Writing Winning Resumes and Cover Letters: 1 - 25 / 71 レビュー

Every time one hear if you are not getting an interview call then it means your resume writing skills are not excellent, you are not able to project your self, you are not able sell your self or you might be overqualified / under-qualified. If you ask them for help, 90% are not in a position to guide you, 9% would support you, provide some reasons, but you still you feel handicap. I am lucky to find my 1% who hold my hand and walked me through each stage , educated me with the explanation why to write like this way in 21st century.

In my view it is the right time everyone must gain this skill of 21st century resume and cover letter writing . We need to overwrite now, the old traditional way of resume and cover letter writing.

Thanks to Charles Duquette and Daniela C. Wagner-Loera for making this excellent course easy to understand.

Very helpful, step-by step guide in writing effective cover letter and resumes. Provide ample examples and tutor can explain topics succinctly.

This course covered the fundamentals of resume writing; however, it was somewhat outdated as it was still mentioning sending necessary application documents via snail mail (despite a discussion about ATS). What was most distressing is that I posted several questions and comments - some of which were a request for help - and never once could I find a response. Please do not set up a Discussion Forum if no one is going to monitor it and respond!

Hands down this is the best course on understanding resume writing. If you are looking for a course to understand the basics of cover letter writing and resume writing, then this is the course you absolutely need to take. The instructor, Mr. Duquette has done such a fabulous job, right from creating the content to explaining it. The language is really simple and very clearly explained (with examples). I can not thank Mr. Duquette enough for putting together this very concise and well-explanined course. I have truly learned a great deal.

This course was much more informative and helpful than I had imagined it would be. The videos were all worthwhile, along with the quizzes and assignments. For me, returning to the workforce after a prolonged absence, the insights regarding the job recruitment process in today's world were invaluable. I have been inspired, motivated and encouraged! I am very grateful I had the opportunity to study this subject, and have already signed up for the other courses related to this one.

I will highly recommend since I learned new strategy and insight into how to write Resumes, Cover Letter and Follow-Up letter and most importantly what I shouldn't do to jeopardize my chances of success. I may revisit other areas as time permits.. Thank You.

The best resumes writing course I have ever had.

The lecturer Charles Duquette is outstanding. I love his presence and charisma. I even remind me of Tywin Lannister (my favorite character in Game of Thrones)

This course is rich with extra material for me to read after the lectures.

Thank you so much for this course. I helped me a lot.

Excellent course. Very informative. Also for me as living in Germany it was very interesting to find out about some cultural differences in writting winning resumes. The course is well founded and Mr Duquette is very credible.
