If you want to keep advancing your career then learning new skills is the easiest and fastest way for growth.

“Formal education will make you a living; self education will make you a fortune.”  

~Jim Rohn

I’d like to introduce you to Coursera, Coursera is an education platform that partners with top universities and organizations worldwide to offer courses online for anyone to take. Their mission is “to provide universal access to the world’s best education”.  From what I can see, they are doing a really good job of making career development and learning easy and affordable.

Classes are held monthly, online and vary in terms of time commitment so you can sign up for classes if and when they fit in to your schedule.

Their course offerings is pretty darn impressive.  Click HERE to search their class list.

I think that their pricing is very reasonable especially since there is a very high ROI in your career development.  As one example, their Project Management Principles and Practices is 4 classes @ $69 each or $248 if you pay for all four classes up front.

Initiating and Planning Projects
$69 USD

Budgeting and Scheduling Projects
$69 USD

Managing Project Risks and Changes
$69 USD

Project Management Capstone
$69 USD

 

Consider taking a few classes that would bring value to your career.  If you’d like more info on what skills employers are looking for, read my recent blog post,  Most Valuable Career Skills.

Your career development is in your own hands so make the most it!
