Recruiting Scam? (Advice)

Hi all,

Recently offered a job through a recruiting agency that I’m not sure about.

They haven’t asked me for any personal info or bank info yet. The job isn’t too good to be true. My interview was with people from the actual company that I would be contracting with (confirmed their info and photos on LinkedIn). It’s an engineering position and the interview was very short (25 minutes) for a 6 month contract to potential hire position (but I know the chances of hiring are low). My experience is well-catered to the position and I’ve done what they’re asking for before.

The thing is that the recruiting company was founded in February of 2021 and has no real website or LinkedIn presence. They are registered as an LLC in NJ and have an official email (but no website).

They just sent the contract over and it looks okay, but nothing comes up when you Google the company so I’m really not sure. The only reason I’m considering signing is that my interview was with engineers and lab managers from the actual company.

Thoughts?

    That sounds sketchy, don’t sign for it.

  2. It is odd that the company is using a seemingly new recruiting agency but there may be good reasons for that. One example is that it was just founded by people from the recruiting agency the company used to use. I.e., folks from the company want to work with the same people. I suggest getting back to someone you interviewed with and ask if the recruiting agency is indeed the one they do business with.

    Was the interview in person?
