Everyone has an excuse for breaking writing deadlines.
The dog died. Car accident. Sick uncle. Dog ate it (same dog). Computer failure. Wedding anniversary. Alien invasion. We’ve heard them all.
I had an executive in South Australia break two deadlines without emailing or calling to explain why.
We gave him 72 hours to do a 20 minute task. Job terminated.
Oddly, he was very quick to supply his bank details for the refund.
We run a deadline-focused business and we’re trying to get you a job.
We’re former senior recruiters, journalists and professional writers, who work closely with recruiters and employers.
Once you’re terminated, we will never work with you again.
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 or writers.
- 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.
