Fraudulent job postings

As you search for job opportunities, please be vigilant. It has come to our attention that scammers are increasingly taking advantage of job seekers.

As you search for job opportunities, please be vigilant. Scammers are increasingly taking advantage of job seekers. One way scammers do this is by spoofing a job posting and impersonating a company on job boards. After a job seeker shows interest, the scammers might reach out to you directly and ask you to text them identifying information such as a photo of your drivers license or your social security number.

For Springboard Collaborative opportunities, here is information about our hiring process to understand if an opportunity is real or spoofed.

  • Springboard cross-lists many jobs on sites like Indeed and LinkedIn, but all of our job postings can be found on our job seekers page. If you think a posting might be spoofed, crosscheck with https://www.springboardcollaborative.org/get-involved/job-seekers/.
  • All email correspondence comes from emails that end in @springboardcollaborative.org. If you see correspondence about a Springboard Collaborative job opportunity that comes from a different email, do not reply.
  • The first step in our hiring process is to reach out for a phone or video interview. If you receive an offer before doing any phone or video interviews, this is an impersonation.
  • We send an offer letter and HR paperwork through secure online tools. We would never ask you to text identifying information to a phone number.

If you experience any of these things while applying for a job at Springboard — or are otherwise concerned about the validity of a job posting — please alert our HR team at hr@springboardcollaborative.org immediately.
