1. Job Search Skills: Identify Your Purpose and Get The Job of Your Dreams

Searching for a job can be intimidating. How do you know what job you’re best suited for? How do you build a winning résumé and cover letter? Where can you find job leads? How do you network without feeling nervous? What happens when you land an interview? And most importantly, where do you find help when you need it?

This course will give you the answers to all these questions, plus a plan to get you to a new job within a month. After completing this course, you’ll be more than ready to start your search for your perfect job.

Identifying your purpose for working and the skills required will help you determine the types of jobs you should apply for.

2. Creating a Dynamite Job Portfolio: Learn The Different Aspects Of Your Job Package

The job market continues to change, as does the way we look for work. This course examines the value of presenting yourself as a complete package by using a resume as an introduction to an employer and backing it up with a portfolio presented at the interview. We recommend that you complete “Getting Your Job Search Started” before beginning this course.

In this course, you’ll learn about the different aspects of your job package, including your resume, cover letter, and job portfolio. You’ll also receive a plan that will get you to a job in 60 days, techniques for writing thank-you notes, and tips for choosing your references.

3. Mastering The Interview: Master Job Interview Skills

The interview is one of the key elements of the job search process. As with any skill, we can get better at it with preparation and practice. This course will give you the chance to master job interview skills.

In this course, you will learn how to prepare for and participate in a job interview. We’ll share the types of questions to expect, as well as the questions that you should think about asking. You will also learn how to prepare for second interviews, testing, and shadowing, as well as how to follow up after an interview.

4. Interpersonal Skills: Learn Powerful Communication Skills!

We've all met that dynamic, charismatic person that just have a way with others, and has a way of being remembered. You will identify ways of creating a powerful introduction, remembering names, and managing situations when you’ve forgotten someone’s name.

The Interpersonal Skills course will help you work towards being that unforgettable person by providing communication skills, negotiation techniques, tips on making an impact, and advice on networking and starting conversations. You will also identify the skills needed in starting a conversation, moving a conversation along, and progressing to higher levels of conversation.

5. Personal Branding: Manage Your Personal Brand To Help You Achieve Your Goals

In the information age, personal branding is necessary for the success of any company or individual. Failing to manage personal branding can lead to misinformation about you or your company becoming public. Taking control of your public image is no longer an option. Identifying and using the tools that affect personal branding correctly will ensure that the public sees the image that you want them to see. A positive brand is necessary for success.

Personal Branding is identifying your assets, characteristics, strengths, and skills as an individual. Understanding Personal Branding will provide advantages in your personal and professional lives. Branding is a mix of how you present yourself and how others see you. It is important to be aware of how you are viewed.

With our Personal Branding Online Short Course, you will be able to share your vision and passions with others in your company. Utilize this knowledge through Social Media to define and influence how others see you. You are your brand so protect it. Live it.
