NOPE! BIG RED FLAG! The information on both sides of your card is enough to put some nasty charges on your account. People interviewing at the bank should absolutely know better. The person who asked ...

The first thing you need to do is contact the manager and director and let them know the problem. This may not help but it's well worth the try. If the job is doable remotely then they can probably ...

Sending a photo of my bank account card to the future employer

The request from the bank is NOT scam. Seems like the OP is talking about a so called "Debit-Bankomatkarte" which indeed have a CVV. But I still think that the employer in question did not mean that ...

I accepted a job at first but rhen turned it down. How do I handle this on my resume?

Your resume should only contain job experience. As you never worked there you don't need to put it at all on the resume as it's not "experience" at that job.

Is it ethical/professional to continue with the interviews? In my opinion, the point of no return is when you accept an offer. Since you have accepted an offer and are working through the notice ...

Internship director recinded offer after "my poor communication", despite having already accepted it. Is this a red flag?

My question is whether or not this is as big of a red flag as I see it? If so, should I accept his offer if he reconsiders? Yes, this is a huge red flag. He said he has already given your slot to ...
