Recruitment fraud notice

Protect yourself against recruitment fraud

Online recruitment scams have increased in frequency recently, impacting applicants and employers. These scammers, or imposter recruiters, may post fraudulent job openings and contact job seekers with fake job offers. They may even conduct fraudulent interviews and attempt to obtain money or personal information from the applicant. See the FTC guidance on protecting yourself online when it comes to job searching.

Please see below for information on ASML’s recruiting practices, so you know what to expect from the official ASML process, and can also identify potential fraud.

ASML recruiting practices

  • ASML requires that applicants apply directly through our ASML career site prior to an onsite or virtual video interview.
  • ASML may contact you via phone call, email, LinkedIn or via a Microsoft Teams meeting. We do not use any other virtual interview platforms. ASML will contact you live to speak, not just over chat or text.
  • ASML will never ask a candidate for payment of any kind as part of the hiring or onboarding process. ASML will also never send a check prior to starting employment.
  • ASML will never ask for any personal or private information until you have accepted an offer.
  • ASML only sends email from the domain (ASML employees will never use their personal email addresses for communication, such as Gmail, Hotmail etc.).
  • ASML’s talent exploration questionnaire is not available online and there are no practice tests that reflect the actual questionnaire’s format and content.

How to recognize recruitment fraud on LinkedIn

Imposters may create fake LinkedIn profiles that resemble the profile of an ASML employee. Please do your due diligence to validate the legitimacy of these accounts.

  • Many LinkedIn imposters use the same profile names and profile pictures on different accounts.
  • Lack of real personal information.
  • Low number of connections within the organization for which they claim to work.
  • Low frequency in their activity section, not liking or sharing any posts.
  • No recommendations given or received.

What to do if you suspect fraud

If you suspect recruitment fraud, do not communicate further with the imposter recruiter and do not provide sensitive personal information. Contact ASML and share supporting information, including copies of any correspondence you may have had with the suspected imposter. If ASML confirms a recruitment contact is fraudulent, you can report it to the FTC or FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center.
