SECTION 6 – REFUND POLICY
At Resume Pilots, our top priority is to consistently deliver excellent documents and a highly-personalized client experience.
Upon receiving your order, we allocate time in our schedule for your phone consultation and the writing process to ensure we deliver quality document(s) within the timeframe promised.
As such, all sales are final and non-refundable. We also reserve the right to cancel a client’s project and provide a full refund at any time, for any reason.
Writing Project Holds
To help us with capacity planning, your project will be placed on hold if you do not return your completed questionnaire and schedule your phone consultation within 30 days of placing your order, which may result in a longer turnaround time once you reach out to start your project.
If our published pricing changes while your project is on hold (between 30-90 days of placing your order), you will be liable for the price difference, which must be paid prior to restarting your project.
If your project remains on hold for over 90 days, your order will be considered forfeited and completed.
Career Coaching Services
Any career coaching sessions purchased as part of a pre-paid coaching package expire six months after the purchase date, and any unused sessions after this date will be non-refundable.
Any completed career coaching sessions purchased as part of a career coaching package or on an ad hoc basis are non-refundable. Any unused career coaching sessions purchased as part of a pre-paid coaching package will be refunded if the client and/or coach decide to terminate the coaching process for any reason.
Career Transitions Service
Coaching services included as part of the career transitions service or outplacement services are non-refundable and expire six months from the commencement of services.
SECTION 7 – WRITING SERVICES
Writing is a creative, personalized service, and we devote a significant amount of time to ensuring that you receive well-written, high-quality documents. However, we do rely on your input.
Our writing process is – by nature – iterative: you are expected to collaborate with your writer as required after placing your order by providing all necessary information, responding to communications, and providing constructive and detailed feedback on your draft(s) in a timely manner.
Writing and Editing Process
Please review the following outline of our writing process and related terms, which enable us to deliver quality documents on time:
1) Place your order
As soon as you place your order through our website, you will immediately receive 1) a payment confirmation email and 2) an email outlining the information we need from you to get started on your project.
2) Send us your questionnaire and relevant documents
Please send us your completed questionnaire and any supporting information requested at least 24 hours before your initial phone consultation.
Because we need time to thoroughly review your documents and prepare for your phone consultation, we reserve the right to cancel your scheduled consultation if we do not receive the requested information 24 hours in advance.
Please take the time to thoroughly fill out the questionnaire and prepare for your phone consultation so that we have ample information to work with during the writing process.
While we will guide the conversation to help you identify key accomplishments and prepare high-quality documents on your behalf, we expect that you will fully collaborate with us and provide us with the source material we need to do so.
3) Schedule your initial consultation
We will review your questionnaire and pair you with a writer within 1 business day of receiving your source documents.
Your writer will also reach out to schedule your phone consultation within 1 business day. We aim to schedule your phone consultation as soon as possible (within 1 week), but if you have a strict deadline, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us to confirm availability before ordering.
4) Review your first draft(s)
We will send your first draft(s) via email within the timeframe promised and allow you to provide feedback and request any changes.
Once you receive your initial draft(s), you must provide thorough and specific feedback on requested changes within 10 business days via email or a 30-minute follow-up phone consultation.
If you do not request revisions or provide any feedback on a given document within 10 business days, that portion of your project will be considered finalized and will no longer be eligible for revisions. At this stage, we will also complete and send you any outstanding deliverables, if applicable. Any additional changes requested after a project component has been finalized will be subject to our hourly consulting fee.
While we do our best to accommodate reasonable extensions when extenuating circumstances arise, our writers work with multiple clients and must manage workflow accordingly.
You are permitted two rounds of revisions: we recommend addressing all major content and formatting changes during the first round and any minor changes during the second round. We will deliver your updated draft(s) within the turnaround times outlined in the section below.
After the second round of revisions, any major changes (including but not limited to adding new positions and/or additional content and making major design changes) will be subject to our hourly consulting fee.
Please note that additional work required to add substantial new information that you did not provide on your questionnaire, during your phone consultation, or before the start of the writing process may also be subject to our hourly consulting fee.
We strive to ensure that all projects are completely free of errors. However, you are responsible for thoroughly proofreading all final drafts. We cannot be held liable for any losses incurred as result of errors, omissions, false statements, or inaccuracies.
The turnaround times provided are from the point at which we receive all of the source information we need to prepare your documents, including but not limited to your prior career documents, completed questionnaire, and the completion of your phone consultation.
Our standard turnaround time for first drafts of resumes and cover letters is 5 business days. Once you provide feedback, please allow 2 business days for any revisions.
If you need a faster turnaround, you must add one of our rush services to your order: the Next-Day Rush Service turnaround time is 1 business day (allow 1 business day for any revisions). The Two-Day Express Service turnaround time is two business days (allow 1 business day for any revisions).
We cannot be held liable for any losses incurred as a result of our failure to meet expected turnaround times. We reserve the right to extend turnaround times as needed and will provide notice of such changes via email.
Hourly Consulting Rate
Any services that go beyond the scope of work outlined in the “Writing and Editing Process” section or any bespoke services will be billed at our hourly consulting rate of $100 per hour.
We will obtain your permission before commencing any work billed at an hourly rate.
We save time in our calendar to prepare for and hold your phone consultation, and no shows impact our ability to serve other clients. As such, we require a 24-hour notice if you are no longer able to attend your session for any reason.
If you do not provide us with advance notice and do not make yourself available for your call within 15 minutes of the scheduled start time, you will be subject to a $100 rescheduling fee.
SECTION 8 – CAREER COACHING SERVICES
We hold time in our calendar to prepare for and hold any career coaching sessions that are provided on an ad hoc basis or as part of a career coaching package, the Career Transitions service, or outplacement package.
You must notify us at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled career coaching session if you are no longer able to attend for any reason. If you do not notify us and miss a session or are more than 15 minutes late, your session will be considered complete and is non-refundable.
SECTION 9 – CAREER TRANSITIONS SERVICE
The Career Transitions service includes both writing services and career coaching services. All policies in Section 7 and Section 8 above also apply to writing and coaching services provided as part of the Career Transitions service.
SECTION 10 – OUTPLACEMENT SERVICES
Refer to contract.
SECTION 11 – ACCURACY OF BILLING AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION
We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us for any reason. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household, or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address.
If we feel that your requested services may require more resources than standard (such as with projects including but not limited to academic CVs that tend to be much longer than standard resumes), we will refuse your order and contact you at the email address provided at the time of your order. If possible, we will provide you with a custom quote for our services. Alternatively, we may offer to bill such services at our hourly consulting rate.
In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers, or distributors.
You agree to provide current, complete, and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made at our store. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and credit card numbers and expiration dates so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed.
All of our prices are fully inclusive of all global consumption and sales taxes such as VAT and GST that we may be legally obligated to apply to our customers based on their physical locations. We are not responsible for foreign transaction fees or other fees that may be assessed by your financial institution or credit card company.
