Romania: The perfect job – a one-way illusion
The technological evolution and the multitude of possibilities that the online space offers have an important influence in the area of crime related to trafficking in persons. Technology is used by traffickers in all stages of crime, including recruiting, controlling and exploiting victims. Accessing a job is done in most cases in the online space, through job platforms. In this context, it is very important that users check the veracity of a job offer in advance and inform themselves about the dangers that can be hidden behind ads that may seem perfect at first glance.
ANITP together with OLX Romania implemented the online campaign "The perfect job – a one-way illusion" aimed at improving the self-protection capacity of the main target group (people looking for a job through online platforms) and the general public regarding the dangers and risk situations to which they may be exposed by accepting a job offer without prior information. Also, the activities of the campaign aimed at transmitting a set of useful tips and recommendations in the process of looking for a job and analyzing different ads and offers.
The prevention campaign was implemented between 20.03 and 16.10.2020.
