Protect yourself from job scams.

Here is how to protect yourself from job scams, which can appear like legitimate work opportunities. For example, a scammer could pretend to work for a Valent North America (VNA) company (Valent BioSciences, Valent U.S.A., Pace International, Mycorrhizal Applications, McLaughlin Gormley King (MGK), FBSciences) and attempt to gain access to your personal information. Be aware and remember these tips:

  • Valent Group Companies will never ask for money or fees at any point during the interview process. If you are asked to send money as part of your interaction, do not send money. Additionally, we will never ask you for your bank account information or any other type of sensitive information, such as your Social Security number during the interview process.
  • Valent Group Companies will never interview you solely over email or text. We may reach out to you digitally to schedule interviews, but we will always conduct our interviews via phone or video chat (i.e., Zoom, Microsoft Teams, etc.) If we extend an offer to you, we will always deliver it to you via phone or video chat.
  • Valent Group Companies posts all legitimate job openings on our careers website. You may come across job postings on various job boards. For your safety, please verify a VNA role exists and apply directly on our website at:
