I liked the pace of this course [Job Developer], and some of the feedback from other students was insightful and relevant, and I came away with some good tips. I also liked most of the "tip sheets" and found some useful content. The assignments encouraged creative thinking, which made them interesting to do. I appreciated that the textbook readings were short and to the point, though for me much of the content was very general and didn't add much to my learning (I have worked in this field for a number of years - I think someone brand new to the field would have gotten more out of the course in general). The "theories" section of the course was the part that for me really stood out as needing an overhaul - there were way too many theories presented far too briefly, and so then to ask us to apply these theories seemed an exercise doomed to be superficial. I'd recommend a quality over quantity approach and pare down the list of theories to just a handful of the most significant. If I were to suggest an addition, I'd like to have seen a section on trends in resumes and cover letters, since this is a practical part of the job that I deal with everyday (far more often than some of the other topics covered).
Great course, every service provider working with the public should take this training.
Jayne has taught this old gal new things that I thought I already knew. She is a great instructor and provides excellent constructive criticisms to benefit your future. Thanks Jayne, keep up the great work!
Unlike many online programs I have taken or enrolled in, the website is very user friendly, instructors are supportive and reachable, always offering reflective and constructive feedback. I learned to write a lot of tip sheets in this courses.
Kristine was amazing, accommodating and understanding. She is a great asset to your team.
I learned a great deal of information. We have to take this course and I think its a great place to take it. I like that it can be done in 2 weeks via distance as we live in a remote, isolated community.
This course was an amazing overall experience,
it supported and facilitated my learning and allowed me to learn the
fundamental Career Development Foundations, Emerging Theories and Models. I was
very impressed with the ease and flow of the course and would definitely
recommend it to any Career Counselor seeking to broaden their knowledge.
