IndiGo on Tuesday cautioned candidates against fake job offers doing rounds on social media. The airline said in a statement that certain people are misusing the brand name and names of IndiGo employees to demand money in exchange for interviews, jobs, or training.
"IndiGo, through its creatives on anti-fake jobs campaign across social media and website is raising awareness of how certain people claiming to represent IndiGo are misusing the brand name and the names of IndiGo employees, demanding money in exchange for interviews, jobs, or trainings," the airline stated.
IndiGo added that the airline does not charge any money for conducting interviews, providing jobs, or imparting trainings on joining.
IndiGo "strictly" advises to report the matter to the police if someone asks for money and promises a job at the airline. IndiGo is also taking appropriate actions for cases that get reported, along with spreading awareness, it stated.
The airline's director and chief executive officer Ronojoy Dutta stated, “We have been cautioning job seekers through awareness campaigns via advisories and commercials. We believe that as the market leader, it is our responsibility to identify and control such malpractices that not just impact IndiGo but also other companies in the sector. We have been working in close collaboration with the law enforcement department to identify these offenders with success in the past. We hope to put an end to this menace with support from the police department and awareness amongst people".
