One of the best things about the internet (besides dog memes) is having access to millions and millions of ways to learn something new. One of our guilty pleasures is watching makeup tutorials on YouTube, and a few of our moms are notorious for scanning Pinterest for baking ideas.
More recently (since graduating college and entering the real world… #thestruggle), we’ve started pooling ideas around the office to learn career skills that we didn’t get the chance to pick up in college. And where have we been learning those skills? The internet.
Here are five resources that offer quick & easy online courses, webinars, tutorial-based blog posts and videos and more to help you learn career skills!
With just 15 minutes a day, you can learn tons of new & nifty skills on Skillshare.com. About a third of the courses are free, but there is also an affordable monthly Premium subscription for $8 (if billed yearly). Skillshare is a great place to pick up a new technique or know-how!
