I appreciated the materials, quizzes, and samples presented in this course. However, I hope that it could still add more interactive lessons, as most of the enrollees in this course are students and have no work experience.

I would say if you do take it serious, you could always learn from it more or less.

It's a bit slow tho, the difficulty of all the quiz could be be level up a bit if you ask me.

The course is very interesting, since through it you learn to make your resume, the cover letter, the elevator speech and to prepare the interviews. The only downside is that the level of English is a bit low.

It was a great help for everyone who is looking for a job, and being prepared, however it would be better if the teachers have the possibility to grade or give feedback, not just the students.
