Client may request changes by email or phone. If we do not hear from client within two weeks after resume submission, we reserve the right to finalize work as written.
POLICY ON PROOFREADING THE DRAFT
Career Steering is not responsible for errors provided by the client on client worksheet, or for errors after proofreading and acceptance by client. Career Steering is relying on the client’s truth and accuracy of the information presented for preparation of the resume or other document. Career Steering does not assume responsibility in researching the accuracy of the information provided by client.
Charges are for preparation of the first draft and no more than two revised drafts prior to final copy. Final proofreading is the responsibility of the client. Please take time and proof dossiers. Career Steering will make every effort to assure that client documents are perfect, but because of the personal nature of the service provided, client must assume personal responsibility for final proofing and accuracy. Take time and double-check all data. Should the client require more than two revised drafts, an additional fee may accrue until finalized.
All information shared during, before, and after the duration of our collaboration remains confidential, with the exception of a trusted assistant and editor, if asked to collaborate on the project. This staff member will uphold same strict levels of confidentiality and discretion as Rosa E. Vargas.
