This class was OK. It includes mainly basic information, but is a good reinforcement of the principles of writing a cover letter. If you need a refresher with cover letters, then sure, take this short class. However, the professionalism of the instructor is extremely lacking. Within the slides, there are a number of grammatical mistakes (which is what you DON'T want to see from a supposed expert discussing a letter you will present to prospective employers), which sends the message that she isn't serious about this topic. Then, she proceeds to use slang terms ("Dope" was used numerous times) to discuss the topic, which is just off-putting. Maybe she's trying to connect with a college-aged crowd, but it comes off as silly and doesn't convey the importance of this step in a job hunt. It also sends the message to this younger crowd that using slang in business is OK, which is horrible advice for anyone in an interview mindset.
very thorough and easy to follow along course!
This class includes necessary information relevant to writing a cover letter. However, it suffers from a distinct lack of examples that could help to show how to put the discussed theory into practice. Still good though.
