*Career Services would like to make all job seekers aware of an increase in employment opportunity scams across the country that are posted online.  Please be cautious when applying online!  Do not honor requests to use your own money on behalf of a business before payment is given, or deposit a check in your bank account and then wire money.  Our office is doing everything we can to make sure those positions are not posted on Handshake, but urges you to contact us if you view anything that appears suspicious in nature. 
McKendree University Career Services does not guarantee information about employers and/or positions listed on our website and Handshake, and is not responsible for the working conditions, safety, wages, or other parts of employment.  Please use caution when applying for positions.  Career Services abides by the principles set forth by the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
