    Hi guys, just wanted to check in with you all, following the class on Saturday. I know some of you were expecting something different to what you actually got, so I apologise first off if your goals were not met. Also, I had planned to make the class a little cheaper than it cost, and that was my bad for not checking the pricing before it was posted! Rest assured, the feedback you all gave me has been gratefully received and noted, and I am taking that fully on board while I redesign my notes for future Cover Letter classes, and for the upcoming Snappy CV class on March 23rd!

    Thanks to everyone for coming, giving me informative feedback, and I hope all of you learned something - I know I certainly did, and that's what it's all about, after all (-:
