e-resume.us Complaint - Free resume - (free) resume

Review by cat2 on 2007-02-11
The words below take people to a web sight that is not free and people get ripped off. Why does it say FREE Resume Builder. Then after putting all the work into the resume they ask for money. After you give your credit card number they again ask for money which I thought I had already given and with one click of the mouse I owe twice as much. They really need to let people know off the top that this isn't free. And not add more stuff after they get your credit card number. I would appreciate it if they would credit my account. They have refused. The company sets a poor example!!!! Below is their advertisement.

As soon as they asked for your credit card info you should have known that "FREE" was not real. You should have left the site immediately.

I followed their links and went right to the free resume help site at Monster.com with tips for writing a good resume. You just got led to a pay site - the request for a CC numbers should have been the tip-off - no one asked youo for that number unless they plan to use it.

On the web, the word 'free' usually has one of several meanings. 1) This game is free! (...and contains spyware which will really screw up your computer). 2) It's free to sign up! (...but if you expect any decent features, it'll cost you!). 3) Free PS3! (...if you sign up for 500 special offers that will, in the end, cost you more than if you'd just bought the stupid system outright). In short, beware the word 'free'.

If you want a "Free" resume use the template in MS Word. Sorry, but just about anything that is free, is worth exactly what it cost. Nothing. Now sarcasm aside, I would recommend that you use Google to search resumes in the occupation that you are interested. These will offer you a number of real life examples to work from, as you create your own resume. Best of luck in your job search.
