Be an Informed Consumer When Using Job & Career Websites

  • Many career and job websites will require that you register or create an account to access their information. Or you may begin to use a site for free, and then hit a paywall that requires that you purchase the information.
  • Use your best judgment as to whether or not you want to provide your personal and/or contact information to a third-party. 
  • Read the fine print about how they will use your information.
  • Look for an "About" or "About Us" section of the website to help you evaluate the legitimacy of the content providers. 
  • Ask a career counselor or librarian for advice about using a specific website..
