Here's some of those red flag warnings to be aware of in your job search:  

  1. If a recruiter asks you for access to your Facebook or social account, it's a job scam  
  2. If a recruiter asks you to buy a gift card, it's definitely a scam  
  3. If a recruiter emails you from a Gmail account or not an official company email address, it's most likely a job scam 
  4. If a recruiter asks you to deposit a check before you're hired, it's most likely a job scam 
  5. If something doesn't feel quite right, it may be a job scam, stop the interaction, and time to do some research
