Job searching for summer, internships, or post-grad positions? Be careful of the personal information you share ahead of being offered the job and filling out paperwork or signing contracts. Legitimate employers should NOT be requiring your Social Security Number before you have officially accepted a position, and then working with their Human Resources representatives to complete required paperwork. IF you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to ask Career Services for guidance. (AND, you should not have to pay a fee to apply for a legitimate position.) BEWARE!
