Terms & Conditions
Thank you very much for visiting www.margaretgerety.com (our “Site”) and your interest in Margaret Gerety Advisors LLC ("we"). We are excited to transform your career collateral into materials that will make you shine. So that we can meet your expectations, please take the time to understand the following terms & conditions ("Terms").
Please note that by accessing or using any part of our Site or making any payment to us you are engaging in our "Services" and agree to be bound by these Terms.
Commitment to collaboration; revisions
You play an integral part in the creation of your resume and other career materials. Your ability to provide accurate and prompt answers to questions made by phone, in emails, or in the draft documents themselves, directly impacts the quality of your final materials and their timely delivery (your "Contributions"). In paying for any Service, you also agree to the following:
Commit to dedicating at least 5 hours/week during the duration of your Services in order to review drafts, participate in calls with us, and research your personal archives to answer questions with respect to your professional background and accomplishments;
Make all requests for revisions, in writing, within 3 business days of receipt of the draft (by email or otherwise); and
Confirm the accuracy and truthfulness of all materials created as part of your Services.
All resumes, professional bios, cover letters, and LinkedIn profile recommendations are created based on the information and job search criteria provided by you. Requests for edits that are a material change to those representations are outside of the scope of Service. Requests that target a different job function/industry are outside of the scope of Service but can be purchased as an "Add-On Service," as described below.
Process & timeline
You will receive the “First Draft” of your materials no later than 5 business days from your first call (not including any free consultation call). Your specific timeline will be outlined in writing.
After an interactive, collaborative editing and review process, you will receive an email stating that the documents attached are “final.” Unless you make any final revision requests within 3 days of receipt, your Services will be deemed complete.
All Services are deemed complete no later than 60 calendar days from the date of your first call (not including any free consultation).
Inactivity & reactivation fee
If you fail to respond to requests for materials, edits, or review calls, we reserve the right to suspend our work with you after 10 business days of your inactivity. Resuming your Services will be subject to our availability and a $250 reactivation fee will be applied.
Some of our Services include professional proofreading provided by an outside, independent contractor subject to a confidentiality agreement with Margaret Gerety Advisors LLC. Proofreading does not include fact-checking. Please note that once your documents go to the proofreader, you are indicating this will be the last round of revisions (i.e., no more request for substantial edits can be made).
Cover letters, professional bios, and second resumes are add-on Services and cannot be purchased without the previous purchase of a resume. Please contact email@example.com for inquiries and custom order requests.
We provide all materials in Microsoft Word and PDF. Upon request, we can send your Final Documents as Google Documents.
100% satisfaction guarantee, disclaimers.
We guarantee that you’ll love your new career collateral. What does that mean? It means that we are committed to delivering an exceptional experience and a high-quality, final product. However, we cannot guarantee that your revised resume, cover letter, and/or LinkedIn profile will secure you an interview or job offer, result in your being hired, or are 100% error-free.
Our guarantee expires 30 days after the Final Documents are received. You forfeit the right to our guarantee if you do not actively Collaborate during the process or provide any requested information. At any point during the 30-day window, please feel free to reach out firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns or questions.
Since this is a service-based business that creates bespoke career collateral that cannot be physically returned, we do not offer refunds. We urge you to give us your feedback (to email@example.com) to help us achieve total client satisfaction.

The current pricing structure displayed on our Site may be subject to future change at any time. We reserve the right to cancel or cease offering any of the aforementioned Services and/or products.

Except where prohibited by applicable law, you agree that these Terms will not be construed against us by virtue of having drafted them.
