So, we've built a brand new step-by-step guide, new SideBYSides, and new content around the changes that have been made to the Platform. Also, we've upgraded to the 2.0 suite of Eazl Resume Templates and to support the upgrade, there are new 2.0 sample resumes and hands-on content to support the upgrade. If you enjoy the great upgraded content from our team here at Eazl, please tell your friends that this course is a reliable, trusted partner in any job search!
November 3rd, 2018: What's new in Version 6? 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 our new assignments lectures and a new section on designing a longer-term career plan.
- Assignments enable you to receive guided instructions, use your skills, and then see how your instructor does something. We've leveraged this new lecture style 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 15th, 2019: What's new in version 6.3? We've heard many of you ask for additional support with mid and later-life career changes, so Davis from our team 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.
