by Nima is taking this course right now.
took this course hoping that I'd get some professional tips on promotion but was disappointed with the shallow depth of the material. it felt more like a few short basic tips that could've been compiled by any recruiter or HR personel. You can find examples of these all over the web eg. using keywords on your Linkedin and making an ifographic resumes. it might be a good starter for students with 0 experience in job hunting for anybody else it's most likely a waste of time. Plus the quality of the slides and videos are not so great which is ironic for a course that emphasizes on the quality and aesthetics of your resume and online profiles. I gave this one 1 start since in contrast to the title there is not much offered in this course related to promotions.
