How To Recognize ‘Fake’ JOB Offers And Interview Invites On The Internet

Outlined Steps On How To Recognize Fake JOB Offers And Interview Invites On The Internet. As a JOB seeker, you should always be smart to the core on how to dictate a fake or legitimate Job offer once you come across any.


Looking for a job anywhere globally, you should have it in mind that, not all JOBS being published on several webpages, blogs, social media platforms are legitimate. So you have to be careful when you get a job offer or interview invite as most jobs are advertised solely to recruit you into their marketing firm to sell products, but under the guise of a global opportunity.


A client of mine got an invite for a HR role last year for a job she applied for on Linkedin and was so excited and scheduled an interview coaching session with me, upon sending me the invitation; I googled the address and name of the company and found out it was a fake invite.

Funny enough, if she had gone for the interview she would have been put through over a 6-hour information session by the firm and made to part with a huge sum of N40,000 or more to secure her spot for a so-called life-changing opportunity under the guise as a Job.

Luckily for her, she consulted me first and I was able to deliver her from this tragic experience she would have encountered if not for my extra research.


So how do you easily dictate fake job offers and interview invites when anyone pop-up on the internet, social media pages?

Here’s how to recognize fake Job offers and interview invites:


  • Firstly, you have to google the name of the Company, Firm, or Organization.
  • Secondly, endeavor to check through online blogs to read other peoples review about the company.
  • Thirdly, check to see if you truly applied to the company for a role.
  • Fourthly, ask a friend or family member if they can help you verify the company either online or physically.
