Who this course is NOT for:

This course is NOT for highly-experience interviewees in mid to upper management or leadership roles that want more sophisticated interview tips and strategies.

This course is NOT for those who want long lectures and a lot information (our aim is to help busy professionals to get the essentials as fast as possible).

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
