PETALING JAYA: The public should disregard an e-mail being circulated of a job recruitment programme purportedly by Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas).
The e-mail under the heading “Petronas Job Opportunity”, urges readers to submit their personal details to a “Petronas manager”.
Doing so would enable them to obtain jobs with the giant company, it promises.
Those behind the scam pose as Petronas recruitment department personnel and charge job seekers a certain sum to secure positions in the company.
In a statement issued yesterday, the national oil company clarified that Petronas did not go into e-mail-based recruitment exercise nor did it engage third-party personnel or on-line employment agencies for such a purpose.
“The public should not respond to such e-mails,” it added.
Petronas clarified that its official online talent scouting portal iswww.discoverpetronas.com.
“Petronas does not request any payment or charges any fee for processing job applications,” it said.
