By authorizing iCareerSolutions to proceed with the development of his or her career marketing documents, the client agrees that they are entitled to no more than two full rounds of revisions over the course of the project.
The project fee quote is based on information provided to iCareerSolutions. All additional services beyond the initial scope of work will be billed on a per-hour basis.
Payment to iCareerSolutions is due in full before services are rendered.
EXPECTATIONS OF CLIENT AND iCAREERSOLUTIONS:
- Client agrees to pay all fees associated with requested work and participate fully in the information-gathering process for creating career documents.
- iCareerSolutions will not be responsible for missed deadlines if the client is late in providing information or does not approve of work in a timely manner at any stage of the process.
- The client must review all career documents for accuracy (including errors and missing or incomplete content) and respond by email with any changes or corrections (or approval to finalize) within seven days of receipt of the draft documents. If changes are indicated, iCareerSolutions will provide two additional drafts of the documents for client review and approval. Changes required must remain in the agreed scope of work, and if significant changes are required, such as a change in the focus of the documents, additional charges will apply. If corrections or approval are not provided within the timeline specified, it is assumed the documents are acceptable, and the project will be finalized.
- Additional or new information introduced after work has started will generate additional fees for consultation and writing services at the rate of $95.00/hour, billed in quarter-hour increments and due before draft delivery.
- Requests for changes, corrections, or revisions after the project is finalized will be subject to additional charges at the rate of $95.00/hour, billable in quarter-hour increments.
TIMELINES AND PROJECT FINALIZATION:
- Unless other arrangements are made, document drafts are provided within five business days from when the client information is received (completed Questionnaire/Matrix is received from the client).
- Rush service is available for an additional fee.
- If the project has not been finalized 30 days from the date of this agreement, the project will be considered complete, and the client will forfeit the rights to any services not used.

- Changes after finalization — including client’s discretionary revisions — are subject to additional charges at the $95.00 hourly rate, billed in quarter-hour increments.
- iCareerSolutions will work with client in good faith to compose and design exceptional career marketing materials based on the data provided.
- The documents composed by iCareerSolutions must be marketed properly to produce interviews and that no guarantee of interviews, job offers, or employment is made when utilizing the services of iCareerSolutions. Client accepts full responsibility for the outcome of any job search campaign and agrees not to hold iCareerSolutions responsible for the lack of interviews or job offers, failure to obtain employment, or any other related outcomes.
- Client success is directly dependent on the effort, commitment, and diligence employed using the new career documents and a variety of job search strategies (applying for advertised positions, networking, social media search, direct contact with potential employers, etc.). Outcomes are affected by many external variables, including market volatility, local and national economies, market saturation for a particular industry, and client’s level of experience, skills, and education.
