Q: How does the FREE Trial Work?

A: " The FREE trial is a weekly subscription. The first week is FREE and after that, there is a small fee each week. We will blast your resume DAILY, every day until you cancel. This service not only enables you to try our service for free, but also maybe the perfect service for your job search. Especially if you want to pace yourself as you make contacts with recruiters. Every week we will send you an E-Mail 2 days before your subscription is set to renew. We will provide you with analytics about your resume blast so you can make an informed decision on whether to continue or not. If you choose to continue, do nothing. If you choose to cancel, you can return to the dashboard and cancel your subscription. It's simple. Once cancelled, we will continue to send your resume until the end of that week. If you don't want us to do that, you can also pause your blast.

If you change your mind after cancelling, but before the end of your week, you can reactivate your trial easily as well. If you decide a week, a few weeks or months later, you can resubscribe right from your dashboard. No need to sign up again and fill out the registration form. You can upload a new resume, choose new disciplines or locations, change your subject line, summary and then un-pause blasting and you will be good to go! "

Q: What is the Recruiter List?

A: " The recruiter list provides feedback to you in a few ways. First, we show you a list of the firms and recruiters to whom we send your resume. You will see every single one of them. And, we even go beyond that for recruiters who view/download your resume. You can find their website and phone numbers on your job seeker dashboard. This enables you to follow up with someone you know viewed your resume. How valuable is that? In addition, we offer the option for you to be notified via SMS so you can know in real-time when someone is viewing your resume."

Q: When will my resume will be distributed?

A: " For the FREE Trial/Weekly Subscription, we will send resumes every day for you until you cancel. For our Fast Blast service, resumes are normally distributed within 1-3 business days after completion of the process (payment processed and approval received). You will receive a confirmation message via email when your profile starts blasting and will also be notified when it has completed. "

Q: How do I know my resume will be distributed?

A: " You will receive confirmation messages directly from many of the companies and recruiters. These responses will begin immediately, and will continue over a period of time as your resume continues to be blasted (days or weeks depending on which service you choose). But don't be dismayed if you don't get any responses right away. Remember, timing is everything. Just keep blasting until you get those contacts you need! "

Q: Is it possible to change the e-mail address without restarting?

A: " Yes. You can change your e-mail address on the job seeker dashboard. Just login and click the Contact Details tab to change your e-mail address. "

Q: How do I get started with your service?

A: " You can click on any Sign Up link, provide us with just a few details, attach your resume, and then activate the FREE trial or pay for the Fast Blast. We will start sending your resume within 24 hours."

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. Given we focus on 3rd party recruiters, it is unlikely your employer would receive your resume, but it is always possible that a recruiter you're already working with receives it. And of course, as with any job search, there is always the possibility your employer may find out you are looking for a new opportunity. "

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

A: " Firstly, we DO have a FREE Trial for one week with a small weekly fee after that. The bottom line is that we are very different from other services on the Internet that are free. Most of the other services put your resume in a database. To be found, 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 and provide you the analytics and information you need to follow up with them. 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, we have taken the risk out of the picture by offering a free trial. No other resume distribution service offers this. Just remember, it only takes ONE recruiter to actually get you a job. "

Q: Are you able to provide any success statistics?

A: " We provide success statistics related to the success of your resume blast, but not your job search. We provide the # of recruiters to whom we have blasted your resume, the # of recruiters who have opened your blast emails, and the number of recruiters who have clicked to view or download your resume. In addition, we provide immediate feedback to you when a recruiter views your resume. This enables you to follow up. As we are a resume distribution service, we do not guarantee that one will get a job using our service, but many do!"

Q: How does the FREE Trial Work?

You can upload a new resume, choose new disciplines or locations, change your subject line, summary and then un-pause blasting and you will be good to go! "

Q: What kind of response level should I expect?

A: " The number of responses vary for each candidate. There are many factors which influence whether or not a recruiter will immediately respond to your resume. For example, if they have a job opportunity that fits your skill right now, they will reach out immediately, but if not, they may just keep your resume for future reference. Other factors include: quality of your resume, your type of skills, salary requirements, location requirements, citizenship requirements, 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. "

Q: How is your site different from other employment sites on the web?

