Republic isn’t a rule-bound professional writing organisation. Rules are so yesterday.
There’s only one rule – apart from paying us (!) – and that is our clients are required to reply by email to requests for information within 24 hours.
This is so important, I’ve included it in the Republic’s terms and conditions, which every prospective client receives.
The reason is simple. We take on new clients every day and clients who don’t send us information, quickly become ‘historical’. That’s bad for us and very bad for the client.
The best resumes are written ‘on demand’, at pace with no mucking about. Digging up incomplete historical resumes isn’t what we want to do.
We have people who are desperate for help. With old, incomplete resumes constipating the works, we can’t take them on.
We also have to spend time working out what is going on, sending reminders, etc. We don’t want to do that either.
If people don’t send us information within 24 hours and explain before hand why the information will be late, I will terminate the job.
