Knowledge is power. You don’t know what you don’t know, so engage in continuous lifelong learning to improve yourself and your skill sets.
In April 2015, Linkedin purchased a platform called Lynda.com and then subsequently rolled it into what is now called LinkedIn Learning. As of April 2018, there is no additional charge for the learning platform for those who have the following paid accounts: 1) Premier Career, 2) Premier Business, 3) Executive, 4) Sales Navigator Professional, or 5) Recruiter Lite. You will notice the Learning icon in the top right hand part of your profile page and can access it there.
You can learn about software, business, technology, or creative skills to reach your future career goals. When you complete certain courses or any of the over 70 learning paths, LinkedIn will allow you to download the certificates of completion on your profile.
As a nonprofit leader, volunteer, or jobseeker, you might want to take a look at nonprofit.courses, which is run by Matt Hugg, who is one of three chapter leaders for the Nonprofit Career Network (NCN) Philly chapter of the Philadelphia Area Great Careers Group. The next meeting is Thurs March 12th in Lansdale at 8:30 AM. The topic of discussion over (buy your own) breakfast will be Nonprofit Board Recruitment and you can sign up here bit.ly/NCNPhilly.
Although there are many many other learning platforms out there, this is a pretty good list that will get you started on the road to self-improvement! Happy learning!
