In the words of myself , i would say "Coursera" is certainty an highly professional educative platform to learn about academic and non academic lessons. I'm pretty much pleased with their lessons.

The information provided here are very helpful. Being a varsity student, it is really helpful to have some initial ideas about resume before graduation.But it should have included more interactive projects, more videos with experts.

Very good about pointing out general information. There was some information that I don't feel was covered about specifics to formatting and wording.

It will not take 4 weeks at all.

It is a very helpful course overall!

This course is good but not enough. It's just a brief review of how to write a resume because it doesn't discuss and explain each part of resume in detail.

All in all, thank you for the course.

I think it is better if the course is more practical, like showing us how exactly the way to create a resume, rather than just explanation all the sessions.

It covered all the basics, and explained things well. However, I would have liked more feedback on my actual resume, and I didn't find it very helpful.

This course does not allow us to answer the assignments without purchasing the course instead they should allow us to do so.

To me, the most difficult task of Resume making is editing and creating. At least one draft should be shown.
