The posting process does not imply that SHRUG in any way represents or recommends the employers, nor does it guarantee the accuracy of job posting information.
You should have applicants contact you directly and preferred method of contact should be noted in posting.
Some examples of job postings that will not be accepted by SHRUG's Job Board include the following:
Post to the Job Board
SHRUG is offering the job board as a service only and makes no recommendations regarding potential employers or student employees.
We are not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of private employment. All hiring, scheduling, and compensation for job postings are handled directly between the you and the employer.
Although we screen posts we do not research the integrity of the organization or individual person who lists a job with us.
Employers and students are urged to perform due diligence when offering, applying for, or accepting private employment by requesting from each other references or any additional information needed to establish qualifications and credentials so as to ensure an overall fit between employer and applicant.
Avoiding Fraudulent Job Postings
Visit the company web site. If the company in question doesn't have a web site or the web site does not seem to match the advertised job, there may be cause for concern. Note the professionalism of the web site. Is there specific contact information? Are jobs and career information actually posted on the site? Lack of information is a red flag.
Search LinkedIn by "People" and the advanced search fields for "Company Name." Click the "Current Companies Only" checkbox to receive information on people currently listed as employed by this company.
Google is an excellent tool to research the company. Search by the name of the company to see what information you can find. You can also search by " scam" to see if this company has been reported as a scam.
Check with Consumer Services
Two organizations to utilize are: the Better Business Bureau or the Federal Trade Commission to see if any complaints have been lodged against the company.
