Safe Job Searching Tips

* To protect our users, Net-Temps works diligently to prevent jobs that are misleading, illegal or false *
from being posted on our website. However, you may occasionally come across a false job that
illegally tries to collect your personal information or solicit money. This is a direct violation of our
policies. In the event you come across such a job, please contact Net-Temps immediately by
sending an email to and include the job reference number and title.

      Here are some guidelines and tips to practice when applying to jobs online:
  • Never give out your social security number. Instead, try requesting a phone number
    so you can verify why they need this information and determine if it sounds like a
    legitimate request or not.

  • Beware of jobs requiring payment. A good example of this is, "To receive your
    introductory package please provide the following credit card information..." A lot of
    work from home jobs are like this. Do not give out credit/banking information unless
    you are positive about the company requesting payment and you know exactly what
    you are getting. Check to make sure you are on a secure site.

  • Do not give out personal information that is not work related, such as age, height,
    marital status, eye color, etc., either online or over the phone.

  • Use passwords that have no relation to you, never use phone number, date of birth,
    etc. Change your password frequently and NEVER give it out. Try to avoid using the
    same password for multiple accounts.
