Ariana Spencer liked this class and said...

Wow! This course covered everything I needed to begin revamping my resume. Resume writing has always been very hard for me as I never know how to articulate my skills and accomplishments that would make me stand out to employers. Greg walked through everything step by step and shared really great tips and examples for how to write effective bullet points, how to format everything, and the sample resume file was really helpful too. Really great course!!
