Avoiding Misleading Representation & Protecting Your Privacy
Ensuring opportunities are real and taking control of your details
The Archway Group urges all those who are in the job market to be aware that false or misleading job advertisements may be on the internet. It is important therefore that before sending off your personal details, you read the job advertisement carefully, research the advertiser and even telephone the contact. By asking the right questions, you will be able to ascertain that the job is a current and real opportunity, that the person representing the role, particularly a recruitment consultant, does indeed have permission to recruit for that role, and whether the role meets your criteria.
Make sure, too, that you are protecting other people’s privacy when sending your résumé to another party – leave off referee details. These can be provided at a later date, after you have had an interview and when it is appropriate for the reference checking process to commence.
A critical aspect of searching for a new role is staying in control of what happens to your personal details.
