During this time of year around spring commencement, students are looking for work between semesters or port-graduation. Hackers know this and plan their phishing campaigns accordingly. This specific attempt poses as a part-time job offer, paying an absurd amount of weekly cash with very little information.

The keys to this phishing attempt are the sender, the link contained, and the signature. Just because the sender has "tntech" in their address does not legitimize the email. Tennessee Tech does not have a Placement & Student Services department. Anyone can create a TinyURL link, but official correspondence always comes from a verified individual with a professional signature. When in doubt, report to abuse!
