❶You gave my resume the ooomph that it needed for the amount of experience I have.




They have no solution and only wasting my time. It was my folly that I paid the money to you guys, instead of some good Job Service Providers. What Ajitha has done which Venktesh was not able to. Both have done the same thing. First promising and then NOT Picking the phone. Deepti Kaushik Calling Time: I remember the days that Monster was the place to go for job searches. Not sure what happened, but it is horrible!! Some of the jobs are postings from months ago too.

I tried to change the filter to only show new jobs posted in the past 2 weeks and it clears out my key words so I get every job that Monster has listed. I shut the email notifications off cause they jobs had nothing to do with I set it up with.

The resume reviewer is useless. I got a piece of feedback that I needed to take the pronouns out of my resume. There are no pronouns in my resume. Just stay away, stick with Indeed even though they have their own issues and I have found some good leads on Linked In.

Worst job board we have ever used. If anything, they actually hindered us as a business. David Briffa needs a complete retrain on customer service and his aggressive approach. Please do not use Monster. Their resume writing service is a bad joke! I have paid for a resume service along with all the other add on Services to a cost of USD and I have been speaking to their team for over a month to no avail.

They have no understanding of the industries such as Telco. That page has a login option that just reloads the page and sticks you in a loop. Half the time these idiots are calling me about a job that has nothing to do with what I actually do. I posted a EA job position on Monster. After many hours of communication and correspondence with them, it seems clear to me, that the recruitment services they proposed to me are a scam.

It was great speaking with you today. We have a staff of over recruiters called TalentFusion that do an amazing job providing a pipeline of qualified candidates. We work with your team, to identify the perfect candidate, then we get to work. We will interview and screen all candidates and send you the interested, qualified candidates. Finally at the end of the call with Katy and Leigh, the only specifications of the "agreement" Katy could provide me involved a payment schedule outlined and invoiced below.

When I asked Katy to put in writing the minimum responsibilities and limitations of the services they had promised, they reiterated the same vague details in an email unrelated to any meaningful performance indicators or specific outcomes.

And I call it a scam, because besides their failure to provide me a reasonable contract, they failed to mention in over three hours of phone and email communications what the invoice stipulated: We appreciate your time and all of the information you were able to share. I am attaching some slides for you to take a look at that paint of picture of our process. I want to be sure we are being upfront with what you can expect from us and in return what we would expect form you as our partner.

Each program begins with a Kick Off Call. My team will likely ask you some questions about the role and the opportunity. We look for your participation on this call to provide feedback on candidates and to allow my team to share with you market data and behind the scenes information on our recruitment strategy.

My team expects that you will provide information, partner to provide feedback and be open to best practices and recommendations we may have along the way. Whether you end up interviewing every candidate or disliking every candidate we send to you, this portion of the fee would still be owed. My team will work hard to find candidates that have the skillset you are looking for and that are interested in your opportunity, but we cannot guarantee the hire. You will own the responsibility of an initial call with candidates, the actual interviews and with negotiating salary and making an offer.

Leigh Fields Quote Valid From: Customer agrees to provide Monster with a weekly report on all hires made from candidates provided by Monster. Monster will bill Customer on a monthly basis Net 30 terms for additional fees due for the accepted interviews and each hire as set forth herein. Monster may, upon notice to Customer, audit any and all hiring records of Customer relating to this Agreement. Eventhough I had updated my country of origin yet I was registered to Monster India and was receiving ridiculous request.

I strongly discourage applicants from using Monster. They are a terrible company and i would highly recomend that you stay completely away from them. Their software is not that great and i have heard that their Job Board does not give great results either. Some of their software looks ok but from reading other reports it does not give great results.

I would advise anyone to stay away from this "FANCY" software other simpler jobs boards are much better. I know of other people running into trouble with monster Feeling duped and tricked by their sales team like i have been and after contesting it they have been allowed out of the contract BUT only after signing a non-disclosure contract so. I would very much like to hear from anyone who has had a bad experience of Monster as they have tried to make me feel that i am unique and fussy though speaking to others i am gradually begginning to see that they mislead alot of people and i would like to hear from you as we are all stronger together.

