Learn how to protect yourself

Please be aware that there are Internet, email and telephone scams in which fraudsters are taking advantage of job seekers by pretending to represent companies, including World Wide Technology (WWT). Victims are asked to participate in bogus interviews, asked to fill out fabricated employment applications and, on occasion, have even been issued fake offer letters and illicit checks — all with the goal of trying to entice victims to pay money or disclose sensitive personal information.

tips for avoiding hiring scams

Correspondence originating from free email accounts, such as Yahoo, Hotmail and Gmail, are not from WWT and should be ignored. A WWT employee will not solicit candidates through a free email service.

Disregard any requests that ask you to provide payment to participate in the hiring process (e.g., purchasing a “starter kit,” pre-hire training or something similar). WWT will not ask you to pay any money at any point in the hiring process. In addition, any payments made by WWT will be from official accounts bearing the World Wide Technology, Asynchrony or Telcobuy name.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any suspicions about a WWT job opportunity that you received.
