This course was didn't take up too much of my time. Having steps made it easier to view my progress and to see what activities were coming up next. I was very nervous about interviews but taking this course has made me very confident that I will know how to handle the situation, especially when I get stressed. It gave a wide range of information that I will need to consider before an interview and I think it covered everything I needed to know.

Wow! I enjoyed this class. I learnt a lot about preparing for the interview, the interview itself, different things to expect at an interview, appearance and how to finish an interview. Maybe I wouldn't have lot some jobs if i had gone through this course previously. I learnt about emotional intelligence on the job and during an interview.

Thank you for a job well done.

This is an easy to access and flexible course that has quickly brought me up to date with the contemporary ways in which employers interview and what I need to do to prepare for the big day. Thanks for the easy and accessible break down of tasks that I could work through at my own pace and for the access to other peoples thoughts and comments on the forum.

Very good course with lots of useful and practical materials to use during a learning process and having a possibility to save these materials on your own computer for later use. I think it is really helpful and useful to take this course prior to any type of the interview.

I found the course to be helpful in providing information on how to prepare for interviews and what to expect in them. It was also informative in explaining the various forms interviews can take and the techniques which can be used during the interviews.

Honestly, it was a perfect course, the materials were well-organized and the templates were friendly-user.

Anyway, I was a little bit disappointed by the lack of enthusiasm and interactivity by the participants of the course.

Thank you. Fairly basic stuff, I suppose, but essential for someone who hasn't been on the job market for some time.
