While we focus our professional resume writing and LinkedIn profile writing efforts on those looking for jobs in the U.S. and Canada, we provide career coaching, life coaching, interview coaching, executive coaching, and business mentoring (small business coaching) for a global client base (dozens of countries and counting).
HOW DOES TEXT AND EMAIL SUPPORT WORK?
Text and email support do not include document edits or coaching. Text and email support are limited to 90 calendar days from the date of purchase of services and are administered at sole the discretion of CaffeinatedKyle.com.
HOW DO WRITING PROJECTS WORK?
For writing projects, the first draft of your initial document is typically delivered 15+ business days from receipt of all necessary onboarding items (“homework”) and completion of your Pre-Resume Session or Pre-LinkedIn Session. Please be mindful of the jobs you target as revisions due to changes in the jobs you are targeting will result in additional fees. Additionally, changes due to new or additional information being provided after the completion of the Pre-Resume Session or Pre-LinkedIn Session will result in additional fees.
Each subsequent document will be delivered approximately 5 business days after the previous document is finalized.
Together we will determine a mutually agreed upon delivery date(s) during your Pre-Resume Session or Pre-LinkedIn Session. We reserve the right to extend the delivery date(s) during busy periods and unforeseen circumstances.
HOW DO DOCUMENT REVISIONS WORK?
Resumes receive up to two rounds of revisions. Cover letters, LinkedIn profiles, executive bios, and any other documents receive up to one round of revisions unless otherwise agreed upon in writing. All revisions are to be delivered exclusively in Word Track Changes (not comments) within 7 calendar days of documents being emailed by CaffeinatedKyle.com.
Your first round of revisions is to be delivered via Word Track Changes (not Comments) to CaffeinatedKyle.com within 7 calendar days from receipt of your first draft. Your second round of revisions, if applicable, is due to CaffeinatedKyle.com in writing via Word Track Changes (not Comments) within 7 calendar days from receipt of your final (second) draft. Further, the second round of revisions will focus on proofreading the revisions made during the first round of revisions during the first 7 calendar days; this is not a time to introduce new revisions or information.
For resumes, we will discuss your first round of revisions during the Post-Resume Session, which is to be scheduled within 7 days of receipt of the first draft of your resume. For à la carte LinkedIn profiles (LinkedIn profiles that are not part of a resume package), we will discuss your first round of revisions during the Post-LinkedIn Session, which is to be scheduled within 7 days of receipt of the first draft of your LinkedIn profile. Importantly, your revisions are due to CaffeinatedKyle.com in writing exclusively via Track Changes (not comments) and received at least 48 hours in advance of your Post-Resume or Post-LinkedIn Session.
We reserve the right to limit or reject any revisions that do not align with industry best practices and/or our insights and knowledge. Further, any additional rounds of revisions will be billed at our hourly rate. Additionally, failure to submit revisions within the listed timeframes will result in the project being considered finalized and no further work will be completed.
Fourteen (14) calendar days from receipt of your first draft, your writing project will be considered final and complete. Any additional revisions beyond those outlined in this FAQ or the Service Agreement will be billed at our hourly rate.
Writing projects are considered completed and no further work will be completed by CaffeinatedKyle.com after 60 calendar days from receipt of payment. Projects that take more than 60 calendar days to complete will result in a restart fee ($100 per month or fraction thereof, plus any differences in pricing should CaffeinatedKyle.com increase the price of services while the project is delayed).
