Responsabilités

Du fait du caractère gratuit de la rubrique emploi de notre site, Radio Okapi n'a pas toujours la capacité de modérer toutes les annonces publiées. Nous attirons donc votre attention sur le fait que Radio Okapi ne peut pas être tenue pour responsable des annonces publiées de bonne foi qui s’avéreraient de nature frauduleuse.

Nous essayons autant que possible de vérifier toutes les offres d'emploi qui nous parviennent. Cependant, soyez vigilant avant de candidater et refusez systématiquement tout "employeur" vous demandant de l'argent pour votre dossier de candidature
