There are many scams and unscrupulous practices around getting hired. There are fake job postings in order to acquire valuable personal information. There are fee-to-hire services where you pay upfront in order to find a job. You could run into "executive management" or "executive recruitment" companies that charge thousands of dollars for no help whatsoever. Unscrupulous people are constantly trying to sell the desperate or the naive "exclusive" or "inside" information about where the jobs are, or how to get employed in a particular industry, such as on cruise ships.
