Hello I am new here lived in New York with my 2 kids and looking for a teaching job. I applied online but can't get response from them. I have received an email yesterday stated that they are going to give me an opportunity an engineering firm. They want me to fill a form with my all details including my bank details etc. Should I trust them and provide all info without any interview.

<<Emphasis added.>> Is the second "they" (engineering job) totally unrelated to the first (teaching job), or are they the same (e.g., the same recruitment agency handling both)? Regardless, the only personal information you should be providing on a job application form is name, address, phone, and email (along with educational and work experience, of course). No social security numbers, no bank accounts, no credit card accounts, no income statements, ... Those are indicative of a scam.

Once you are hired they will need personal information in order to do tax withholding, paycheck direct deposit, insurance (maybe) etc. Until then, just leave those spaces blank. As @CrysPhys says, even having those on the "form" is kind of suspicious.

EDIT: ...says the guy who has worked for the same company for 40 years. I have no idea what is "normal" on an application these days.

You should apply to the companies job portal where you can find relevant jobs according to your needs. And you can also try these websites LinkedIn, CareerBuilder, YoursVacancy and Monster.com. You have to create a profile add or create your CV then apply.

More info about you would be needed for more useful guidance. So far, all we have is that you live in NY, have two kids, and are looking for a teaching or engineering job.

E.g.,
* Is it NY state or NY City? Do you need to stay put, or are you willing to relocate?
* What are your educational background and work experience so far?
* Any unusual circumstances (e.g., did you drop out of the work force for an extended period to raise a family and are now re-entering the work force)?
