43 FREE Career Advancement Courses

summerA list of 43 free on-line courses all offered by reputable sources (e.g. Stanford and MIT) caught my eye as a resource for highly skilled clients.

Often, our clients crave educational credentials.  These courses don’t build credits toward a degree, but employers value fresh skills.  Learning something new demonstrates initiative, motivation and follow-through, all of which are marketable “soft” workplace skills.  For our clients, topping an unconventional resume with U.S.-based experience or training can make a big difference.

All 43 courses fall into these seven categories:

  1. Programming
  2. Design
  3. Online Marketing
  4. Communications
  5. Entrepreneurship
  6. Writing
  7. A second language

On closer inspection, they might be useful for you, too.  Click here for the list.

Although Lynda.com isn’t one of the providers on the list, that’s another great source of high-quality courses.  It’s free for a month trial, then offered at a reasonable monthly fee you can cancel whenever you’re finished.
