Everything was useful. From CV content and Cover letters, even helping me on relating my skills to the internship program I am applying for.

Got the things sorted where I was confused …

The thought process of getting to where you want was very helpful. Elevator pitches are great 🙂

It has helped us to be more confident and professional while telling about yourself in an interview.

The advice,  tips and hints I was given were extremely helpful. And the follow-up support is great.

My LinkedIn profile and how to make it more interesting. Thank you.
