I HAD NO CLUE ON HOW TO WRITE OR STRUCTURE MY CV. I have learned write my CV in a attractive way and that Novoresume makes it easy to do so
This was definitely worth the watch. I picked up a lot of pointers for upgrading my CV, going to apply these. Thank you.
It was a good match very informative especially the linked in as I did not take it seriously but I now know the significance of the platform on a professional level
The content is amazing . Best course when looking to be the best in the work industry. It educates you about the importance of being a professional everywhere not only in the workplace. Social media is an important tool. Use it wisely.
The course helped a lot. Now i a have a picture of how a CV should like and that is needs to to be updated timely. I also benefited from the interview tips
Excellent course. I found the section on building a network of particular interest. The demos are also very useful. A must do course for any newcomers to the workplace.
It was straight to the point and the sections are cut into nice short segments which made it easier to go through. The additional resources are also simple and straight to the point. I feel like now I know how I want to structure my CV, how to improve my LinkedIn profile, job searching etc.
This is very insightful. Just heard about Novoresume the first time and I am going to use it. Thank you Peter.
Great advice, has definitely changed my perspective on job searching and ways to act in the work environment.
