I found out the course very substantial, factful and extremely usefull for those who are going to prepeare for job interview. The lessons, videos and texts inside are not long that make study easy to access, understand and follow. It seems that high class professionals worked out the course, thank you a lot! Hugs

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.

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

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.

Olivia completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
The course is really interesting and provides very useful information on how to face interviews and test when applying for jobs. I found the course really easy to follow except for the example test. I would I did not understand how to answer them. I would say if participants have the opportunity to deliver the answer and receive a feedback would be nice. Thank you so much for all your help.

It is really great course and free of cost being its cutting edge. It covers almost every curve of the sphere be it personal interview , telephonic or may be video one. it gives the feel and level of competency and to deal with them. but there is always room for improvement so it is needed in the section of the dressing. but overall this course is great. Cheers to University of Sheffield.

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.

Spot-on tips, this is a complete course with everything you need to know to improve on your interview skills.

Interviews will always require preparation of course, so completing this course is only the start.

But surely all the preparation required is highlighted clearly in this course.

Really good course. It is very thorough and has a lot of insightful insights that can help a candidate with their interview process. I love that the course includes all the different stages of an interview and the different situations a candidate can find themselves in.

The course is well executed, informative and provides knowledge on everything that the interview process may consist of. The discussion, as well as the exercises also allow us to provide our views and show our understanding of what was learnt.

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.
