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 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.


Subjects range from Microsoft Office and Email to Reading, Math, Workplace Skills, and more.  There are over 180 topics, over 2,000 lessons, more than 800 videos, and more than 55 interactives and games.  All of this learning is free.  Learners can complete entire courses or view tutorials.  Classes are accredited and the program is accredited by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training.  Users can earn an Achievement of Completion certificate after viewing every page of a self-paced tutorial.  Then, the user can download and print that certificate.  The Achievement of Completion certificate is different than the Certificate of Completion learners would receive from the Online Class Program, which is accredited by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training.


Alison offers a variety of free online diploma course, Business and Enterprise Skills, Digital Literacy and IT skills, Personal Development and Soft Skills, Languages, Schools Curriculum, Health and Safety and Compliance, Health Literacy, Financial and Economic Literacy, and others.  There are free study groups available; however, there are optional fees for add-ons such as certifications and ad-free services.  You can download the learner record for free and show it to employers and keep it for yourself.  Though you may have to pay a fee for the diploma certificate, achieving this certificate will show your interest and skills in the subject to employers.

Job Openings with the City of Memphis’ Innovation Delivery Team

City of Memphis Innovation Delivery Team

Earlier this year, the City of Memphis was selected by Bloomberg Philanthropies as one of five cities nationwide to receive an Innovation Delivery Team grant.  The three-year grant represents one of the largest private-sector commitments to social innovation in our nation’s history.  The grant will fund local teams, housed within the Mayor’s Office, charged with developing effective solutions to some of the city’s most pressing challenges.  In Memphis, the team is charged with reducing incidences of handgun violence, particularly among juveniles, and supporting small business growth in core city neighborhoods.

 Today, we are pleased to post job descriptions for seven positions on the team for which we are now hiring.  Please click the links below for a more detailed job description for each:

The full job descriptions contain all the information about the exact duties and responsibilities of each position, as well as the qualifications we are looking for.  Suffice to say, we are looking for bold, visionary urban leaders who excited about the prospect of working in a collaborative, innovative environment to generate the new solutions that will help Memphis – and all American cities – advance and prosper.

 Salaries for each position will be competitive and commensurate with experience.  A full benefits package will be offered for each.  Salaries and benefits will be paid from the Bloomberg Philanthropies; no City of Memphis tax-payer dollars or general funds will be used.
Please share these with your friends and colleagues!  Many thanks for your help and all you do to make Memphis great. 


Yours in service,

 A C Wharton, Jr.

Mayor, City of Memphis
