I called the company phone number and left voice mail asking for my account to be removed. I will be shocked if I hear from anyone. The "unsubscribe" link in the message is dead. The link that enables me to spend money works just fine. I replied to "Madeline" with this observation. Again, I will be very surprised if I get a personal response.
I got the same pudding in a cup message it is a rip off and they should be thrown under the jail for trying to take advantage of hard working people while they are down due to the state of the economy. This is an unethical business practice that is strongly discouraged by a number of respected Resume Writing practices. If you want to have your resume critiqued, Google the company you want to inquire with prior to submitting your request.
If you see these types of complaints move on to the next company. When you find one with no complaints it should receive a critique that has merit. A relief to not be scammed Melanie Howe supposed resume expert from JobFox , you are the "pudding in a cup. Glad I found this complaint because I was upset about the suggestion that I am "cooked meat" when I really am a vegetarian. I have not had a resume done in 10 years and when I had mine done it costs about 40 dollars, I know the years are pass and things cost more but ?
Thank you for saving money for me I really did not have. I will get my resume done over and it will be just as good but for less. By the way I think the reason it is so expensive is that they claim the people who are hired to do these are trained, they have years expertise in the job market etc They also have a check list comparing the company to two others, of course Jobfox gets all the checks!
I received a similar critique. These days we have to expect that this kind of document will be heavily computer assisted. Also, a lot of resumes do have common shortcomings. So why is everyone surprised that there is a lot of commonality among the critiques? As far as I see, it is still possible this may be a good value. The proof would be a report from someone who has purchased the resume package. I have found none on the web so far. The "Your design is very flat and cluttered. The appearance is not polished, " statement annoyed me because a professional already contributed expertise to my resume.
I found the statement "Employers want to know not only what you accomplished at your jobs, but the depth of those accomplishments. LOL I love you guys. I feel better now. I got the same obviously computer generated "critique. Obed1, it is not possible that it is valid criticism at all, since the critique was wrong on several accounts.
Check for factual errors. I provide a list of about 8 factual errors the "critiquer" used. These would have been picked up by a human. A computer program would not. Here is another one which someone provided to me. For one, the critique uses the wrong job title throughout. Also, the person is an entry-level candidate. Indeed, it appears that the "professional resume critique" is simply a canned, computer-generated response The following is the "professional resume critique" I received from JobFox.
Does it look familiar to you? XXX, to be honest with you, I think you should view this version of your resume as a work in progress. I concluded that much of the information was superficial and that in many instances it was too brief.
Your resume has an Objective instead of a Career Summary. An Objective is more for a new college grad or someone very early in their career. A Career Summary is a critical element of your resume and it should be designed to compel the hiring manager to keep reading. Responsible for the direct supervision Maintain accurate daily timecards These statements are more about what you did, not what you achieved.
Additional Issues I noticed that your resume changes emphasis patterns, which may make it difficult for some employers to follow. I liked your use of bullets to emphasize, but you probably want to consider limiting them in some areas to increase impact to the employer.
If they see too many bullets, they might find it difficult to zero in on the most important information. You want to make sure that employers can easily read and locate your name and contact information so that they can reach out to you directly when they are interested. If an employer has to hunt for your contact information, or if contact information is missing, your resume could be overlooked.
Also, be sure that your contact information appears on all pages of the resume. I have since removed my email address from their mailing list. Thank you for your postings.
The examples made things very clear I was beginning to feel inept, as though I were "Pudding in a cup". I am sadly disappointed by the company and their bad morals. Their means of getting sales by brow beating and name calling is a form of abuse! I think "jobfox" is AKA: Thanks everyone for the postings.
I was feeling a little down after reading the critique of my resume but decided to check for complaints, and thank God I found this site. I was one of the "pudding in a cup" critiqued receivers. Currently checking for legitimate resume writers at much lower cost. JOBFOX taking money from unsuspecting job hunters when we need help is such a shameful, cruddy tactic. I got one too. I got this email and it just stung.
Unemployment is difficult enough. It sickens me to know that there are people running scams like this. Do not waste any money on this site, please. Even after writing to them, they have no responded with any explanation or apology. All I will say, however, is Jobfox Resume CareerBuilder Resume Ripoff Internet Watch out for Jobfox resume services - first you will receive a canned response as to the problems with your resume and then if you make the mistake I made and actually sign up for the service you will get not much more than a canned resume that can not be used at all.
Try to get the resume writer to make the changes and they will close your file stating it is complete. Do yourself a favor and do not do business with this company - look them up on comlaintsboard. There are hundreds of pages - pages not individuals - with complaints and their ripoff experience. This complaint is not about their job search area just the resume service.
By the way the individual who runs Jobfox also runs CareerBuilder - why would he need two sites. Must be because Jobfox is a huge ripeoff. Jobfox does resume review but I didnt sign up for anything there. Stay away from Jobfox. Rob is the COO of Jobfox. Basically, what happened is in February, Rob ran out of capital. It was obvious when the Jobfox Resume Writing Staff started taking all of their vacation time together, for 2-week intervals since they were not going to get paid for the time - they minus well us it.
Knowing they would not pay their writers, Jobfox, continued assigning orders, and continued taking in new orders for unsuspecting clients. The fact that Rob As the Leader and COO authorized his team to continue taking and assigning orders to writers, knowing they would not pay the writers, is, along with the people he worked with, is conspiracy to commit fraud - which is crime.
Unfortunately, you probably will not see your money, but Rob - and possibly others - will probably get hit with criminal charges. Also, consider whether they treated you as an EMPLOYEE Even if you signed and IC agreement, if they treat you as an employee, then your are legally considered an employee and attempt to get unemployment benefits. Several us are considering filing a class action for payment.
