JOB SEARCH TIP: What you learn after you know it all.

16 Jul

The great basketball coach John Wooden once said: “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.”

All of us can still learn, and improving your skills is a great way to use some of your time as you conduct your job search. Here are a few resources:

  • There’s this fun place you may have heard of called… a library! Call or stop by and ask what classes are available,
  • Your local community college,
  • Check out possibilities from schools from which you graduated,
  • There are lots of online courses available. An example is Coursera, and
  • There are paid sites as well, such as MasterClass.

As part of your online strategy, post what you’re learning. This could be a photo of a course completion certificate, or better yet insights you have gained. Prospective employers may value learning about what you’re learning.

There are training videos on the web site of my faith community. This content is free:
