    • The Eazl team continues to add value to your learning experience. In version 6 of the course, you have access to a brand new series of animations that make full use of Udemy's new assignments feature and a new section on designing a longer-term career plan.

    • Udemy's Assignments enable you to receive guided instructions, use your skills, and then see how your instructor does something. We've leveraged this feature by taking the most challenging parts of the Career Hacking™ course and making them easier for you through the use of these guided assignments. For example, when you reach the point in the course where you need to develop bulletpoints for your resume / CV, you'll find an animated Assignment that takes you through the process step-by-step, gives you a chance to develop your own resume bulletpoint using what you've learned in the course, and then shows you how it's done by your instructor.

    • Many of you have also asked for help developing a mid and long-term career plan. In version 6, we've added an additional section to help you. First, you'll learn soft skills that will help you transition to working with a new team and/or at a new job. Then you will have the opportunity to use the VISTA career planning tool that we've built for you so that you can align your values, interests, skills, and more with your career goals.

    • One of the new videos that we've added for you is an interview with Stephen Szermer, someone who successfully completed a big mid-life career change. His story will help anyone who is in a career rut, needs to change careers, or feels like the world has evolved past their existing skill set. We hope you enjoy Career Hacking™ version 6.

  • January 7th, 2019: What's new in version 6.1?

    • We've migrated some of the guides and course tools to Google Drive so that they're usable across all of your devices and easier to use than .pdfs.

  • April 9th, 2019: What's new in version 6.2?

    • You all are amazing. We want to harness the collective power of the Career Hacking™ community to make the course better for you and other future students, so we've added the ability for you to contribute your ideas related to new content and course features through a simple, anonymous feedback mechanism. Thanks for working with us to make your learning experience awesome.

  • June 21st, 2019: What's new in version 6.3? We've just made a HUGE upgrade to your course. Specifically, we:

    • Remastered all videos in the course. We realize that, over the years, we exported videos with varying volume levels. This was causing some of you to have to frequently adjust the volume settings on your playback devices, so Davis spent time remastering the volume across the entire Career Hacking™ learning experience.

    • We've heard many of you ask for additional support with mid and later-life career changes, so Davis spent quite a lot of time creating a comprehensive presentation specifically tailored to the needs of people going through a mid or later-life career change. You can find this presentation in the text lecture where all of the course resources are listed and in a special optional lecture in the career strategy section of the course.

    • The LinkedIn® Power Game is now a fundamental part of your learning experience. Previously, it was an optional video. We did this because being able to engage in professional networking on LinkedIn® is increasingly important for many careers.

    • Davis migrated two videos that were previously presented in-stream in the course to optional videos. The first video that has been converted to optional viewing is one on tips for people going into a coding interview and the second is for Career Hackers looking to get a US Visa. Because these are specialized scenarios, we want to make sure that they're taken by those who need them, not everyone who participates in Career Hacking™.

  • November 1, 2019: What's new in version 6.4?

    • You've asked and we've delivered.  Career Hacking™ is now fully closed captioned in English so that you can clearly understand key Career Hacking™ concepts and so that students whose first language isn't English can have a fuller learning experience and develop their English skills while taking the course.

    • We're introducing a suite of Voices from the Field lectures. This lecture style is something that Davis learned while participating in Harvard's Leaders of Learning program. In each lecture, we pose an important career management question to experts with a variety of professional expertise and backgrounds so that you can get multiple informed viewpoints on these topics. In this update, we feature experts with experience in technical recruiting, in placing candidates looking for work after receiving professional certificates, in helping MBA graduates get jobs, in coaching executives in Silicon Valley, and in breaking into the financial services sector. Thanks for joining us in the Career Hacking™ course.

  • January 4, 2020: What's new in version 6.5?

