In the dental job market there are some rules to interviewing that previous to now were unwritten. Adhere to these to stay out of trouble:

  1. Don’t conduct interviews by instant message
  2. Never give or wire money to potential employers if asked
  3. Never buy equipment up front
  4. Don’t give out your social security number, bank accounts or personal info until you show up on the job

You know those unwritten rules when you go on first dates? You know the ones: don’t talk about yourself too much, don’t order the most expensive thing on the menu, don’t talk about your exes, so on and so forth. If you ignore these you might just be single for life.

Just like in the dating world you have to be aware of the people who you are interviewing with. You wouldn’t give your credit card to a person you just met and similarly you shouldn’t give an employer you don’t know access to your personal information. While a Skype call might work for an interview, use caution if an “employer” wants to interview you by instant message. Similarly, you should always be cautious if you are asked for money or asked to purchase equipment before you have actually started a job.

Building trust with a potential partner is just like building a relationship with a potential employer. Check them out first and see who you are dealing with before you let your guard down.
