In today’s extremely competitive job marketplace it is essential that job-seekers provide proof of their knowledge and expertise so in this blog post we wanted to share some top online courses that will help you improve your CV;
Social Media Marketing Courses
Even if marketing isn’t part of your role, may employers often require smart employees that can manage the social media aspects of their marketing agenda; writing that you have social media skills and putting a social media course completion certificate in your CV are two very different things and the candidate that has the social media course completion shows the employer real proof that they know social media.
Leadership, Coaching & Mentoring Courses
These courses will teach you how to leverage your leadership position and create sustainable results helping with your team’s improvement. It will show your potential employer that you understand what great leaders and managers do to motivate and inspire their teams, and therefore you will know what to do to motivate their team and employees. Employers love ‘mini leaders’ to work within their company, so a qualification like this could really help you stand out.
Google Analytics Course
It is extremely rare for a business not to have a website and care about Google these days, so if you have completed the Google Analytics Academy you will show your potential employer that you can observe and improve the performance of the company website, e-commerce or mobile app. You’ll be able to track, measure and optimise the performance of the company online and this is a massive bonus to be seen on a CV by any employer or hiring manager.
Beginners Adobe Photoshop Courses
A beginner tutorial on Adobe Photoshop will help you grasp the basics of the very popular Adobe Photoshop application and these ‘Photoshop skills’ will improve your value as an employee as companies know how important visual content is in today’s marketing environment. An employee with Photoshop skills will make them a true asset to a company so this will not only help you get a foot in the door but it will help you climb the ladder within the company too.
Companies expect so much more from their employees than they ever did before so consider the courses we have recommended, but also look out for other industry specific courses that will help set you apart from the others when applying for job roles.
And don’t forget, learning new things and continuously developing your own skills will help you grow as a person, but also make you more attractive for promotions in your current workplace and with future employers too. If you can show yourself to be the sort of person that loves learning then you will be welcomed by most employers.
