* The Magner Career Center at Brooklyn College has no affiliation with these employers and can make no representation or guarantees concerning positions listed. While the vast majority of positions are legitimate, we have seen an increase in the number of scam employers who are using job posting sites to scam students. While the Center does vet the employer and postings, it is the student's responsibility to do additional research before they apply or interview for a position, even if the posting is on HireBC. Scam employers are becoming more sophisticated in evading detection during the vetting employers by masquerading as legitimate companies.
If an employer asks for personal information via email such as your social security number or to send money/deposit a check that is a scam.