After a lengthy process of job hunting including receiving irrelevant job suggestions from monster. Now I want to unsubscribe the service, and as I begin to do so, they begin to do what they suppose to do, which is giving out my info to recruiters, yea, after I found a job. Now I am receiving calls every day at work, from these recruiters pop out from the middle of nowhere, and of course they are referred by monster.

Apparently there is this "10 days processing" before I could completely unsubscribe from monster. Never trust these people, these people run the paid services with a bunch of inexperienced people who does not even know to converse in English.

Beware of these people, be really aware and never fall into such trap, they are just looting people in the name of needy people who are desperate for jobs. Dont Use Agencies Beware!

We clearly listed all the necessary qualifications, as well as the above-average salary and benefits we offered.

Three weeks later, the number of ad views is less than and the NINE people who applied have no posted CV and are looking for positions that have nothing to do with health care, and include anything from forklift operator to dog sitting and newspaper advertising sales. Visibility is pathetic, algorithm-based matching of the needs of the employers and the qualifications of the employees is obviously non existent, and if the people who responded are a representative cross-section of the potential employee pool, finding suitable candidates for other than low-level unskilled jobs is a losing proposition on this website.

I sent out 8 resumes and had 6 interview requests! You will also be pleased to know that I already have an interview using the newly re-targeted resume that was just completed. You guys are the best! Had another interview this morning with another company. I just wanted to thank you for creating such a professional, eye catching resume for me I am referring 2 people to you as well. To have someone who truly understands I guess the best way I can say this, is the professionalism, sincerity and genuine commitment to my project is something we all as consumers wish we could experience with any company we do business with!

I needed to let you know that I sent this resume to a large financial corporation just this morning, and within 15 minutes I received a phone call setting up an interview! After 7 months of frustration in getting employers attention, this resume and cover letter was able to do it for me in 15 minutes!! Thank you so much. My expectation was an incremental improvement over what I had, but you really took it to another level; I really am speechless. That other Resume I had attached was actually done by one of your competitors a year ago.

There is no question who did a better job I was never confident about my resume until now. Thank you very much," A. I posted it on Monster and received a phone call with an offer within hours. Again, this resume is amazing. I will try to recommend this service to my friends as well.

I am a very satisfied customer. I cannot describe how happy I am that someone was able to translate my skills as an Army Officer to Civilian skills. The Resume looks and reads great. Two more interested whom I have not met, two seconds and one rejection.

Not bad for being posted for three days I would say. I will highly recommend your services to other job seekers. The attention to the customer has also been highly commendable. The two other services were good but [your] service stood far apart. My resume and cover letter were totally transformed by [your service] and it was very rich in content. They gave my resume the cutting edge which is required in [the] job hunting process I am very happy with [your] resume writing services and will highly recommend this service to all people searching for jobs.

I was only out of work for 1 week before I found the job I have been searching for so long. I have never worked as an Administrative Assistant before because no one would ever look at my resume for such a position.

With your help I found a great job with a great company in only 1 week. After less than a week on Monster. Thanks again for such a wonderful product. You did a great, great job! There is a definite art to writing a good resume But you do, and thank heavens I saw that banner ad Taking advantage of this service was so worth it. Nice to know there is something there after my military career I am truly grateful Being a writer I know how to cut through the clutter of unnecessary verbiage, but the result is that I sell myself short on my resume.

You gave my resume the ooomph that it needed for the amount of experience I have. Also, where I have posted my resume and other resume writing service companies have offered to give me a free consultation, no one has been able to criticize any part of the resume. And thank you so much for excellent service! I have gotten many positive comments on it. In addition, the various formats you provided have been very useful in my job search. The easy and informal way you communicated with me was very reassuring.

I have just received notification of successful application for a position with the Federal government which promises to be very challenging. Kindest regards to you and the staff at CareerPerfect. It is without a doubt the resume and cover letter you wrote. I also think the layout is exceptional. I just have to say that I am overwhelmed with the amount of responses I am getting from employers.
