This course was didn't take up too much of my time. Having steps made it easier to view my progress and to see what activities were coming up next. I was very nervous about interviews but taking this course has made me very confident that I will know how to handle the situation, especially when I get stressed. It gave a wide range of information that I will need to consider before an interview and I think it covered everything I needed to know.

The course is really interesting and provides very useful information on how to face interviews and test when applying for jobs. I found the course really easy to follow except for the example test. I would I did not understand how to answer them. I would say if participants have the opportunity to deliver the answer and receive a feedback would be nice. Thank you so much for all your help.

Very good course with lots of useful and practical materials to use during a learning process and having a possibility to save these materials on your own computer for later use. I think it is really helpful and useful to take this course prior to any type of the interview.

I found the course to be helpful in providing information on how to prepare for interviews and what to expect in them. It was also informative in explaining the various forms interviews can take and the techniques which can be used during the interviews.

Thank you. Fairly basic stuff, I suppose, but essential for someone who hasn't been on the job market for some time.

This course outlines what to do before an interview, gives suggestions on answering questions in a typical interview format, and also gives advice related to some other common interview types. All the information is clearly explained and the suggestions are very practical and sensible.

I'd recommend this course to anyone who is worried about their interview technique and especially those who have little or no experience of interviews.

I found the course very interesting and insightful. The presentation was very simple and straight to the point while the course settings were very easy to navigate.

The course instructors provided practical and very relevant templates, model interview questions and situational quizzes to work with thereby aiding further and better understanding of the course.

I would say a big thank you to the Team!

It is really great course and free of cost being its cutting edge. It covers almost every curve of the sphere be it personal interview , telephonic or may be video one. it gives the feel and level of competency and to deal with them. but there is always room for improvement so it is needed in the section of the dressing. but overall this course is great. Cheers to University of Sheffield.

Wow! I enjoyed this class. I learnt a lot about preparing for the interview, the interview itself, different things to expect at an interview, appearance and how to finish an interview. Maybe I wouldn't have lot some jobs if i had gone through this course previously. I learnt about emotional intelligence on the job and during an interview.

Thank you for a job well done.

This is an easy to access and flexible course that has quickly brought me up to date with the contemporary ways in which employers interview and what I need to do to prepare for the big day. Thanks for the easy and accessible break down of tasks that I could work through at my own pace and for the access to other peoples thoughts and comments on the forum.

I found the course easy to follow, full of great information and very motivational.

I thought the various short videos were really well put together (especially the 'what to wear to an interview' and 'facial expressions' videos).

Now it's up to me to put my learning into action :)

Thanks very much.

Spot-on tips, this is a complete course with everything you need to know to improve on your interview skills.

Interviews will always require preparation of course, so completing this course is only the start.

But surely all the preparation required is highlighted clearly in this course.

For the last 4 weeks, I've been applying for jobs, getting shortlisted but then not getting anywhere in the interviews. This course has really helped me with preparing and hopefully succeeding in my next interview.

I have really enjoyed the course and found it very helpful.
