Are online job providers legit?With the huge advancement in the job sector, lately I have come across several sites where one can provide their qualification details , post their CV, and they are shortlisted for interview from prospective companies through that site. This indeed is a very smart move as it saves time, both for the employers and employees, also it helps the employers with a huge number of handy available candidates, which makes their recruitment process a little less troublesome.
I came across some sites names, Shine.com, Naukri.com , LinkedIn, Indeed. But one of the most surprising site I came across was Facebook. Lately Facebook has started this advertisement kind of area, where the employers post their candidate need with the type of work they would like them to get hired for, also they provide the contact details and sometimes even salary, which i feel is a great initiative. Personally I have even seen some of my friends and juniors, actually get a legit job from Facebook.
But none the less, nothing comes without a con, these sites are definitely time saving , but these sites have also lately been used as scams, there is no authenticity of these jobs, they tend to contact you by the number provided in your CV, give you lucrative offers, and then ask for a registration fees, which sometimes they even guarantee to reimburse from their first salary. I personally have never been into such scams but have come across several posts and videos depicting the same.
Please share your views , as to have you came across any such scams?
