Since I have been preparing resumes since 2007, I enthusiastically jumped into filling out the company's specialized application. I answered all the questions with detailed information and links. Then, it came: The resume I was supposed to prepare as part of the application. I had not been warned that I would have to complete a non-paid test in order to apply for the position.
I do not take unpaid test assignments. I put too much value on my professional skills.
Had I been warned at the beginning of the application that an unpaid test was part of the process I wouldn't have even started with it. All other help-wanted I have answered in the past two years indicate upfront there will be an unpaid or even paid test.
I am alerting Flex Jobs, et al. that I am appalled at this failure to disclose what was part of the application. How can clients using Talent Inc. trust the integrity of its services?
