Volunteer Work over the internet. Somebody could start a list for resources for those who need things. Like basic necessities. Like food. Personal cleaning supplies. Maybe ask a local church, for extra gift cards. Or something else, there are other resources, like helping people on a chat line, for those who can't help themselves. There are so many of them.
I work as a hair stylist in a fairly busy salon just outside of Knoxville. Alot of clients have been canceling because they're afraid of catching the #coronavirus.
I need to make money!! I can't keep having my clients cancel. Is anyone else in the human services world facing this?? What can I do? #help
Unfortunately, fake job listings are more common than we would hope. Here at Jobcase, we work hard to make sure that all scammer profiles are deactivated, but sometimes they do slip through the cracks.
Here are a few red flags that a job might actually be a scam.
The Company Is Hard to Find Online The first thing you should do if you feel there is something “off” about a company is Google them. Even the least tech-savvy businesses usually have some sort of basic webpage that describes their company. If there is no trace of them online, be wary.
It Sounds Too Good to be True If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. When you see a high salary, topnotch benefits and a lot of big promises (job growth, pay increase, lots of perks, etc.) - proceed with caution. Be on the look for keywords such as “earn money quick” and “a lot of salary potential.” Typically they will also require you to work for less than minimum wage for some time or place you on probation where you don’t get paid at all for a “trial period.”
Vague Job Description If the description is vague and/or contains multiple typos, chances are it was computer-generated or put together by an individual writing in a non-native language. Ask to speak with a hiring manager directly to get a better idea of the role and expectations.
No Interview If you were offered a job with no interview process, your alarm bells should be blaring. If a company is in a rush to hire you and immediately asks for “payroll” information such as bank account and social security numbers, it’s typically a scam.
Sending Money / Using a Personal Bank Account Legitimate companies won’t ask for money or ask you to pay for something upfront. Never send any money or give out personal banking information.
Please be sure to report any suspected scams by clicking the three dots in the upper right and selecting Report. That will help the JC Team find them quicker!
Good luck with your job search!
