I have never before in my life been so motivated to complain about a company ! WOW.. I really believed in Don Goodman and his whole "We are the only resume writing company who will actually deliver" ploy-- When you first contact GotThejob.Com -- they are so nice --but are clearly just trying to make a sale. Their website [which, in retrospect, is rather sloppily formatted--THAT* should've been a major indicator !]--- goes to great lengths to de-market their competition--- and is quite compelling.. They use negative info about their competition to justify super-high prices for their service--and well, it SOUNDS sensible-- Pay more, get better results..
HA ! The resume I received from them was AWFUL-- Not just mediocre-- but AWFUL-- I counted 6 misspelled words, 11 typos--and the format was BASIC-- Worse yet, the wording itself was often borderline incoherent and did NOTHING to accent my skills and experience. I showed it to several professionals --and their advice was basically "WOW, get your money back.."
My attempts to contact GetTheJob.Com -- who had been previously sooooo helpful when they wanted to make a sale--- resulted in a mix of long stretches of messages unanswered-- to half-hearted offers to re-write the resume-- one of which I pursued--which resulted in virtually NO CHANGE at all.. I was dumbfounded and thought that perhaps--they just sent me the original file again by mistake-- until I realized FOUR WORDS HAD BEEN EDITED [and one was an ADDED word-- spelled INCORRECTLY]-- It was as if -- someone spent 1 minute doing anything to call it "REVISED"--and that person was rushed and overloaded w/ work...
Honestly, I believe the owner farmed my assignment out to someone who speaks English as a second language. I have never felt so scammed in my entire life. Be smarter than I was. Their website is not that good looking-- Do you really think the resume they create will be ?
