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.

By doing this course now I can differentiate between resume and cv although they have a little bit difference.If you are a jobseeker you have to inform your particular information on your resume.I hope this course will help anyone to make a well established resume.Here the videos and quiz are well enough understandable with great instructors.

It was an average course and the contents can be found if searched a bit.

Though few things which were good to learn were:

> Transferable skills

> Resume for particular job description

> Different types of resumes

> Difference between CV and resume

It's always good to get all the information at one place but by searching we learn more.

Has some great tips for writing a resume, but I think there's a lot of mistakes in the platform's programming. For example, since the course's grades are divided into two quizzes (of 50% each), by the time you complete the second quiz you're given the certificate, even though you're not even halfway through the course.

The content was good but I found it difficult to navigate thru the different weeks. Also, I got my course certificate without even completing the course. This is a big technical glitch and you guys should resolve it ASAP otherwise your courses are just useless pieces of paper, of no value to anyone.

Peer-centered course, which I expected the instructors to be more hands-on but weren't. I'd recommend this course to anyone who doesn't have a formal or professional resume yet or looking to start their first resume. The videos are insightful and I would save them if I could to share.

Some good information here. It's mostly geared to college students. I'm older and looking for a career change, so I with there was something more geared towards that. I passed the class, however my resume was never actually reviewed.

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.

Genearlly it helps but I hope it would be much better if you have chances to review resume from each other and receive feedback. Thank you.

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.

Some good information in the course and the reading pdfs are very good. The rest was waste.
