His content was good. I liked the way he focused on the point of the resume is to get you the interview. He also did a good job at trying to get you to think about what the employer wants and developing your resume accordingly. The assessments could use improvement. The questions and answers were worded in a confusing manner. And the peer reviews were dependent on having peers available to review your work or having work for you to review, which delayed my progress. For a course like this, there should be straight forward assessments that test your understanding of the content, and I think there is room for improvement here.

Useful but the way the instructor presents the lectures can be more creative.

I am not planning on completing this course. I went through the material for the first week and did not find it useful at all. In fact, I found it quite demoralizing. I also found the required exercises absolutely too invasive and personal to submit and share with complete strangers, so that is why I do not plan to continue.
