    Do not hire. Charged 8 hours for absolutely worthless resumes anyone else could have found in less than an hour.
    Freelancer's Response
    First off, I am nothing but the consummate professional and take what I do seriously and to heart! I love what I do, and am grateful for the opportunity to make honest pay for honest work! I made every effort to assist this client with his job descriptions and sourcing needs for a job order he was struggling with. I viewed hundreds of resumes and profiles, and submitted what I could find that was as close to the 'aggregate' criteria as possible. He informed me and I quote, "dont worry about that one- Aggregate experience is tough-" and proceeded to tell me, "Please hold off on anymore- company only wants aggregate experience," so I complied and waited for further instructions, all while receiving a few messages that clearly were not intended for me. The following week he proceeded to send me the most unprofessional and belligerent message full of false accusations and misinformation! DO NOT WORK FOR THIS CLIENT! Very unprofessional and confused person! Very bad experience. Save yourself the HEADACHE and ADVERSE feedback! I should have viewed and vetted his profile, I would have declined his invitation!
