The title says it all: Don’t put your phone number on job sites. Instead, put down a newly created email specifically for jobs, and then forward it to your regular email. Here’s why:
- recruiters will spam you 24/7 from all kinds of countries, even after you’ve gotten a job.
- You will get tons of robo-dialers trying to scam you.
- Due to the annoyances of so many calls you won’t answer random phone calls (this is a bad habit).
- You’ll need to get a new phone and phone number and that phone may have already been given to recruiters from someone else.
If you do accidentally give away your phone number I recommend
