High-Tech Bridge JOB SCAM

The company High-Tech Bridge (https://htbridge.com, a firm based in Geneva, Switzerland) is posting the same job on its career page and various job boards on a permanent basis. They ask applicants to send their resume to an email address: hr@***.com. The first interview takes place during which the interviewer tells the candidate that if the feedback is positive. The next day the applicant receives an email in bad English from the “HR” rep asking to design and send a “business plan” (for the next 6 month for High-Tech Bridge business) as part the recruitment process. If the applicant asks questions, he/she is told that this is a test that will be used to select candidates. If the applicant decides to design and send his/her business plan, he will never hear again from High-Tech Bridge. If applicants want to get a feedback and contact recruiters or executives of the company, they will receive almost immediately a negative answer for their application. And if the applicant insists, he then receives an email, coming sometimes from the CEO, telling her/him that the position had just been fulfilled and this is the reason why she/he received negative answer. The CEO will also assure the candidate that all his data and business plan have been removed and won’t be used by the company (something impossible to verify). When the candidate checks the company website days, weeks and months later, the same job is still advertised online and High-Tech Bridge is still taking ”applications” from candidates. Most certainly they continue to demand free work and free consulting in the form of business plans from unsuspicious applicants. I was one of these naïve applicants and I made the mistake to apply there and send them a business plan that they now can use for free. This is why I want to warn any other job seeker, professionals on the market. Don’t apply there and don’t send them any business plan. There is no job. This is a scam.
