Please be aware of possible scams that may come through various online job boards.  Some due diligence can help you to determine the validity about an offer or posting.  You will never receive a legitimate job offer if you have not met with or spoken to the employer.  A legitimate employer will never ask for money, bank information, or a social security number on an application.
