Resume and Career Services is invested in your success and stands behind our program. Our goal is to educate and empower you, the job seeker, to be your own best advocate in your career journey. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, and each job search is unique.
However, we understand that time is money, and we want you to succeed through our program and in your career. To that end, we guarantee that you will receive at least one interview within one month of completing the Resume and Career Services program. If you have not secured at least one interview in that time, you can contact email@example.com to request a refund, not to exceed two months of membership fees at the rate you paid.
Please understand that it can take six months or more for an executive-level candidate to secure a new position after launching a job search. Therefore, this guarantee only covers your ability to secure an interview, not to land a new position.
To qualify for this money-back guarantee, you must have:
- Completed all coursework, which includes six courses and all lessons within those courses.
- Had your resume and LinkedIn profile professionally reviewed and critiqued by a member of the Resume and Career Services team.
- Communicated directly with a member of the Resume and Career Services team for a one-on-one consultation.
- Applied for ten positions for which you are qualified.*
Once we have received your request for a refund, a member of our team will review your request and provide a response within seven business days. If approved, you will receive a refund via credit card chargeback within 7–10 business days.
*Positions for which you are qualified match your stated career goal on the resume and LinkedIn profile you submitted for review to Resume and Career Services’ staff. Additionally, your qualifications must meet 90% of the requirements stated in the job description, and you must submit your tracking worksheet when requesting a refund.
A refund can only be requested once. If a member chooses to return to the program after receiving a refund, s/he does so at his/her own risk. There is no science to a job search and, as such, Resume and Career Services cannot guarantee results.
