What I would highlight: I just wanted to write a quick note to say thank you to International Career Institute. I embarked on this journey some time ago and I just finished my course. As I progressed through every module my confidence grew and I learnt skills which have produced some breath taking outcomes. I never knew I would enjoy a course as much as I enjoyed this one. Thank you!
What could be improved: Nothing.
