Have you received a job offer via text from a "Rosa at SLD"? 

With a follow-up interview on Zoom?




CSUCI has seen an increase in job scams recently targeting our student population via text to their personal smartphone.

Here are some ways to spot these employment scams:
  • If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Do your research, look online, and reach out to infosec@csuci.edu if you have any questions or concerns.
  • Most jobs require a resume, an interview, a background check, and a job application.
  • Asking you to buy a gift card to iTunes or any other service is a sign the offer is a scam.
  • Do not share your information until you have verified the possible employer as being legitimate.
