IndiGo cautions candidates to beware of fake job offers

Kolkata, Oct 19 : In its bid to create awareness, India’s leading carrier, IndiGo, issued advisory to be cognizant around fake job offers.
IndiGo, through its creatives on anti-fake jobs campaign across social media and website is raising awareness of how certain people claiming to represent IndiGo are misusing the brand name and the names of IndiGo employees, demanding money in exchange for interviews, jobs, or trainings.
The airline does not charge any money for conducting interviews, providing jobs, or imparting trainings on joining. IndiGo strictly advises to report the matter to the police if someone asks for
money and promises a job at the airline. IndiGo is also taking appropriate actions for cases that
get reported, along with spreading awareness.
Raj Raghavan, Senior VP & Head of Human Resources, IndiGo said, “IndiGo is fully committed
to eradicating scams perpetuated on innocent job seekers by miscreants posing as company representatives. During the last few years, we have successfully collaborated with Law enforcement agencies who have been very helpful in apprehending these scamsters. However, we believe that this can be curbed completely only when gullible job seekers don’t fall prey to such people. I would like to reiterate that IndiGo does not charge the candidates and anyone seeking money from a candidate, however small it may be, is out there only to dupe people.”
Ronojoy Dutta, Whole-time Director & Chief Executive Officer, IndiGo said, “We have been cautioning job seekers through awareness campaigns via advisories and commercials. We believe
that as the market leader, it is our responsibility to identify and control such malpractices that not just impact IndiGo but also other companies in the sector. We have been working in close collaboration
with law enforcement department to identify these offenders with success in the past. We hope to
put an end to this menace with support from the police department and awareness amongst people.”
IndiGo’s strong belief in handling the issue with a combination of police action as well as awareness has resulted in apprehension of these miscreants in the past. IndiGo is taking various measures to spread awareness about fake job offers like frequent emails from HR leader to all employees informing them and seeking support to spread awareness, placement of “caution” posters/ standees at key spots at all airports, “caution” standee placement during hiring drives at all locations, posts on IndiGo’s official social media channels on weekly/ fortnightly basis – Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
IndiGo is also collaborating with various job portals to enhance awareness around these fake job postings. Along with this, collaterals for virtual and physical interviews have also been created to
advise candidates against fake job offers. Airline’s official career website also features a “caution”
note on the home page.