A: " We are very different from other services on the internet where your resume is put into a database. The recruiters have to search the database for keywords that will filter resumes. Then they have to wade through the scores of results to find yours. Our process is much more proactive. Recruiters sign up to receive our resumes in their own email, they do not have to search for you! In addition, we offer a FREE trial which no other resume distribution service offers! You can try our service risk FREE!"

Q: What is the Recruiter List?

A: " The recruiter list provides feedback to you in a few ways. First, we show you a list of the firms and recruiters to whom we send your resume. You will see every single one of them.

Q: Do you have to submit a cover letter?

A: " A cover letter is optional (you can include it in your file just before your resume if you wish), although we do encourage you to use this to further elaborate regarding your skills, experience and career objectives. The cover letter is a great opportunity for you to set yourself apart from the many resumes that recruiters receive on a daily basis. "

Q: What kind of file types can I submit my resume in.

A: " We highly recommend using PDF format to send your resume, however, we also accept plain text, rich text, Microsoft Word and Powerpoint. PDF format allows recruiters to view your resume easily, and that's important! "

Q: What are my payment options?

A: " We currently accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover cards. If you are unable to pay with one of these methods, please contact us and we will see if we can make alternative arrangements. "

Q: Do you have a guarantee?

A: " We guarantee that we will distribute your profile to all the recruiters that are subscribed and have selected the same discipline and location preferences that you have in addition to those recruiters that want all resumes. We are so sure you will love our service that we offer a one week FREE trial. If you don't like it, cancel before the 8th day and you will never be billed. If you DO like it, then stay on for a small charge each week. You can cancel as soon as you have all the contacts you need.

If, under any circumstance, you feel that 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 list, blast unreadable, or other technical errors. 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. Timing is everything!

Q: Where do I view the information I provided when I signed up, in case I want to change it?

A: " You may view and make the changes by logging in to the job seeker dashboard. There you can make changes to your contact info, resume, subject line, summary, communication preferences and change your E-Mail or Password. "

Q: I want to change the email address that I first signed up with, how do I do that?

A: " Yes. You can change your e-mail address on the job seeker dashboard. Just login and click the Contact Details tab to change your e-mail address. "

Q: How can I upgrade the service from what I initially ordered, i.e. Weekly FREE Trial to Fast Blast?

A: " If you have not yet activated your FREE trial, you can still upgrade on the dashboard. If you have already paid and your blast has been queued and is currently being sent, you can pause your blast and contact us at Service@BlastYourResume.com. Once your blast has completed you can no longer upgrade it automatically, but we may be able to manually upgrade you. "

Q: I would appreciate any constructive criticism concerning the content or format of my resume.

A: " We don't make judgment calls on cover letters or resumes, frankly, because we are not specialists in that area. We specialize in distribution. It would be best to consult a professional in the resume and cover letter creation area. You can find some of those resources at our Job Seeker Resources page."

Q: What is your refund policy?

A: " If you are concerned about this, use our FREE Trial risk free. Otherwise, here is our BlastYourResume.com Refund Policy
The purpose of using BlastYourResume.com is to distribute your resume directly to recruiter's email inboxes. The number of recruiters to which your resume is distributed varies due to the geographical and discipline 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 list, 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. "

Q: How do I get notified when recruiters view my resume?

A: " We offer two ways for you to get notified: Your Job Seeker Dashboard and SMS. You can find phone and company info for recruiters who have viewed your resume on the dashboard (click Show Recruiters) to see them. In addition, if you choose to be notified via SMS, we send an SMS in real-time when a recruiter views the resume. We also provide you the name (if available) and phone number so you can follow up at your convenience. "

Q: After my resume was blasted, I noticed an error on my resume/profile; will you give me a refund?

A: " We do not issue refunds for errors on the resume. You are responsible for reviewing your resume prior to approval and blasting. This includes proofreading the resume content for typographical or formatting errors. "

Q: I did not receive many responses; can I get my money back?

