Overall Rating:

The classes are very good, they prepare you with the proper skills. I'm very satisfied with the class and instruction. The career planning need some work as far as using material pertaining to job search. I believe it needs to concentrate more on resume and less on classroom activities. I feel I had what was necessary as far as class instruction goes. Need less power points and less essays. More on concentrating on job and interview practice.
