Please be aware of fraudulent job offers that are not affiliated with Agilent Technologies, Inc.
Unsuspecting job seekers have reported receiving unsolicited contacts by phone, email or text from individuals purporting to be Agilent employees or representatives. These individuals have been offering fraudulent employment opportunities to applicants and often ask for sensitive personal and financial information. This type of fraud tends to occur through online services including bogus websites, social media accounts, online job boards, or through unsolicited emails or text messages. The fraudulent offers may include letters with the Agilent logo, the name of actual Agilent employees, and phone numbers in an effort to convey authenticity.
Warning Signs of Fraudulent Activity
- If you receive solicitations, recruiting or hiring documentation, advertisements, or emails that contain spelling and grammatical errors, or which are poorly formatted.
- Requests for personal information early in the process, such as your address, date of birth, passport information, social security number, or banking details are also signs of potentially fraudulent activity. Agilent has a confidential and documented communication process for requesting personal information once a formal offer has been made to an applicant.
- If you receive an email from an email address at a domain that is not affiliated with the company (for example, @yahoo.com, @gmail.com, @live.com, @consultant.com, etc.), or a domain that mimics – but is not actually the same as – the domain used by the company. Agilent email addresses all end with @agilent.com or @non.agilent.com.
- If you applied for a position or received a notice for a position at Agilent and it does not appear on our website, please disregard it.
- Agilent will never ask you to submit for a position via email – we only accept online applications submissions via our Agilent Careers website at https://careers.agilent.com.
- Applicants are asked to participate in an “interview” by chat or email. Agilent does not conduct “interviews” by chat or email.
- Insistence on urgency for you to act on the correspondence received within very short time frames should cause concern and may indicate potentially fraudulent activity.