A: " If you're on the FREE trial, be patient. There are many reasons why you may not receive too many responses up front. If you chose a Fast Blast, we do not issue refunds for low responses. However, we do offer a free re-blast for customers that receive low responses. "

Q: What kind of response level should I expect?

A: " The number of responses vary for each candidate. There are many factors which influence whether or not a recruiter will immediately respond to your resume. For example, if they have a job opportunity that fits your skill right now, they will reach out immediately, but if not, they may just keep your resume for future reference.

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. Timing is everything!

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 are subscribed to 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: How do I get notified when recruiters view my resume?

A: " We offer two ways for you to get notified: Your Job Seeker Dashboard and SMS. You can find phone and company info for recruiters who have viewed your resume on the dashboard (click Show Recruiters) to see them. In addition, if you choose to be notified via SMS, we send an SMS in real-time when a recruiter views the resume.

Q: I did not receive many responses; can I get my money back?

A: " If you're on the FREE trial, be patient. There are many reasons why you may not receive too many responses up front. If you chose a Fast Blast, we do not issue refunds for low responses. However, we do offer a free re-blast for customers that receive low responses. "

Q: Why have I received undeliverable email messages from my blast?

A: " 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, etc. We strive to keep our undeliverable rate below 5%. "

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: What is the Recruiter List?

A: " The recruiter list provides feedback to you in a few ways. First, we show you a list of the firms and recruiters to whom we send your resume. You will see every single one of them. And, we even go beyond that for recruiters who view/download your resume. You can find their website and phone numbers on your job seeker dashboard.

Q: Do you have to submit a cover letter?

A: " A cover letter is optional (you can include it in your file just before your resume if you wish), although we do encourage you to use this to further elaborate regarding your skills, experience and career objectives. The cover letter is a great opportunity for you to set yourself apart from the many resumes that recruiters receive on a daily basis. "

Q: What kind of file types can I submit my resume in.

A: " We highly recommend using PDF format to send your resume, however, we also accept plain text, rich text, Microsoft Word and Powerpoint. PDF format allows recruiters to view your resume easily, and that's important! "

Q: How do I get started with your service?

A: " You can click on any Sign Up link, provide us with just a few details, attach your resume, and then activate the FREE trial or pay for the Fast Blast. We will start sending your resume within 24 hours."

Q: Where do I view the information I provided when I signed up, in case I want to change it?

A: " You may view and make the changes by logging in to the job seeker dashboard. There you can make changes to your contact info, resume, subject line, summary, communication preferences and change your E-Mail or Password. "

Q: How will I know if my payment has been approved?

A: " For our FREE trial, no payment is necessary up front, but you will activate your trial with a credit card. On Day 8, you will be charged if you don't cancel. You can find this information on your Job Seeker Dashboard. If you are choosing a Fast Blast, your dashboard will also show if payment is due or if it has been received. You will also receive confirmations by e-mail. "

Q: I want to change the email address that I first signed up with, how do I do that?

A: " Yes. You can change your e-mail address on the job seeker dashboard. Just login and click the Contact Details tab to change your e-mail address. "

Q: How can I upgrade the service from what I initially ordered, i.e. Weekly FREE Trial to Fast Blast?

A: " If you have not yet activated your FREE trial, you can still upgrade on the dashboard. If you have already paid and your blast has been queued and is currently being sent, you can pause your blast and contact us at Service@BlastYourResume.com. Once your blast has completed you can no longer upgrade it automatically, but we may be able to manually upgrade you. "

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 are subscribed to 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: What is the Recruiter List?

A: " The recruiter list provides feedback to you in a few ways. First, we show you a list of the firms and recruiters to whom we send your resume. You will see every single one of them. And, we even go beyond that for recruiters who view/download your resume. You can find their website and phone numbers on your job seeker dashboard. This enables you to follow up with someone you know viewed your resume. How valuable is that? In addition, we offer the option for you to be notified via SMS so you can know in real-time when someone is viewing your resume."

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 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. Otherwise, we provide a list of all the recruiters on our website in our About our Recruiters pages, so you can see which companies are listed and look up a few of them to confirm their existence. "
