Welcome to the SHiFT Security Center
SHiFT is dedicated to providing the safest possible environment for you to search for jobs and find qualified employees. With that goal, we ask that you keep a few simple security precautions in mind when evaluating job postings on SHiFT.
Regrettably, all online companies are susceptible to occasional scams. While SHiFT makes every effort to prevent this abuse, it is not immune to such activity. To help you conduct a safer job search, we've assembled the following security-related articles and resources. Familiarizing yourself with this information will help you better manage your career.
- Conducting a Safe Job Search
While fraud is prevalent online, it tends to be focused on companies that derive their business from online purchases. As SHiFT is a free service to job seekers, and the contact information found in a resume can just as easily be located elsewhere (e.g. telephone listings), you can be assured that posting your resume on SHiFT is a safe way to conduct a job search and manage your career. However, you do need to be mindful about the type of information you include on your resume. For example, the following personal information should never be included:
- National Identification Number
- Driver's license number
- Bank account information
- Credit card information
- Date of birth
NOTE: You should also never share the personal information listed above with a prospective employer until you are confident that the employer and employment opportunity is legitimate.

We also recommend that you file an online report with The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).
