Another email came today from Jobfox’s Senior Resume Consultant, Madeline Willis. I get it – Jobfox is a rip off. So I’m entertaining myself by posting her emails and my responses here. Today, I actually replied to her (it?). See Madeline’s email and then my response below.
I’m writing to follow up on the suggestions I sent to make your resume more powerful. I believe we can make your resume more attractive to employers and help you get more interviews to dramatically speed your job search.
In this job market a professionally-written resume has become a necessity. Smart job seekers are using professional resumes to stand out. Companies are receiving hundreds of resumes per job, and job seekers need to present a near-perfect image to get their attention. A professional resume sends a signal that you’re more professional and committed to doing things well.
You can still save $100 on your new resume and pay $299 or just $53.28 over 6 months with your credit card if you purchase within the next 3 days. A professionally-written and formatted resume can shorten your job search, paying for itself. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
Click here to learn more, or call or email me with any questions. We’re committed to helping people get hired, and I’m here to assist with your resume.

This is the third email I’ve received from you. I signed up on Jobfox to find a job and I’m starting to think Jobfox doesn’t really want me to FIND a job, they just want me to PAY to have my resume “fixed.”
Now how much sense does this all make? I’ve just lost my job. NO job. Which means NO money. So how am I supposed to justify $300-$400 to spruce up my resume when I could be paying my electric bill AND my grocery bill for the next month? Perhaps you could get the employers to pay you to find quality candidates.
I don’t know if you’re a real person, Madeline, but I’m really getting the feeling that Jobfox is a big ol scam. If you’re really committed to helping me find a job, maybe you should send me jobs to which I may apply. It took me a solid two hours to get my stuff uploaded into Jobfox and fill in all the little “mini-interview” questions (Really? You’re calling it a mini-interview?) to find no matched jobs.
I want a job search engine that will point me to real jobs – not ads or scams or shady-sounding “work at home” junk. I don’t want to pay hundreds for ANYTHING. The first rule of job hunting? You do not pay to hunt for a job.
