LIFELONG LEARNING and the FUTURE OF WORK

Please join us Thursday 10/22/20 at 5 pm PT, for our Get Hired Now! Career Success Networking Group Call with Coach Ron Nash. 

We will have GHN Career Network member Leah Jewell join us to talk about Upskilling and Reskilling this week. See additional info below.

 

What we will talk about: 

LIFELONG LEARNING and the FUTURE OF WORK 

WHY UPSKILLING/RESKILLING 

  • Jobs require us to constantly shift and evolve 
  • Stay relevant 
  • Confidence 
  • Employers value someone who’s always learning- it’s a mindset 
  • Think of yourself as a suite of skills vs a particular job 

WHAT TO LEARN 

  • High demand skills. Job shifting and this is for the short and long term. 
  • Behavioral Skills 
  • What credentials matter 
  • Unpacking job descriptions- employers are not always clear about skills or pathways- it’s not you, it’s them! 
  • Look for skills/learning at the intersection of passion, job alignment and time 

WHERE TO LEARN 

  • Free vs paid 
  • Degree vs discrete skill 
  • Volunteer 
  • Start a business 
  • All learning counts- not every learning is formal 
  • Unpack your personal story 

HOW TO DEMONSTRATE WHAT YOU’VE LEARNED 

  • Certifications 
  • Digital Credentials 
  • Portfolio
