Every now and then we get a client who says, after we have started work on their resume, ‘Put this on hold and I’ll get back to you later.’
They are related to those who make an enquiry and then never send their old resume for a quote. They’re not ready to work with a professional writer and will break deadlines.
I’ve vented my ire here on the blog about deadline breakers and I have changed Republic’s terms and conditions, to terminate time wasters on the spot.
But I haven’t given the context on why we won’t put a resume ‘on hold’ or why not sending an old resume for a quote or why missing deadlines are verboten.
For every unskilled or semi-skilled job in Adelaide and NSW, there are between 200-300 applicants.
For skilled professional positions (depending on the industry), there are about 75-100 applications for every job.
And many of those applicants use Republic Resumes and other professional writing businesses to write or upgrade their documents. We now have a waiting list of four clients.
Time wasters take up valuable time which could have gone to a desperate and worthy job seeker.
We are at the beginning of the greatest recession in Australia’s history. In SA, it’s a labour market Depression.
