In today's economy, more people are looking for work. One way is to post your resume online, but take care. Identity thieves use these sites to steal information. These tips can help minimize your risk. Use only sites that protect your personal data. Casual browsers should not see your full name, address, etc. If a potential employer is interested, they should get personal information only by request from you. If you do receive a job offer, be cautious if it seems too good to be true. It may be a ploy to get your information. If you receive an email that asks for money, or for your Social Security number, ignore it. Also, be sure you have the ability to delete your resume and other information once you have completed your job search.
