Characteristics of Fake Interview Invitations

Getting called to do a job interview must be a good thing for everyone who is looking for a job, especially if the invitation comes from a good company, like Kyani, for instance. However, if you happen to be called and get an interview invitation, you should not be too happy instantly. In fact, what you need to do is be suspicious and find out whether the invitation is good or not. Why? It is because, now, there are bad people who deceive others through interview invitations. So, here are the characteristics of fake interview invitations:

1. The company uses the name of a large company. In fact, large companies usually have their own recruitment center online, and they make an announcement directly on the official web.

2. The media used to perform this operation is they usually via email and short messages. The mode is to make email and short messages sometimes also use the phone. For which emails, fraudsters attempt to convince potential victims with such emails are similar to the original email of the company. Even if the short messages also use the one which is usually done by recruitment team.

How to distinguish these fake emails and short messages? Emails that are sent even though the content is exactly the same, but check the email sender’s address. Whereas for the short messages, they are usually rare to be used by large companies to inform test invitations. If any, at the bottom of the message, there will be for a check on the official web.

3. You are invited through a direct phone. The bad company uses this mode by doing a direct call that conveys that have sent an email or short message and ask for immediate follow-up. The company will say that the phone is made using the phone. However, if after you check it on the internet and the phone number to call you is not the same phone number with the one on the official website of the company, then, you need to be careful as it might be a fake interview invitation.
