This course is a fairly outdated one. Reading through some of the articles made me feel as though I was reading business self help books from the 1970's. There were underlying themes of ageism and sexism in some of the material. A consistent, "millennials" need to learn how to be in the work force" message, when realistically Gen Z is entering the professional sphere now. It showcased how out of touch some of these suggestions were. A lot of "pull yourself up by your own bootstraps" or one off motivational speakers. The last two weeks of material felt as though the instructors had forgotten the material was due the day before and padded it out using TED and TEDx talks, and broken links.

This course is beautifully made. It is made with professor's less regular teaching. It is more with reading and TEDx specific things taken. Each and everyone who is in career should take this course, and complete with full energetic approach.

Nice course, but it has a few broken links and therefore no article is found.

Even though the content of the course is interesting, it is still general definitions that makes difficult to apply on a daily basis (like watching most of the TedX talks). It sure helps and I enjoyed watching and reading, but applying is the difficult part. This course helps.

The course is not bad, but reveals. in general. obvious/elementary information. To my mind. this course is for novices who just beginning their career way. But it is worth to passing it for experienced workers too to achive some real crutial information of Successful Career Development/

The content of the course is outdated! Some lectures provide links to external websites and articles that do not exist anymore. Moreover, most of the content of the course is a sum-up of TED videos or online articles you can find on Google. I expected to receive a lot of original content, and that is not what I got...

I still learned 1 or 2 usefull tips tough.

There were a lot of modules that had contents we engage in but not always particular and intentional about them. Also the various skills that are required like updating Linkedin, Having Authentic relationships, Netweaving and Asking for Help are all very relevant today in building successful careers.

I was very impressed. I've been working on my self-development and professional development for 2 full years now. Thanks to Coursera I could realise even more areas that I was lacking in terms of how to reach my ultimate goal! Today I have a very important interview, and what I'm taking from this course? THE COFFEE TIME! Develop trust first thing first, something that my boss used to same to me, but when I started this course I could comprehend the why, and now it sticks to my skin! Thanks Coursera!

I want to say that this course is a great one for anyone just beginning his/her career and for mid-career individuals who are seeking to climb the professional ladder or switch over to a new career. I believe the course will mostly help those who are seeking to choose a career path and become an expert in that path.
