Please be aware that we are seeing a rise in fraudulent employer postings. We do our best to vet each employer - however, some may make it through our process. Scammers are taking advantage of students and it’s important to know if the job/internship position is real. Things like spelling errors, incorrect company’s emails or requests for money are huge red flags. If you ever have a question whether is real please email careers@captechu,edu to report the employer.
