Everone wants to make money and more money because money is never enough!
If you want to start a new career or you want to increase your streams of income then you might consider learning the following skills.
Good news is you may learn at your own convenient pace and from the comfort of your home!
Here are 5 skills you may go for:
#1 – Learn to Code and/or IT
The Odin Project is an open source project that pulls from curriculums all across the web to give you the tools it requires to become an employed web developer, including a portfolio of projects on Github. The enterprise is named the allfather of the gods in Norse mythology whose defining characteristic, above all, was curiosity for new knowledge. If you are curious about a career in computers, this course promises to take you through to the other (employably skilled) side in about 1000 hours.
#2 – SEO and/or Google Analytics
Take it from me, a lot of people are currently making their living writing for the internet and anything that you write for the internet needs to be cognizant of search engine optimization and that is a field that is CONSTANTLY changing. A good way to stay abreast of best practices as they now stand is to read a blog that posts daily on the topic. Search Engine Journal is just such a blog. They also run regular webinars on new topics and sponsor a weekly podcast, the Search Engine Nerds.
You can also take a free online course on Digital Marketing.
#3 – Better Cover Letter and Resume = Better Job
Lynda.com (run by LinkedIn) is an online course provider that offers 30 days of free access to their multitude of courses. The particular class we are interested in is in the Writing letters and resumes. This course is designed for college graduates, but many of the lessons are useful at other career points. Work in the class includes a focus on networking and establishing your personal brand. The course is approximately 90 minutes in videos and is a segment of the larger “Job Hunting for College Grads” segment.
#4 – Microsoft Excel
An unexpected hurdle in researching online Excel courses was the unhelpful design of several otherwise seemingly perfectly useful resources. Being confronted with unranked grids of data while I try to improve my skills to learn about using grids of data, sets one up for frustration. One site that avoids this pitfall is Chandoo.org, where the information is beneficially organized and free, at least for the basics. Paid components are available for those who wish to truly become “excellent” at Excel.
#5 – Human Resource Management.
This free online course from Udemy is about 75 minutes in length and titled Introduction to Human Resource Management. It is a good place to start for anyone wanting to go into general business management who is foggy on the purpose and skill set of the HR department. The special management needs of human resource departments are also covered. The course comes with a Certificate of Completion. Tips for effective HR management are the capstone element of this course.
A good number jobs are out there for the skilled. You may take advantage of your phone and search for opportunities Online.
Do not forget that you need to take action to know more and to be more or else everything will maintain the same position which includes the money you have (it could even decline).
