    Great class with insights into the personal psychology of acing an interview. The teacher was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The one thing that was a little different: The class takes place at an IT/Project Management/Quality Assurance school, and all people attending the workshop other than me were students from that school -- so it was a little weird being in a group of people who were all aiming for finding a job in a different industry than I was. Still, I'm glad I went and left with some good takeaways.

    Well structured class , making professionals instrumental in interview skills
    This class helped professionals to stay in a confident and relax state of mind while being interviewed and also it did talk about a lot of myths that are the main reason why people become more nervous .
    All in all this class boosted the confidence of people and prepared them by giving tips to set their goals and achieve them.

Definitely do the homework sent out ahead of the workshop, and be prepared to present yourself in front of the class based on that homework! Also the class seemed to be geared very heavily towards the corporate world, which I didn't realize going into it.","teacher_response":null}

      I came into this class with some experience from the job I am currently in. The instructor for this course did a good job of trying to cover overall, general project management thought-process and practices. It is helpful if you are interested in the department or want to be more familiar with the terminology.

      The teacher was really good at helping people applying their situations to project management. The class moves quickly but it time also goes by quickly. Despite my informal work exprience with project management,I felt a lot more equipped and confident about my current skills and areas to grow.

I work in higher ed, so I was not familiar with, nor do I have, any \"formal\" project management experience/training. The class was full of people who were in IT, different types of firms ... definitely corporate/private sector jobs. So for about a second I was concerned, but soon realized that I would benefit from the class. The instructor does move quickly, but once I was in the groove, I was able to keep up with the quick pace. \r\n\r\nThe instructor is direct and can come off as a bit gruff, but I don't think she is actually harsh or mean. I think she is just a direct person who is task oriented .... I mean she IS teaching a project management class after all. She answered questions and stayed behind to talk to people who wanted to discuss things one-on-one with her. She is knowledgeable and I think genuinely likes teaching and helping others out. Just be prepared for a person who is ready to get the business at hand done, and less of a fuzzy, warm, hearts and rainbows type of teacher.","teacher_response":null}

I felt like it was very hands-on and structured to make sure that all of the individuals in the class got a little bit of what they came to hear. The instructor was able to frame her talking points in a bunch of different ways so that we could all understand them regardless of what our personal backgrounds were. For a subject that could be a little dry, the time went really fast. I feel like I got what I was looking for: an intro to what project management is and the framework to be able to judge what else I still need to learn.","teacher_response":null}

Since I am a project manager I was familiar with the terms and concepts already, but the class gave me perspective outside of my current role and helped me re-frame how I am approaching challenges in the projects I am working on. It was also really neat to see who is interested in project management outside of my industry.","teacher_response":null}
