How to Identify Fraudulent Emails Posing as HKS Hiring Representatives


Fraudsters use email to collect your personal information and use it for nefarious purposes. Sadly, an increasing number of these scam artists have been posing as hiring representatives from HKS to prey on job applicants. If you are applying for a job with HKS, please take a moment to verify that you are sending your information to an official HKS hiring representative at @hksinc.com.

Emails sent from HKS hiring managers always end in @hksinc.com

While we are doing what we can to fight email fraud, there are also a few things you can do to identify fraudulent emails and keep your personal information safe and secure:

  • The only way to apply for a job at HKS is on our website, here:
  • Be wary of clicking on ads for HKS jobs. Phishers post fraudulent ads to snag potential job-seekers.
  • If you are contacted by anyone using an e-mail that ends in anything but @hksinc.com, then it is a scam.
  • We only conduct interviews in person, by phone or on Zoom. The meeting request will come from one of our hiring representatives, whose e-mails always end in @hksinc.com. We do not use Skype for interviews.
