ATS Scam Notice

There is a scam currently circulating on the internet.

Clients, please be cautious if you are approached by a “recruiting” firm and told you are being considered for an executive job. Here is what they will do:

  1. You’ll get back an email stating that although they were able to open your resume, it could not be loaded properly into their ATS.
  1. They will send you a link to “score” your resume (or straight to a site to “fix” your resume for a fee).
  1. You’ll load your resume (with NO job announcement) to be scored. It will fail.
  1. You are sent to a website that will “fix” your resume for a fee.
