Just deleted another post that looked like a scam (also pretending to be another web3 company, different name) using purely notion.so to represent the brand. Let me know if you notice anything shady.

What are those fake companies trying to achieve? Just stealing private data of the engineers? Or something way worse?

Basically they are phishing engineers. In the other incident, they had victims install software for the interview (e.g. not zoom, but something your antivirus would flag!) Or, imaging the unlucky job seeker gets the “job”! They then submit their application and go through a fake background check, with social, home address, 7 years of work history, or other compromising information revealed. These days anything can be valuable to carry out further attacks. Beyond phishing, there are affiliate programs out there that compensate for installs. A scam can trick job seekers to install something before, during or after the interview.

Some job seekers may be employed, and any exploitation can be used against them with their current employer, for blackmail, extortion or even compromising their employer. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/job-phishing-social-engineering-scams-target-seekers-mcfarlane?utm_source=share&utm_medium=member_ios&utm_campaign=share_via

Job Phishing & Social Engineering Scams Target Job Seekersattachment image

In December 2022, many people in my network were laid off due to cutbacks. Already experiencing a difficult time in the middle of the worst inflation period and rising housing costs, people are waiting over a month for unemployment and compensation packages to be paid out due to holiday slowdowns.

Got it. Thanks for the explanation. Sounds awful and really dangerous.

After a year of contract work, my personal 2 cents to all Devops engineers, you should only consider contract work it is a lot of fun and you will learn a lot among different projects

I just opened the site and I immediately saw one of my old colleagues on the front page. Best part is they have a full-time day job. So clearly the site lives up to the name of moon light work.

Hi All, Not a job post but something potentially helpful. I wrote an article that I hope can help a fair few of the DevSecOps (or hopeful DevSecOps) engineers in this channel based on my analysis of 200 job ads in this area. What is worth upskilling on, what is a load of crap, along with a bit of my opinion too. Took a lot of time, so I hope its genuinely useful.

Really happy to hear feedback either here or in the comments etc. https://jamesbeardon.substack.com/p/what-do-employers-want-in-a-devsecops

Nice write-up. I ’m a devOps engineer and adding some Sec knowledge to my skills. Most job advert i have seen for devsecops requires the applicants to be citizen as part of the requirement which sometimes is a show stopper..

Very true, I find it is the case 90% of the time, with the exception being some large organisations where they can afford to pay for the license to sponsor VISA’s.

Really Nice . Learn some security frameworks

Sure, this is probably a good example and explains it more accurately than I would.

Hello wave
Any opportunity to have a resume reviewed? Also, I’m looking for a new role as a AWS Cloud/DevOps Engineer

Hao Wang avatar

I’m not sure if it is my personal feeling, I got laid off last year and I cannot get any work with the same resume which gave me interviews in last many years. The problem may not be resume but the whole market. It may last a while (maybe a few years). May relax and learn more (I know it is easy saying than doing)
