Sentara warns job seekers about nationwide recruitment scam

Norfolk

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Officials with Sentara Healthcare are warning job seekers of a recruitment scam that is happening with employers nationwide.

Fictitious jobs have been posted with various companies, including Sentara, and after applying the applicants are asked — via email or text — for their checking account information to purchase “training materials.” Sentara recruiters say they will never ask applicants for personal banking information.

Here’s the how to apply with Sentara:

  • Visit sentaracareers.com or navigate to the careers page through sentara.com.
  • Click on a job board link — search for errors in spelling or grammar that look unprofessional.
  • Beware of pay and benefits claims that look “too good to be true.”
  • Emails you receive about the job are from a Sentara email address, which is @sentara.com.
  • Job offers are made verbally by Sentara recruiters, not by email or text.
