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 was a great course, "a must do" for those who have done interviews before, and those who haven't, and are looking for job opportunities or have already applied for the job, waiting for the feedback from the recruiters.

I have learnt a lot from this course. The information given to us was very comprehensive with practical examples on how to tackle interview questions.

The materials provided are very resourceful indeed! A big thank you to Sheffield University and Future Learn team for designing such a great course. I enjoyed every bit of the learning through out the three weeks.

I have not applied for jobs for over 20 years ( been in the same nhs position for many years) due to raising my children and working part time. Indeed, as my children are older, I am wishing to take on different challenges but my confidence to apply for jobs and go for a interview was very low. However, following this course, it has provided me with the confidence, tools and advice to move forward in my career! Can’t recommend high enough!

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.

The information is given is a very structured and consistent way. The course gives insider's information on how HR perceive the candidates which explains some questions/features of interviews and removes a great deal of the candidates' anxiety... I also find that the course gives a sufficient amount of examples and allows to practice in each of the topics discussed. Overall the course is much more than satisfying.

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.

It is a good solid course that gives you a lot of useful information on the interviews. Some information was not new to me, whereas many points were eye-opening.

After being out of my marketing career for two years whilst travelling, I was nervous about my interview. This course provided me with a structured way to prepare and got me thinking about the little attentions to detail that would really make a difference.

I felt really prepared and confident and I got the job!
