I loved it, I learned a lot, it seems very good for people who just recently got to the United States, I have lived in the States for over 25 years and I have worked for corporate America, however I learned a lot since I haven't had to look for job in many years, this helped my with learning what is important nowadays. I would love to see a course for more senior workers.

prepare person properly before applying job . I m Undergraduate and have no plans of joining job before completing my graduation but i think it was very important to learn all these things at this point of time so that we could also work on resume building.

I deducted one star because price of this certificate is high according to me.

Teachers speak slow. Scripts for all videos could be seen (I found this function after I had passed the half). So, it is ideal for learners of basic English. The initial course looks start early, but some materials have added until recently. If you are interested in career development in the States, why not take this?

Es bueno tener el conocimiento de las funciones del empleo en otros paises, en especial si se tiene pensado ir a trabajar a otro pais. El curso en si es muy bueno.

It is good to get the knowledge of how other countries work based on the work field, specially when you are thinking of working in another country.

A good course for people without professional experience or few years of experience. For experient workers is a perfect opportunity to practice english, if you are an experient worker with advanced level in english, the course could be a little weak.

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.
