Here is a review from the first student to complete my course:

"WOW. For how relatively short this course is (a few hours), it has everything I was looking for and much more. Katelyn explains everything with clear, concise real-world examples. There are a lot of great pdf's to download with each section of the course that are super useful; checklists, exercises, common questions, etc. Just fantastic. What's even more awesome is there's a whole section of the course devoted to the technical part of the interview. I liked how there were exercises to do along the way that can be used and stored for your own interviews/interview prep. In addition I really liked how there were some hints/examples of things you could say in response to some of the questions in the exercises to help get your creative juices going, extremely helpful. Overall a fantastic and invaluable course I would recommend to anyone." - Justin H.
