How It Works for New Policy, Services Not Free

Phone interviews unfortunately are no longer free, because my time is valuable and too many people have taken advantage. I can no longer give my time away for free. If you are serious about it, the way I can know that you are serious is by receiving a fee for my time; the cancellation policy is listed below.

Brief telephone consultations are only by appointment. Please send job order and description, including a brief outline of the services being requested.

If a telephone consultation goes over 5 minutes, I charge for my time in 1 hour increments for projects and for phone consultations.

My regular fee is $80.00 for my hourly rate for consulting; no exceptions. Of course, a regular salary for full-time permanent employment is always negotiable.

Therefore, I recommend and suggest you send requested items first. If you need more time for a telephone appointment, payment must be received prior to our appointment.
