Q: I do not want my current employer to receive my resume. How is this handled?

A: " Unfortunately, we currently do not 'weed out' certain recruiters or companies due to the fact that the blasting is automated."

Q: Why doesn't BlastYourResume.com offer this service for free?

A: " We are very different from other services on the Internet. Most of the other services put your resume in a database. First, the recruiters have to search the database for key words that will pull your resume up and then they have to choose to read your resume from all the ones that were pulled up. This is a reactive way of getting to recruiters. The recruiters have to do all the work. We are a resume distribution service. Recruiters sign up to receive our resumes in their own email. They do not have to search for you. This is much more proactive. We do all the work to get your resume in front of recruiters. While we don't guarantee anyone will get a job, we do guarantee that we can get your resume in front of recruiters. You have to consider that this is an investment and with any investment there is some risk associated. However, this a calculated risk, as you must remember it only takes one recruiter to actually get you a job. "

Q: Are you able to provide any success statistics?

A: " We do not provide any particular statistics, other than the number of recruiters we can send your resume to AND the number of resumes we've blasted in the past (you can see this on our main page). You may also want to view the Customer Testimonial page. "

Q: What kind of response level should I expect?

A: " The amount of response varies for each candidate. Many things go into whether a recruiter will immediately respond to your resume. Mostly, if they have a job opportunity for you NOW, but also many others; not just the quality of your resume, but your type of skills, salary requirements, location requirements, citizenship requirements, etc., etc. Remember, it only takes ONE recruiter to get you a job. Follow up with each recruiter, even if they have nothing for you at this time. You never know when they will. "

We are not a job placement agency, nor do we guarantee responses and/or jobs. Many variables outside of our control affect whether a candidate gets responses and/or job offers.

A: "When you order the Confidential Add-On Option, we will do several things. First, we will review your resume manually to ensure you have no identifying information in the resume, and will provide feedback to you. Secondly, we will establish a unique phone number and will set it up to forward to your regular phone number automatically. Lastly, we will mask both your E-Mail Address and Phone Number when we send out your resume to make sure that the recruiters do not have your actual info. They will still be able to reach you through the E-Mail and Phone forwarding we set up for you."

The purpose of using BlastYourResume.com is to distribute your resume directly to recruiters’ email inboxes. The number of recruiters distributed to varies due to the geographical and disciplinary preferences you select. You have the opportunity, prior to payment and blasting, to calculate how many recruiters your resume will go out to.

We are not a job placement agency, nor do we guarantee responses and/or jobs. Many variables outside of our control affect whether a candidate gets responses and/or job offers. Some of these are: job availability, the quality of the resume, skill level, salary requirements, location requirements, citizenship requirements, etc... It's easy to assume a huge response, but that is not always the case.

Our Guarantee
Our service guarantees that we will distribute your profile to all the recruiters that are subscribed and have selected the same geographical and disciplinary preferences that you have. The type and amount of preferences depend on the level of service you select.

If, under any circumstance, BlastYourResume.com does not perform the service as advertised, (i.e. distributing your resume to matched recruiters,) we promise a full money-back guarantee. Some examples of these types of circumstances would be: we did not actually distribute the resume, there were errors with distribution such as duplicated last, blast unreadable, or other technical errors.

Refund Policy for Low Responses, Undeliverables, and Resume Errors
We do not issue refunds for low responses. However, we do offer a free re-blast for customers that receive low responses.

We also do not issue refunds for errors on the resume. You are responsible for reviewing the blast text prior to approval and blasting. This includes proofreading the resume content for typographical or formatting errors.

We do not issue refunds for undeliverable emails except under extreme circumstances. An extreme circumstance consists of undeliverable amounts exceeding 4% of the total number of recruiters the resume was blasted to. For example, if a customer were blasted to 2,000 recruiters, they could receive as many as 80 undeliverable emails to remain under the 4%. (Auto-responses do not count as undeliverables.) You will be informed upon initiation of your blast why you receive undeliverables and what to do about them. It is understandable, when receiving 15-20 undeliverables, that you may feel like that is excessive; however when you compare that with the fact that you were sent to (in many cases) upwards of 2-3,000 recruiters, that is a very low percentile rate. Again we offer a free re-blast for those that are dissatisfied due to their undeliverables. To learn more about undeliverables before you begin click here. "

Q: What are undeliverables, and why do I receive them?

A: " Undeliverables are those messages that are 'returned' for some reason---their delivery was not successful. We work very hard to keep our list of recruiters current. Even though the recruiters must request to be on our list, on any given day we can have returns for various reasons: systems down, full e-mail boxes, too many hops, internet router problems, etc. We strive to keep our undeliverable rate below 4%. For example, if a person's profile is blasted to 2000 recruiters, they may have as many as 80 undeliverable messages. **Undeliverable messages do NOT include 'WARNINGS' or AUTO RESPONSES.**

Customers do NOT get a carbon copy of each blast that was sent out, as this would inundate our customers with unnecessary emails. There are basically 2 types of responses that should come to customers. This includes both "valid" responses from recruiters along with the undeliverables. All "responses" go directly to your email address to ensure your privacy. This is the only solution we have found thus far that ensures our customers' privacy.

Undeliverables are a concern of our entire staff, and we constantly research ways to minimize their occurrence.

We ask that customers PLEASE FORWARD ANY UNDELIVERABLES RECEIVED to the following address at their convenience: Service@BlastYourResume.com "

Q: May I get a refund for getting undeliverable emails from my blast?

Q: Why haven't I received more responses to my blast?

A: " Your blast response level can be affected by a variety of factors: your discipline selections, geographical preferences/location requirements, salary requirements, position requirements, the quality of your resume, your type of skills, citizenship requirements, etc., etc. The number of responses depends upon all these items. Another factor is whether or not recruiters have a job opportunity for you at the time of your blast. It's easy to assume a huge response, but that's not always the case. Also, not all recruiters respond immediately. If they don't have a job for you at the time of your blast, then they most likely enter you in their database for future searches. Lastly, following up with each recruiter is important, even if they have nothing for you at the current time. You never know when they will. The average job search takes 3-6 months. "

Q: Do recruiters/employers reply directly to me, or through you?

A: " Everyone that you are blasted to, who is interested in your resume, will directly contact you. We are not recruiters, we are a resume distribution service. "

Q: How do I know these are all recruiters?

A: " We painstakingly validate EVERY recruiter added to our list. We make sure that each person that signs up is truly a recruiter. Every now and then, someone who is sneaky or deceptive gets onto our list, so if you do get a response from someone like that, please let us know by e-mailing us at Service@BlastYourResume.com so that we can remove them from our list immediately."
