Reporter Zhao Chenxi is currently at the peak of job hunting for college graduates. The Ministry of Education recently issued a notice reminding graduates to achieve the "five precautions and three requirements" in job hunting and avoid stepping on "pitfalls".
The Ministry of Education reminds that in job hunting, it is necessary to strictly prevent illegal institutions from charging high intermediary fees to job seekers under the pretext of introducing work, but finding excuses to delay or directly fail to fulfill contracts; It is necessary to prevent employers or intermediary agencies from charging registration fees, medical examination fees, training fees, deposits, job stability funds, data review fees, clothing fees, and other fees in the name of employment, and then refuse to accept graduates or dismiss them midway for various reasons. Whenever encountering such situations during job hunting, it is necessary to refuse to pay various illegal fees that are required to be paid before joining the company; To prevent certain institutions from using high salary employment as a bait to promise graduates employment after training, but they must borrow money to pay training fees; To prevent certain institutions from promising high paying industry internship positions to graduates, but graduates must pay relevant service fees; To prevent organizers from seeking illegal benefits by developing personnel and requiring them to purchase goods. Those who encounter organizers charging entry fees during job hunting, allowing participants to receive compensation through layer upon layer development of personnel, should immediately stay away.
The Ministry of Education emphasizes that graduates should enhance their awareness of job safety, use formal job search channels, understand and learn about legal knowledge related to employment, and use the law to safeguard employment rights. If there is indeed a violation of one's legitimate rights and interests during job hunting, it is necessary to actively collect and retain relevant evidence, and promptly seek help from the school or report to the public security organs.
