We work hard to maintain the quality of jobs on Mustakbil.com, but we advise you to keep in mind the following advice when searching and applying for jobs on this or any other job site:

  • Google and try to find out the basic information about the employer
  • There is no need to provide bank account details, personal financial information or payment to any person or organization when applying for a job.
  • As part of the job application process, recruiters/employers/agents should never ask you to pay fees for recruitment or processing services, such as training materials, interview fees, test fees, CV/resume improvements or administrative costs etc.
  • Avoid applying for jobs where the role requires you to process payments via a personal bank account or transfer money by wire services such as Western Union or Moneygram.
  • Finally, if you see an opportunity which appears too good to be true, please let us know, so we can investigate further.
