In the last seven weeks I’ve had three very angry SA male clients working in heavy industry and the mining sector, complain bitterly about their experience at a ‘so called local’ dodgy resume writing franchise in ‘Adelaide’.
This franchise ranks high on Adelaide Google Maps yet it’s an empty office.
The clients sent their resumes and cover letters to me for a rewrite.
The work of this franchise is so bad, so lacking in results, so over-written and ungrammatical, it’s a travesty.
This ‘so called Adelaide’ business, advised one client to not include his recent casual work, even though that was crucial, and goes directly against recruitment best practice.
They ignored the client’s ten years of quantifiable achievements, replacing them with standard position description duties, which were cut and paste jobs.
They confused tickets with licences. Their summary – a critical part of the resume – was meaningless jibber, cut and pasted from someone else’s resume.
The resume was three pages of crap, which, with an equally meaningless and poorly written generic cover letter, cost the client $300.00.
The damage this does can be calculated by their client not getting a job, not being able to pay the mortgage or rent or put food on the table.
They are destructive parasites who must be eliminated.
In future, I will direct these angry clients to the ACCC.
