We heard so much about Unemployedprofessors.com, mainly because they were the first to use extensive storytelling to raise brand awareness. Indeed, their site is pretty unusual and greets visitors with a story of an unemployed professor who needed to pay rent and came up with an idea of an essay writing service.
On top of that, to make the story more believable, the people at Unemployedprofessors.com also created a textbook exchange service where students can sell and buy used textbooks to avoid paying high prices for them.
The idea might look kinda dope, but we definitely have a problem with the way Unemployedprofessors.com presents it to visitors. For example, one icon showing the alleged meeting of the “unemployed professor” features a person with a bottle of liquor, smoking a cigarette. Another example was a fill out form featured two glasses of beer that were put beside the pencil, prompting the viewer to choose between writing and drinking alcohol.
This is definitely something that a website with a lot of young visitors should avoid.
Writing Services Offered
Unemployedprofessors.com claims that their writers can write pretty much anything “as long as it’s legal.” To give you some specifics, we have found a few menu sections dedicated to research papers, essays, and dissertations. The list of other services that we’ve been able to discover for this Unemployedprofessors.com review included programming assignment writing, resume writing, multiple-choice questions, statistics project writing, and editing.
Pricing and Discounts
The information about pricing is very limited at Unemployedprofessors.com. At first, we thought that the website could definitely use a pricing table so the visitors had the idea of what to expect, but then we discovered they had a bidding system. So, to get “professors” to take a look at your paper, you need to register, submit the details, and wait for bids.
All bids range between $10 and $35 per page, as we later found out.
We ordered a 3-page nursing paper and it was pretty bad because of a few reasons. First and foremost, it wasn’t written by a “professor.” When we submitted our paper, we’ve got a bunch of offers ranging between $4 and $12 per page. There’s simply no way all of them were real professors or at least university graduates from English-speaking because of the low prices as well as the mistakes in the messages they sent to us.
We strongly suspect that Unemployedprofessors.com follows a common scheme: hire freelancers from all over the world and sell them as professional writers with degrees from English-speaking countries.
Evidence? Our paper had seven grammar and spelling mistakes, poor logical flow of ideas, and a weak thesis statement. On top of that, even though we wanted university-level writing, the paper was written in ridiculously simple English that reminded us of a middle school essay we recently read.
We can’t say that the customer support at Unemployed Professors is terrible, but it’s not good, either. We had to wait almost an hour for someone to respond to us via something that looked like a live chat option. The same happened with the email, too.
On the other hand, the support members were helpful when they were available.
So, to conclude this Unemployedprofessors.com review, we can confidently say that we don’t recommend this essay writing service to anyone. Not only many of their writers aren’t exactly professors, but freelancers from all over the scene. They just came up with the word “professor” for the levels of writers (for example, we’ve seen “Gold,” “Diamond,” and “Platinum” professors). Judging from the mistakes made in our paper, it was definitely completed by a non-native English speaker.
Even though the bidding system seems like a good idea, it doesn’t do a good job at Unemployed Professors because most of the bids come from new writers without any rating and proven expertise. That’s why the prices we encountered were quite affordable, but they come with a risk of being handed a poor quality paper (which was exactly was happened to us).
So, to cut a long story short, Unemployedprofessors.com was not a reliable essay writing service but just another place with a bunch of freelancers. Buying papers from them involves a great deal of risk because of the reasons we’ve mentioned above.
