The Need to Acquire Job Skills and Where to Get Them

In today’s job market where the job landscape is changing, it will be helpful for people to acquire new skills.

It will help job-seekers to reach out to employers and, as Terry Brock states, “Find those skills that employers need and learn those skills” (Brock, 2017).

While readers have often heard that advice many times, there frequently seems to be a knowledge gap in where to find new skills.  However, the good news is, in the digital age in which we live, there are a variety of websites, some free and some fee-based, where people can acquire new skills.

A scenario would be that a job-seeker has done some informational interviewing with an employer, and the employer has told the job-seeker the skills that are needed to work in the company.  Based on that conversation, job-seekers can look through the websites below to acquire new skills or refresh old skills.  Even if you have not done informational interviewing but you know the type of skills your industry needs, the Web sites below can help you acquire those skills.  You can then list the classes you have successfully completed on your resume to show to employers, or network with employers and tell them you have completed industry-specific courses.

Lynda.com

Lynda can be accessed for free through the Memphis Public Library by using your library card.  There are over 3,400 courses covering many topics at the beginner, intermediate, or advanced level.  Topics include, but are not limited to, Business, Design, Developer, Information Technology, Marketing, Web, Photography, and Video.  At the end of some courses you can print a certificate.  There are also exercise files to practice your learning.
