While the outlook might seem bleak, New York Business Partners CEO Rafael Diaz sees things a little differently. “There are many companies across the country that will provide opportunities for success and personal development,”
However, he warns prospective job seekers of some of the most recent employment scams affecting candidates. Most recently, companies are attempting to trick prospective employees into parting with their money. Many companies will encourage new employees to either invest in their own training, to make an investment in their client’s product, or to buy the products that they are selling. “The issue with these companies,” says Raf Diaz “is that they are costing applicants not only to waste their time and money, but to also walk away from other great opportunities.”
Among some of his tips for avoiding these situations, Raf suggests researching a prospective place of employment. This can be done with a simple phone call. You can ask their recruiting department or human resources contact for information or for their website. You can also view sites such as The Manhattan Chamber of Commerce and The Better Business Bureau to confirm what the business does and that they do not have complaints filed against them. There are a few key areas that one should cover when researching a prospective place of employment:
-Ensuring the company has real customers, clients and products. Call the BBB or Chamber of Commerce, or simply verify this on their website.
-Check that the position advertised is coming from a credible, well-know career site such as CareerBuilder or Monster.
-You should not have to invest any money in training or employment with the company
-Arranging a preliminary or informational interview to gain a better sense of what the company offers, what the work environment is like, and who you could potentially be working with.
“I would automatically raise a red flag if there are any promises made in regards to how much money you can make from what amounts to a few hours of work per week,” says Managing Director, New York Business Partners. “You only get paid a lot of money for working hard, and I would not believe promises of financial gain if not proven.”
