Responding to Advertisements

Anyone can create an advertisement so be cautious when responding to ads.

There are help-wanted ads everywhere; in the press, on bulletin boards, in the University Center, residence halls, academic buildings, lampposts, supermarkets and more. Students should use caution when responding to ads especially if they are not affiliated with Adelphi.

  • Be aware of suspicious criteria for positions.
  • Always go with a friend when responding to ads.
  • If the premises make you feel uneasy, do not continue to pursue the job.
  • Be wary if ads where the stated salaries are much higher than you might expect.
  • Be especially cautious when employment is in a home or apartment.

There is no such thing as easy money. Little work for a high salary is a signal for trouble.
