Just reading from slides and there is no deep explanation regarding each point of discussion. Overall it is awesome

Richard17 September 2020

This is perhaps one of the most succinct, yet well rounded courses I've had the privilege of taking on Udemy. Davis explains concepts clearly, without any fluff or convolution. The resources included in the study guide are very templatable, strong tools to carry with you as you embark on your career, and provide excellent insights into the practical use of the concepts described within the course.

Sudarshan2 February 2020

It is a very user friendly course to get idea about recruiting and talent acquisition, even if you have no background about hiring process. I just feel they should have elaborated few points like mail-merge and boolean search to get in-depth idea about these features.

Branko27 January 2020

The course was really quality oriented. You get a quick glimpse of what you need as a recruiter. Even the intermediate recruiters can learn something new and useful.

Oleksandra22 January 2020

The course was great! I like the way the author spoke and a high quality of videos. A lot of useful information, but I feel like its more for beginners, because of superficial information

Rashi15 January 2020

The course is very small and limited in nature but this is what is it expected to be. A very basic information at a very high level on the recruiting and talent acquisition areas. This course is very good for somebody who wants to make a switch into these areas and make an understanding on the basics before starting further enhanced journey of learning or on the job. I would say Good job EAZL.
