

I signed up as a free user but can't afford the expensive kit. Any advice?

I’ve seen a lot of posts in the community about finding a work-from-home job. That’s why I wanted to share a few tips on how to find one, so you can avoid running into any scams or dead-end job positions.

Use keywords like “remote” and “virtual”: If you’re performing a job search, avoid using “work from home” in your search. Instead, use words like “remote” and “virtual”. These are more common in legitimate job descriptions.

Thanks for the advice
