Important Safety Warning – Safe Job Search!

Very important please read complete message!

Dear Valued Member,

Thank you for being a part of Mustakbil.com, Pakistan’s leading jobs site. We put every effort to make Mustakbil.com a reliable and safe platform for online job search. We have taken various steps to ensure the safety of the members of our website. As a part of our efforts we send periodic updates to the jobseekers in which we advice on safe online job search and create awareness about various employment scams.

This is an important update to let you know that these days some fake/fraud companies are using a new method to fool jobseekers. They are now using Value Payable Post (VPP) service offered by Post Office to send a parcel containing some fake documents about jobs application/interview/test. Jobseekers are required to pay a certain amount at the time of receiving of the parcel. We strongly advise jobseekers that they should refuse to accept such job related parcels against which they are asked to pay any amount.

We also advise jobseekers that they should never pay any money to anybody during job application, test, interview and selection process.

We have also published a detailed blog post on employment scams, which can be viewed on the following url:

Tips for making safe online job applications

Mustakbil.com is the only jobs site in Pakistan that contacts each employer to verify its status so that every job that is posted on our website is genuine and posted by authorized person only. We hope that you will understand that due to the limited resources it is not practically possible for us to conduct in-depth verification of each employer.

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.
