Trusting Beacon Hill

In every business, there are spammers, which is why Beacon Hill works hard to protect job seekers by explaining how imposters work. Companies and individuals that impersonate Beacon Hill tend to:

  • Ask for any protected information (i.e., age, gender, etc.) or tell you theirs
  • Ask for personal information over an informal or unsecured channel, such as Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts, WhatsApp or Telegram Messenger
  • Ask you to complete actions like buying a gift card, purchasing your own job equipment, sending money upfront, or other similar financial transactions
  • Ask you to reach out to an email address that is not connected to our company’s domain

So is Beacon Hill legit? Yes, the real Beacon Hill is, but be careful out there. The best way to stay safe and look at our roles is on our website.

At Beacon Hill, we're all about providing you with everything you need to follow your professional path. Ready to get started? Find a role and apply.
