Have Questions? Contact the Office of Career Services by phone at (501) 812-2826 or by email at for more information.


Regarding off-campus jobs posted through UA-PTC LibGuides (LibApps):

  • Off-campus non-work study employment opportunities are not under the jurisdiction of UA-PTC - the college makes no recommendations or guarantees about positions/employers and assumes no liability or obligation for verification of job standards, continued employment, or affirmative action procedures.
  • The Office of Career Services at the University of Arkansas - Pulaski Technical College
  • Due to the volume of jobs received for student employment, we are unable to research the integrity of every position listed.

The Office of Career Services and UA-PTC LibGuides (LibApps) do not at any time send your information to potential employers.

Follow the guidelines below when dealing with potential scams:

  1. If you received an e-mail from UA-PTC administration, faculty, or staff using a third-party e-mail account outside of the UA-PTC network, please DO NOT click any links inside the e-mail and DO NOT respond back to the e-mail. JUST DELETE IT. This also applies to any suspicious e-mails received that you were not expecting. 
  2. You can also report it directly to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center at

Helpful Tips for Avoiding Employment Scams:


  • NEVER pay for employment opportunities.
  • Never provide personal or bank information over email or phone
  • Never take cashier's checks or money orders as a form of payment, as your bank will hold you accountable for any bounced checks.
  • Never wire funds to an employer.  Any employer who requests wire funds is a scam.
  • Never apply for a job listed by someone from another country.
  • Never apply for a job with someone who indicates they are away on business or out of the country and need someone to begin right away.
  • Never agree to a background check unless you have met employer in person, and do not provide your personal information over e-mail or phone.
  • Never apply to a position that is emailed to you unsolicited.
  • Never apply for an employer whose language is urgent, alarming, or threatening.
  • Never apply to a position that has poorly-crafted writing with misspellings and bad grammar.
  • Never respond to strange or abrupt business requests.
  • Never contact an employer whose sending email address doesn't match the company's it is coming from.


  • Be aware of potential job posting scams. Please use extreme caution in applying for off campus positions.
  • Do use common sense and caution when applying for positions, especially when applying for positions off-campus.
  • Research the employer. Check their website and call the number listed on their website – do not call the number in the posting. Scammers will often use a legitimate business with fake numbers and email addresses as a cover, so don't be afraid to contact the business and inquire about the posting. You can also verify through third party organizations like the Better Business Bureau.
  • Meet face to face with potential employers. Be sure to choose a public place for your meeting, tell someone where you are going and bring your cell phone with you just in case.
  • Be skeptical. If a job offers a lot of money for very little work, it is likely a scam. If a job seems too good to be true, it probably is.

What To Do If You Believe You've Been Scammed:

  1. Stop all contact with the scammer immediately.
  2. Contact UA-PTC Police & Public Safety director, Mark Stafford immediately at and provide him with all correspondence.
  3. If the scam happened via an e-mail you received, ensure that the e-mail address who contacted you is blocked.
  4. If you found the position on the UA-PTC LibGuides (LibApps) Student Job Board, please send an e-mail to with the job posting, employer name, and a description of the scam so that the position can be removed.
