Q: What are Flexible Work Arrangements?
A: Numerous jobs in our database are open to flexible work arrangements which can be ideal for the GajGal community of working mothers wanting to get back into the workforce and still maintain "the right level" of work life balance.

Employers can specify whether a job is strictly Full time, or whether they prefer or would consider Part time, Job share, Flexible work hours, Compressed Work Week, work from home, and location independent options. A search or match might be a perfect match on both your skills and the flexible arrangements required, however if you are not finding a perfect match in terms of flexibility, it is important to remember that when an Employer is open to considering flexible work arrangements they might also be open to discussing and negotiating a flexible agreement that best fits Employer and Employee requirements even if those were not the ones defined in the initial Job posting.

Q: How do I know if a job posting I received via an email is legitimate?
A: GajGal is dedicated to providing the safest possible environment for you to search and apply for jobs. Be wary of email spoofs and phishing. Both practices concern email where the "from" address has been forged to make it appear as if the message came from somewhere, or someone, other than the actual source.
Because all companies are susceptible to these scams, you could receive an email that appears to come from a GajGal email address or that falsely represents GajGal. These emails are usually sent from a general spam email list and not from email addresses stored in a GajGal database. These emails do not come from, or through, GajGal.
Here are some ways to prevent being lured in by fraudulent email:

Disregard all emails that offer employment opportunities involving money transfers.

• Verify the legitimacy of the email, company, and job opportunity.
• If the email contains a link, don't use it. Go to the company's website via another method.
• If the email includes a job opportunity, the job should be listed on the company's website. Call the company directly, using its publicly listed phone number.
• Research the company by conducting an internet search or by using the Better Business Bureau.
• Do not share personal information unless you are confident the other party is who they claim to be. The following information is not collected by GajGal and should not be included on your resume:
     o Social Security number
     o Driver license number
     o Bank account information
     o Credit card information
     o Passwords

Protect yourself from employment-opportunity fraud by looking for these warning signs:

• Email-only communication
• Overly-simplified requirements/qualifications
• Ability to work from home or only for 2-3 hours a day
• Broken English, spelling mistakes, or grammar errors
• Requests for bank account information or Social Security number
• Management of monetary transactions
• Repackaging or reshipping from your own home
• Compensation based on using funds you withdrew from a banking account

Be wary of any email that asks you to download a tool or update your account or access agreement.
GajGal will never send an email requesting that you take these steps or ask you for your account username and password.
The precautions listed above will help you evaluate whether an email or job opportunity is legitimate. When in doubt, follow your instincts - if it looks too good to be true, chances are it is.
To learn more about email scams, see the Federal Trade Commission's "How Not to Get Hooked by a Phishing Scam," and the Anti-Phishing Working Group.

If you receive an email that appears to be from GajGal, and are concerned about its legitimacy, please Contact Us. Providing us with a detailed description of the email will help us prevent similar fraud in the future.
