Question from Nardia H.
Is this a good class that will help me prepare my resume. What if I prefer not to use my Linkedin as I do not want my current employer to know I am looking at options to change employment.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Nardia! This is a great class for preparing a resume. You will learn from the instructor how to best use your LinkedIn as well (there is a way to use it that does not flag to your current employer that you are looking for a new job).

For someone who has been working for the same company numerous years the resume can be quite outdated. This class was very informative in preparation for my new resume. I am looking to seek other employment options and feel like this is a stepping stone.
