Job Posting Approval Policies
All postings must contain accurate information concerning the position(s) being advertised. We reserve the right to deny the approval of job postings that are proven to be fraudulent or misleading in their description to potential candidates.
We also reserve the right to decline postings that require a financial investment by candidates, or positions that may involve unreasonable risks or postings for positions that conflict with the NACE Principles of Ethical Professional Practice.
All job postings will be reviewed by one of our staff members and approved within two business days of being submitted by the employer. Postings will expire after four weeks. If a posting needs to be removed from the job/internship board, please email email@example.com with a link to the posting.

Red flags to spot a fraudulent employer:
- You received a random email, or check, out of nowhere
- The job only says that they need help, but there are no specific tasks or duties
- The employer will only communicate via text or email but will not speak on the phone or meet in-person
- The employer does not use a company email address, but communicates using a personal account and typically with poor grammar or spelling
- They are sending you money without meeting in-person
- You do not sign any formal hiring paperwork
- They require that you purchase materials, software, equipment, etc. to begin your role
- The employer indicates that they need a “virtual assistant”
- The salary for the position is much higher than you might anticipate – for example, if they are advertising $30-$50 per hour to work “whenever you want,” that is likely not a legitimate offer.
Action steps to take if you are contacted by a fraudulent employer:
- Do NOT deposit any random checks that you receive in the mail without potential verification. Bring your suspicious checks to the bank to deposit, bank tellers are trained to identify fake checks
- Report potential fraudulent @ufl.edu emails to email@example.com and notify the Career Connections Center at HireGators@ufsa.ufl.edu to assist with the tracking of frequency
- If you have already lost money file a police report with the University Police Department.
