by Natacha is taking this course right now, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
I believe this course is suitable for anyone at any level of their job search. It is especially so for seasoned professionals looking to change careers. It makes you think and challenge your knowledge with little exercises. I am interested to see how I do overall in the end and how I can apply it overall in my own search.

As i didnt pay for an upgraded version i just completed the course without answering the assessment questions.

It is an ideal course for beginners and a good course for intermediate job seekers who have already made a research or attended seminars on these topics.

Useful, especially the interview part.

Clive completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Even though the course is straightforward, the material is relevant and provides a good refresher on how to prepare and perform well. I found the networking chapter particularly useful, together with the insights into how hiring managers/recruiters scan CVs.
