Really interesting course and great trainerMar 16

Thank you, Maria, for this nice course. Being already in the process of updating my various professional profiles, Maria's course really enlightened what we should and could do to make sure our profiles really attract the clients/SPs who we actually aim to work for. Giving examples within the participants' profile, we could really visualise what should be done. I will definitely send her an email with further questions.

Valuable insights into the way worksMar 16

I signed up for this course because I'm a new member, and I wanted to make sure I get the most from my membership. Maria chose my profile as one of three to review in depth during the webinar, and I came away with a whole list of improvements to make. Maria does a great job of explaining how directory searches work and how to stand out to clients looking through the directory. I think I definitely will be able to bump up my ranking in search results and attract more jobs once I make all the recommended improvements to my profile.
