    Location: Italy (Europe)

    Something very similar happened to me regarding Berlingua:


    They sent me an email saying they had no vacancies in Spain, but that their school in Milan, Italy, would contact me. All of this striked me as very odd, since I never applied to work at Berlingua.

    A few days later, I received a job description from MT Languages, as follows:

    The whole description is a giant red flag.

    I did send them my resume, out of curiosity, an even had an interview! It lasted 6 min and 33 seconds, and it ended with the "recruiter" complimenting my English way too much, while his sounded a bit off.


    I've added some screenshots I took from the e-mails, where you'll notice how cleverly and on plain sight they disguise their e-mail adresses.
