Everyone has an excuse for breaking deadlines:
The dog died. Car accident. Sick uncle. Dog ate it (same dog). Computer failure. Forgot to save. Wedding anniversary. Alien invasion. We’ve heard them all.
I once had a senior administrator who broke a deadline because he thought I could write his ten-year career history off the top of my head. Miracle worker!
Once you’re terminated, we will never work with you again.
We’re former senior recruiters, journalists and professional writers, who work closely with recruiters and employers. Breaking deadlines kills reputations.
After the client has agreed to the terms and conditions, we require all work to arrive by email at Republic on time (or before).
Break deadlines without notification and we terminate immediately. Why?
- It shows the client isn’t professional.
- It shows he or she can’t manage their time.
- It shows getting a job is low on their list of priorities.
- It disrespects the writer.
- It attacks our business model.
- It wastes time we could have spent helping people who are desperate to get a job.
Break a deadline and you’re history.