Unfortunately, I did not do my due diligence until after I paid to have my resume re-written. They promise by e-mail and on their website to have your professionally re-written resume to you in 48 to 72 hours from time of order - I have waited over 1 week and nothing! I have already contacted my credit card company and disputed the charges. My guess is that if they ever do send me anything, it will not be any better or more professional than the one they originally critiqued.
Like I said, go in person to a real resume writer - not scammers like JobFox. Internet As many are reporting, I too have not been paid for 2 months of my work at JobFox. I was a long-term writer and provided excellent work and highly satisfied customers. I am very upset about this situation, particularly the lack of information and the fact that no one is responding to inquiries etc. Although we were all suddenly let go, it appears that the resume business is still operational..
Robert McGovern has quickly moved on with another Internet start-up, but I am yet to recieve payment for my hard work, time, and effort.
I am interested in learning about any lawsuits being filed to recover these funds. JobFox - Robert McGovern. This is the final email the writers received from Jobfox on April 9, forwarded from Sarah Sullivan, Jobfox Vendor Manager in response to a deluge of requests for payment.
I truly understand that these payments are vital to the resume writers, many of whom rely on us for their only source of income. In January of this year Jobfox was approached by a much larger company who was interested in buying our company.
Rob says he feels our pain, but things are looking pretty rosy for him. He also owns CareerBuilder and is in the process of starting another online company. Hmm, wonder where he got his grubstake for the new venture?
Could it be all the money he saved by not paying his writers? Owes many thousands, but has defaulted. Rob McGovern told all contracted resume writers that he was taken in by a rogue company while trying to sell Jobfox.
He said he would keep us updated on the situation and assured us he would pay. I found out today that Jobfox has defaulted on their payments of thousands to resume writers who wrote resumes for Jobfox clients. Jobfox took the money that should have been paid to resume writers. Now McGovern is starting another company called Cobrain. It is not right! If there is a way to be part of a class action I will be on the top of the list.
Careers booster ordered a resume and cover letter package Good evening,My story started when I was looking for resume writers to improve my resume. I found this company online claiming that they have good writers.
I paid dollars for resume and cover letters. When I received the product, I noticed it was not a professional job, nice wording but the content was so empty. I tried to contact the writers and CEO on the websites and only then I found out that the writers are fake profiles. One of the writers lives in Oslo and he is not a writer and he is a photographer. I asked for a refund because it was a fraud and false advertisement.
These fake profiles all claim that they have twenty years of experience. Nothing but false promises and redirect of blame Internet I hired Don Goodman and Get the Job resume service based on the positive search results I found only to realize later these are all created by Don himself.
This service is completely useless and a waste of your money. First they send you a 15 page - yes 15 page - document to fill out with your job history, skills, respnosibilites etc.
It takes forever to complete. You then reurn it to them and wait Finally you get a email from your personal writer to set up a call to discuss the document. The call basically consist of the writer reading the document back to you which gives the impression that they did not take the time beforehand to review prior to the call.
After the call they say they will get your the first draft in a few days. Mine took 5 days The draft was pretty bad - the writer tried to cram everything i put on the initial document into the resume and make it fit 2 pages.
I gave feedback and waited for a revision.. The 2nd revision was just as poor so I emailed Don and demanded a new writer or a refund. He said he would write it himself and basically gave me the same resume with new formatting and a few bullet points. I spent a few days trying to clean the resume up and make it comprehenible and started to apply to positions I again asked for a rewirte or refund. The service is horrible and amateur at best.
Bunch of scam artist. Got The Job Resume Service.

Annemarie langley, British ColumbiaCanada. They basically slap together a generic resume highlight some key words and charge you for it.

I am unable to process a refund for you. I had wanted Telecommute: Data Etnry or Typing. It was not 72 hours before I submitted the complaint. I tried calling, but they never answer.
This came from one of their job mail: I am not alone. They keep promising updates. They overwhelm their full-ime, in house staff so that supposedly they can start paying the contracted workers. They even offer LinkedIn recommendations. Meanwhile, there has not been an update in over a month, not even a partial payment, and no recommendations given. Com -- they are so nice --but are clearly just trying to make a sale. They use negative info about their competition to justify super-high prices for their service--and well, it SOUNDS sensible-- Pay more, get better results..
I showed it to several professionals --and their advice was basically WOW, get your money back.. My attempts to contact GetTheJob. Com -- who had been previously sooooo helpful when they wanted to make a sale resulted in a mix of long stretches of messages unanswered-- to half-hearted offers to re-write the resume-- one of which I pursued--which resulted in virtually NO CHANGE at all.. Honestly, I believe the owner farmed my assignment out to someone who speaks English as a second language.
I have never felt so scammed in my entire life. Be smarter than I was. Their website is not that good looking-- Do you really think the resume they create will be? TheLadders resume writing service Internet after resume writer sent me draft of resume my name was not even spelled correctly. I replied to the e-mail address from where the report was sent from. All I ever got back were confirmations that e-mail was received.
I call up and get the attendant to reluctantly have the resume writer contact me. He writes that he never got any e-mails. Of course this e-mail is from a totally different e-mail address. What a waste of time and poor excuse for customer service.
Run away as fast as you can from The Ladders. The Resume Writing Guild, resumewritingguild. Orlando Florida This service says on their website, No other resume writing service guarantees their first draft will be free of errors or your money back!
Not only did I get a resume full of errors, but this company refused to make good on their guarantee stating that I could not get my money back. I needed a resume rewritten so I hired this company. I very clearly specified upfront what type of position I am seeking, even going so far as to forward an actual job description of my ideal job.
Yet for some reason that was ignored in favor of what Tracy had in mind instead. She had a redundant objective and profile summary, and the dang resume was four pages long.
