It seems that UnemployedProfessors.com, as an online writing service, has been around since 2011. It had an interesting beginning, with an unemployed professor bitterly worried about being let go and not being able to find work. In fact, many professors were in the same situation as colleges and universities were downsizing to save money. He decided to start this academic writing company to provide custom writing opportunities for students and also to provide jobs for other professors in the same situation. The company's website tells its story through several cartoon-like visuals that are both engaging and somewhat humorous.
Unemployed Professors offers college and university students a full range of academic jobs, including the following:
- research paper
- term paper
- essay writing of all types and topics
- case study
- homework help
- laboratory report
- thesis and dissertation
- review and analysis
- other academic work
The company boasts that it is better than others because it employs only professors - those who have been in college classrooms and assigned students' papers and essays.
Prices and discounts
The company has no set prices for all types of custom writing. This business model is becoming increasingly popular, but is not familiar to many students. Basically, a student registers with the company and then posts information about their writing needs. The student will be asked to provide all the details of the order. Once the order is placed, the registered writers offer the student their suggestions.
The student reviews the proposals, perhaps talks to several candidates, and then chooses a writer to do the work. From this point, there is a discussion board through which the student and writer can communicate - both remain anonymous.
Once the essay, paper, or other custom project is completed, the student will receive the product and either approve it or ask for changes as needed.
Due to the business model, there are no discounts available. The student, of course, can negotiate a price with the author if he or she has such skills.
When a price is agreed upon, the student deposits the payment into an account and then gives it back to the writer when he or she is satisfied with the product.
Suggestions and extras
Unemployed professors reddit is very clear about what all other writing services offer as "extras" - title page, bibliography, etc. They are standard on all academic papers. They are part of the standard package of all academic papers produced by their authors and are not considered extras. Any other additional services the client may need should be negotiated with the selected author.
Quality of the paper
It is difficult to assess the quality of writing without samples. We have made a rather public appeal to clients of this company to provide us with copies of student papers they have received from these authors. Fortunately, we received several responses and were able to assess the quality of one research paper, one book review, and one custom essay.
Our overall impression was that these papers were well structured and reflected scholarly writing. We saw no signs of writing in a foreign language.
