Good, quick info which was straight to the point. I like the format of sessions which are not long. Other course may have combined 5 or 6 sessions into one.

Candace14 April 2021

There is content in this course that I never even knew I needed to learn. I have a hard time interviewing, not being able to talk about myself or answer those hard interview questions. You can't find this valuable of information anywhere else. If you are struggling with interviews, getting bounced back, and not having the confidence you need to interview effectively. You Need To Learn From This Course. Investing in yourself is beyond valuable. Watch this course, take notes, download the printable guides, and change the game from I need this job - to I have options and I can pick from jobs.
