A Great Refreshing New Perspective on Career Advancement
This is really a great course for everyone who wants to advance in their careers. I always thought that career success is always about climbing the corporate ladder but after this course, I realized that it's really all about taking opportunities that suit you best... not necessarily being paid more or getting to be called "Sir" by everyone in the workplace. Thank you for this lecture.. really helps in understanding how to approach each and every career opportunity.

In a Career Transition
Forced to look outside my chosen profession for employment, I am in the process of getting a PMP certification, to better position myself in the marketplace. I feel well equipped and more at ease after taking this course. One of many key things for me was taking the time to fill out the "Self-Assessment" download that the instructor provides. My goals are clear now and I feel confident that I'll achieve them!

Edward Lee

Each lecture was extremely informative. I was able to get added insight regarding issues that I'm already aware of. I viewed all thirteen lectures and there are two sections that I concentrated on specifically, such as  #4-Pitfalls That Stall Your Career Advancement and #6-What You Should Know - Tips From An HR Insider. Overall, I am very impressed with the wealth of information given in this series regarding today's workplace.
