Student Testimonials

  • "The instructor was great and very encouraging. The entire course was very helpful. I have not had to interview in over 14 years and things have changed. I didn't know how much I didn't know until I took this course. One of the best decisions I have made and would highly recommend it." -- Arrita K.
  • "I think every single topic of this course it was extremely helpful to my needs. I never had to interview for the last 24 years therefore the course was just perfect." -- Alma H.
  • "I found the entire course useful. It was a big help to write answers out that employers ask. It was also helpful to have a list of questions to ask an employer." -- Beverly D.
  • "Everything was helpful. It's been years since I've interviewed for a job and this course helped me understand what employers are looking for today should I lose my current job. The instructor was knowledgeable and presented excellent material." -- Dorothy D.
  • "The behavioral interview was most helpful. It seems that this is now the biggest part interviewing today. The video segment that reads the lesson. Having the lesson read aloud made the entire course seem much more like an in person class rather than a dry read." -- Steve S.
  • "It's been many years since I've had to interview for jobs. With the current low economy and high unemployment, I definitely had to update my skills and knowledge about current procedures to be successful. This class has positively provided this advantage, and I feel much more confident to outshine the average candidates to get that job! Thank you for your encouragement, Susan!" -- Lauren B.