    • When you're searching for a job, keeping records of your applications and managing your professional network are super important. Previously, we showed you how to take care of these problems using Podio® as your "Job Search CRM" platform. However, Podio® is really designed to be used by teams for much more complex activities, so Davis Jones, this course's designer, built a custom tool for Career Hacking™ participants that's built on top of Google Sheets and Google Apps Script. It's called the Career Hacking™ Hub. This free software keeps all of your information private (essentially, it's a modified Google Sheet that you own), and it pairs perfectly with what you learn in your Career Hacking™ learning experience. You should find this tool convenient, free, and helpful. You can learn more about it inside the course. We're always trying to add value for you and to support your success.  Welcome to Career Hacking™ 6.5.

  • January 14, 2020: What's new in version 6.5.1?

    • Your fellow Career Hacker David Williamson contributed a valuable new career hack related to uncovering small and medium-sized businesses who don't often advertise higher-level positions publicly. It's been added in the description of the "Hidden Job Market" module. Thanks David.

  • March 13th, 2020: What's new in version 6.5.2?

    • You'll find a new SideBySide that walks you through using the new Career Hacking™ Hub App. This should enable you to get up and running with the newest technology feature of the Career Hacking™ course quickly.

  • April 20th, 2020: What's new in version 6.5.3?

    • We've started responding to the Coronavirus pandemic by adding additional resources to your Career Hacking™ experience.

I have not even completed the course, but I did get through the resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn sections and I am already getting bombarded with emails and calls for positions.

CV and cover letter writing, interview skills, etc.

CV is not cover letter, but this is good, general information to know.

I've gotten so many interviews and potential job offers just from following the instructions for my resume, cover letters, and linkedin profile!

Now I feel really comfortable in writing resume and cover letters.

Makes you confident and gives you an ability to think on a different level about your resume, cover letter, interviews and many other useful topics.

However, the course carry a lots of valid and useful information which for sure will boost my resume, cover letter, linkedin profile hence I recommend to anyone interested in this subject to buy it.

I would recommend this course to anyone who is really looking to upgrade their resume, cover letter, linkedin profile, interviewing skills and networking capabilities.

I found the course to be great and really useful in multiple areas, be it on cover letters, resumes, LinkedIn building, networking explanations.

After being in the same job for past 11 years, this course has helped me re-brand myself and craft customized resumes and cover letters for job hunting.

Bear in mind that I have modified my cover letter to suit the culture of the geographic area I live in :) Thank you Team EAZL, you are touching lives and making a positive difference one at a time :) The use of visuals was very engaging and showed that the creators really made an effort to make this course exceptional.

Fantastic course, well worth the money to sign up - excellent work!

The prompt needs to be moved to at least the half way point, otherwise this was well worth the money I spent and would recommend it as a great refresher course or even for someone who is just trying to figure out the process of today's job seeking market.

Overall, this is an excellent course and I think it is definitely worth the money I paid for it.

sound effects in 10 reviews

too much cartoony sound effects making it very hard to pay attention to the material.

Not giving a full 5 stars as I found a presenter (Mr. Jones) quite annoying at times, also some animation, music and sound effects choices were kind of weird.

Although there are more "normal" videos than there are infested with "sound effects".

What I really liked is the way they present their topics(fun animations, sound effects), they have tried their best to cover every thing in short time.

Some people have mentioned that the visuals and sound effects are distracting, but I got used to them pretty quickly and came to like them.

Vocals are lost in the background music and loud sound effects.

The course contains powerful animations and sound effects to help you understand topics clearly and instructor is really very engaging.

Copious animations and sound effects are supposed to help sustain my interest (as is explained in an earlier video in the course), but all they do is deflect my attention from what is actually being communicated.

I don't need visuals and accompanying sound effects of robots shooting lasers to retain my interest in learning how to properly utilize keywords in drafting my resume.

I love the sound effects of it too.

hard to hear in 5 reviews

While this is happening, the sound effects stay the same, making it very hard to hear him at times.

The Skype "interviews" with other people were contrived, poorly executed, and hard to hear.

Audio lets this course down as its very hard to hear in some modules.

Audio is hard to hear but the content is good.
