  • If you are unemployed and need a hand, we will proofread your resume for free.

    April 18, 2013 Update: The authenticity of this program was verified by About.com's Alison Doyle on the About.com Job Search blog. Our thanks go to Alison for helping protect job seekers from scams.

    We know the job market is still tough and we know that some people don't feel like they have a friend in their corner. If you are struggling to find a job, we want to help by proofreading your resume for free. Our goal is to proofread at least 1,000 resumes for people who could use a hand. When we hit that goal, we'll see if we can keep going.

    Our professional proofreaders will check resumes for:

    • Grammar
    • Spelling
    • Formatting inconsistencies
    • Word choice
    • Sentence structure

    Why are we doing this?

    A better question might be this: Why don't more companies do things like this? We are in a privileged position and very much aware that many people helped us to get here. The least we can do is pay it forward by helping at least 1,000 people get on their feet.

    Requesting Our Help

    April 20, 2013 Update: We've been inundated with hundreds of requests for free resume proofreading this week. Going forward, you must be a resident of the United States to submit a resume for free proofreading. Preference will be given to:

    • Veterans
    • People who have been unemployed for six months or longer

    We still aim to help at least 1,000 people. In working toward that goal, these parameters will ensure we help those with the greatest need. Thank you for understanding and for spreading the word about this program.

    We've made it easy; simply click on the link below to upload your resume into our system and tell us a little about yourself.

    Want to help?

    If you are not struggling to find a job, but you still want to contribute to this project, please share this post in forums, on blogs, and via social media to help spread the word to people in need or follow us on Facebook to receive updates about our progress. Though our goal is to proofread resumes for people who need a hand, the first challenge is finding the people who could really use our help.

     

    Thank you!

    All the best,

    Founder and CEO

      If your resume isn’t getting you interviews, utilize this free resume review. This is focused on people who have been unemployed for an excessive amount of time. Take advantage of someone proofreading your resume.

      I read this offer and thought, what a wonderful gesture to help those who are seeking employment.
      I live in Canada and this approach has not been done.
      Is there a possibility that you would proof-read my resume?

      Thank you for reading this email and good luck to those you help.

      Regards,
      Annette

      It posts more danger if you can only help people that are resident of United States of America and not other parts of the World. Please try to help people outside of Amercia as well.
