Online Scam Alert: We understand that there is an active online scam targeting job seekers at VMware and other companies.
While the scammers use different techniques and different social media tools, some common aspect of the scam is to offer a position
and send a check to be deposited into the job seeker’s account. While VMware has taken steps to stop this scam, once one route
is shut down, another pops up. If you are interested in a position at VMware, the best source to turn to is the VMware Career page.
All open positions are posted there. And all applications for a position at VMware must be submitted through our Careers page.
