It doesn’t matter where you live in the United States. Finding the right job can be difficult. Because of the stiff competition, it doesn’t matter what degree you have. This is especially true regarding landing a job that will provide a fulfilling and long-lasting career. No longer can you land a job based on a college degree or licensing. Now is the time to start networking and looking for work. You don’t want to be pushed around by employers or job recruiters looking to make a quick buck. Employers and job recruiters use many shady tactics to get applicants who are discouraged and ready to accept any job offered. United Aid Group is there to help those who fall into the trap of shade recruitment tactics.
- False job titles or non-existent jobs posted
Some recruiters are shady and will post job titles that have nothing to do with the job they want. This can be a way to create the impression that the job requires more qualifications than it does.
A recruiter looking for someone to test products in a grocery or retail store might look for recent college graduates or students by referring to the job as marketing or public relations. This is face-to-face marketing. This is not marketing or public relations, but it is still face-to-face marketing. A second tactic to avoid being caught is to post jobs in a company that aren’t available to recruit candidates who are desperate for work and are willing to accept any job opportunity.
- Rigging Assessment Exams
A handful of temporary hiring agencies only use this tactic. You will be given an assessment when you arrive. It is straightforward, and even if you earn 100 per cent, there will be at most 2-3 incorrect answers. A recruiter who isn’t trustworthy may not give you the correct answers and refuse to provide them. Third-party assessment platforms are a more reliable method of assessing candidates.
- You can minimize your qualifications or ignore your education.
Interviewers who are shady will know precisely where they want you to be placed before they even interview you. Sometimes it’s not the job you applied for but one they desperately need to fill. They will disregard your previous experience, no matter what you tell them, and they may insist that the company offers a non-accredited training program to help you improve your technical skills. This could discourage you from seeking the same skills from an accredited source. This will lead me to the next scammy practice.
- Offering a lower-paying job position
After the employer has ignored your information and read through your resume as if it were a colouring book, they’ll suggest a job that pays less than the original job posting. The salary offered for the job is often lower than that of comparable positions or in the same field. Employers who know you are less likely to accept the job may offer a training program that allows you to move up in 6-9 months. But don’t count your luck.
