Safety Tips for Employers

Safety Is For Employers Too

Employers tend to think that safety is only a concern for job seekers, but we all need to exercise caution. The overwhelming majority of SexyJobs users are trustworthy and well-intentioned. Nonetheless, please take the same common sense precautions online as you would offline.

Ask for References

A job candidate shouldn't be offended if you ask for references. This could include a list of other job seekers who've worked with the candidate, as well as business colleagues who can vouch for him/her. Ask the references how long they have known the candidate and get their general impressions and opinions of the person. If the candidate is reluctant to provide references, you may want to move on to other candidates.

Research Potential Hires

It is a good idea to carefully research a job candidate's background before making a hiring offer. Reviews sites, forums and blog sites are all potential sources of useful information, but do be aware that not all sources are necessarily accurate or reliable.

Choose a Public Meeting Place

If your office does not have other employees present, you should meet job candidates at a public place like a cafe. Do not meet in a secluded place or invite strangers into your home.

Take Your Cell Phone

When going to meet a job candidate for the first time, be sure to take your cell phone with you.

Tell A Colleague/Friend/Relative

Don't go to a meeting without telling somebody where you are going. Give them the contact information of the job candidate. Let them know how long you expect to be gone.

Trust Your Instincts

If for any reason, you are getting "bad vibes" about a job candidate, trust them. If the person sounds to good to be true, he/she very likely is!
