Description: This course focuses on six core areas: Self-awareness, skills awareness, career readiness, developing a resume and a personal brand, making a strong impression, and building a network. Unlike many MOOCs, this course does not include any formal assessments. Instead, it consists of short videos, slideshows, readings, exercises and questionnaires. In addition, it will rely heavily on peer feedback to help students identify best practices and measure their progress.

Review: “There are lots of paper materials you will try. The purpose is that you will find more about yourself. It is like phycological approach. Professors and some other human resources worker gives you the idea that is full of usefulness.”
