Recruiting Fraud

It has come to our attention that there have been recent fraudulent recruiting scams and phony job ads posted which did not originate from Cobalt International Energy. We take recruitment fraud very seriously and offer the following information to help reduce these occurrences:

  • Cobalt International Energy will only accept profile information, applications and résumés through this Careers page and we will never ask an applicant to supply personal information through a third-party recruiting website.
  • Cobalt International Energy’s emails always end in "@cobaltintl.com." Any email styled with "Cobalt" using additional letters in the domain name, or a different format, did not originate from Cobalt and should be considered fraudulent.
  • We will never request an applicant to email information to an email address not ending in "@cobaltintl.com.”
  • URLs that do not begin with “www.cobaltintl.com” are not official Cobalt International Energy websites and should not be used to submit any type of personal or recruiting-related information. 
  • Cobalt International Energy will never require applicants to submit money to pay for travel, immigration or other fees or expenses.

If you experience any of the above, or have doubts regarding the legitimacy of an email communication, website, or any other relevant issue relating to Cobalt International Energy, please email your concern or question to: recruiting@cobaltintl.com.
