This website features a blog with several useful articles that puts job seekers on the more advantageous edge providing them with every necessary information to complete the ‘Get the dream job’ process. Many articles on this website teach job searchers how to correctly answer many weird and intimidating interview questions and win the recruiter’s interest. Those articles challenge anyone who has an interview in view to rise mentally and become a better interviewee.
The article titled ‘Why is my job search failing’ gave me a lot of insights when I read it and changed my perspective on my job hunt mission. I frequently visit the blog to sharpen my mind and learn more about what to do to get that high-paying job I have always desired.
You will also find relevant career advice on the website that can help you sustain a healthy and focused career. This is not only for job seekers. It’s also good for employees to be the best they can in their respective offices and build a lasting career.
Quality of the Service
This website offers excellent customer relations service. It features multiple communication options on the contact page, including the ‘Book a Call’ button that allows you to speak directly with the company and a couple of chat options like Messenger Box and WhatsApp. You can also contact the company through the email address or mailing address. And if you are too busy to do that, you can simply fill the short form, write your inquiries and send. You get feedback in no time.
This writing firm is available 24hours. They ensure that they provide every means of communication available to enable everyone to have easy access, no matter what.
I have tried every of the available communication methods on the website, and the experience was superb. When I book a call, the person who talked with me was very warm, polite, and listened patiently. What an excellent customer support service.
Quality of the Product
What I got as the final copy of my CV was far below my expectation. I specifically asked and expected a great CV, but instead, they went off the radar, telling another story about me, making me who I’m not. Ideally, a CV should describe my career journey to fit the recruiters’ expectations, but this lacked focus and clarity. It failed to show how I have grown in my career over the years. Unsurprisingly, I have not been invited for an interview in the last two months.
The first draft came within the agreed time. Though the subsequently revised copies were delayed, I can’t hold them up to that. The writer complained that he was up to his neck, and that’s quite understandable.
The customer support service and the website interface are fair enough. However, I will not rate their service ‘A’ because the final product was far below average. It required many revisions, including typo errors on the CV and the LinkedIn profile. There were also too many generic terms on my LinkedIn profile, which rather hid my skills and professional identity. I would not use this service again.
