"The course is presented in great way, everything is almost perfect. Using some real cases in explaining some point is really good. The information which are presented are well organized so it is easy to remember."

"Thanks for your inputs. I will remember to be a little bit boring (won't crack too many jokes) and go detail out the stories of certain situations related to my abilities. It was a fun workshop and got to know the little things I need to change in my CV. Thanks again!

"I re-wrote my c.v. and have received two replies after two applications. Thank you so much for your excellent course."

Your Interview Preparation

There are a lot of things to think about when it comes to your job interviews. However, obeying this simple rule can be the difference between success or failure.

Even something as simple as asking yourself what your goal is can help you get into the right frame of mind for the interview process. It's about avoiding that reactive state that we're all used to (thanks to social media etc) and getting in a 'proactive' state to ensure we are fully prepared.
