TESTIMONIALS

Who the team have helped

I attended the "CV & Interview Masterclass" with AstroLabs, and it was astonishing to me, starting with the amazing content and amazing instructors, as it was a turning point in my career as it opened new opportunities, and helped me to land a new job just after one month.
The course covered all the aspects of the recruitment process. unlike articles and videos I tried to follow, "CV & Interview Masterclass" connected the dots, starting with Linkedin profile review and how to write it, CV writing, how to prepare for interviews.
I recommend "CV & Interview Masterclass" if you are actively looking for a new opportunity, or even if you don’t it will give you a head start.
