Protect Yourself from Fraudulent Jobs

It is our goal to provide IU students with the best job and internship opportunities through myJobs, our online job portal.  Despite our efforts to properly vet opportunities and ensure legitimacy, an occasional fraudulent job posting ends up on myJobs.  Often, the purpose of scam postings is to steal your identity and/or money. It is vitally important that you know how to distinguish legitimate internship and job postings from scams.
