In a statement posted on Twitter Qatar Airways cautioned prospective job seekers against fake employment offers.
“Prospective employees are being targeted with fake employment emails/advertisements, that appear to be from Qatar Airways or Qatar Airways Group subsidiaries, sent by unauthorised employment agencies and unknown domains asking for personal information and in some cases money to proceed with a job offer,” the airline said. Some other big corporations have also recently warned people against fake employment offers and scamsters try to make quick money from unsuspecting job hunters. All emails should be checked for their authenticity and cross verified.
The airline also mentioned that they do not request payment from candidates during the recruitment process. “All emails relating to employment opportunities will only be sent from a verified Qatar Airways email address (@qatarairways.com.qa or @.<>.qatarairways.com), and all job postings are only available on the Qatar Airways official website and official social media channels. Qatar Airways does not request payment from candidates during the recruitment process. “If you suspect that you are being scammed, please advise Qatar Airways immediately on firstname.lastname@example.org. Our official vacancies can be seen at https://careers.qatarairways.com,” the airline said in the statement.
