Have you come across the recent job vacancy advertisement for Osun State University on social media? Think twice before applying, as the university has officially disowned such adverts. But what makes these adverts fake, and how can you distinguish authentic job opportunities from fraudulent ones? Let’s uncover the truth behind these social media job postings.
The Management of Osun State University (Uniosun) has recently raised an important alert regarding misleading job advertisements that have been circulating on social media. These fake adverts claim to offer both academic and nonacademic staff positions at the University. In a statement by the University’s Public Relations Officer, Ademola Adesoji, it was clarified that Uniosun does not publish its job advertisements on social media platforms; rather, they are placed in national newspapers.
“We hereby state categorically that the University is not currently recruiting and the general public should disregard and ignore the advertisement as it is likely to be an old advertisement. “The fraudulent advertisement is just another means to defraud the unsuspecting public. “Furthermore, it presupposes that whoever brings such old advertisement back to circulation has a motive of misleading and misinforming the public for his/her selfish interests.
“To this end, the Management of Osun State University wishes to reiterate that there is currently no massive recruitment into the University. “The advertisement is Fake in its entirety and should be ignored by the general public,” Adesoji added.
