Have Computer, Learn Skills


Robby

It’s hard to say much about what your next career move will be like, but a good bet is that it will require knowledge you don’t currently have.

Maybe you’ll need to go back to school to get ahead. But you might also be able to develop some incredibly useful skills if you have a computer and Internet access.

This isn’t the first time we’ve discussed the skills gap in Indiana. But it’s worth mentioning just a few of the resources that are available.

For many people, one of the best ways to learn to do something is to watch someone else do it. Here are some topics you might search for online, organized by topic:

Computer Software

This may be the quickest path to another job. If you use a software product (or want to use it), take a look at videos online of people explaining how to operate that program. This might be anything from productivity applications (Microsoft Office, Google Docs) to speciality software (QuickBooks, Peach Tree, Photoshop, Premiere, Final Cut Pro) or even applications your business already uses.

Machinery and Equipment

If you work in an environment where things require service or repair, you can learn more about how they are made by doing online research. In particular, videos of people making or assembling equipment can be highly educational.

Professional Etiquette and Communication

Your next job may require you to interact with a different caliber of person, or talk to people from another culture or who speak another language. You can use online clips to find out how to navigate social or professional social situations, what to wear, how to do small talk, or even how to speak, read, and write a foreign language.

Food Preparation and Services

The amateur chef has already found tons of great recipes online. But if you want to work in any aspect of the service industry, you can learn more about food, wine, cooking, cleaning, or customer service than you would ever dream.

Business and Economics Knowledge

Ready to move into better chair or to a nicer office? Learn more about the world of business by making your own online course on business ethics, process improvement, employee development, conflict management, corporate finance, international relations, or more.
