How To Protect Yourself?

Learn about the things that you can do to protect yourself against security threats and scams.

Create a tougher password

Use a strong, unique password for your account on this job board website.

Reset your password

If you know or even just think that someone may have unauthorized access to your MJCC account, then you should immediately change your secure password.

Scan for problems and update software frequently

Run antivirus software on your device and keep your operating system and all software updated.


Second Factor Authentication, also referred to as 2FA, allows you to set up an additional level (or factor) of security on your accounts, in addition to your password.

This is usually something that you can prove that you own and control, such as your phone, or your email account.

Adding one more step of authenticating your identity makes it harder for an attacker to access your data.

2FA drastically reduces the chances of fraud, data loss, or identity theft.
