It’s time for sharpening up our skills! JobsDB gives advice on how to upskill while working from home

Email

Again, we are making a comeback to the Work From Home (WFH) culture. Although this time many of us may have started to adjust to working at home, it is believed that some people have not become accustomed to the new norm of working and it often causes a feeling of not being productive enough. Getting cozy at home all week long can make a habit of forcing yourself hard to be energetic and find something to do in your free hours. However, everyone has a different way to increase our productivity. It can be grabbing a favorite book to read, having a no-gym workout, doing a house cleaning task, and so on.

If you feel like it’s something you’d like to do to dust off and improve yourself, then we’ve come up with a collection of free online courses to help upskilling a little easier while working from home. JobsDB has recently partnered with a popular online learning platform, FutureLearn, to launch the “Level Up Your Career” (#levelupyourcareer) campaign offering more than 80 online courses that is absolutely free for new graduates and interested persons, who are seeking to benefit from upskilling while working at home.

A certificate will be rewarded after completing the FutureLearn course and then you can upgrade your professional profile as well. There are three upskilling highlights here for you to choose from.

  1. Digital

Over the past years, many of us have probably heard the word ‘disruption,’ partly as a result of the emergence of new technologies and innovations that triggers a drastic change. These have forced many businesses to quickly adapt to be in line with the new disruption trend. As we undergo momentous flows of digital innovations in particular, working professionals have to keep updated instantly in order to stay ahead of the game in today’s digital world.

The #levelupyourcareer campaign provides working professionals with opportunities to unlock hidden potential and gain access to new digital skills such as fin tech and e-commerce. This encompasses everything from the basic principles in adopting digital transformation to bringing businesses to greater heights in the e-commerce market.

Additionally, this section offers the basics for those seeking to know world-changing technologies like blockchain better. Moreover, its digital marketing course provides learners with all about digital marketing from basic principles to in-depth analysis and planning. Another course that should not be missed is Big Data and Analytics, which covers introductory database and SQL (Structured Query Language) as well as a course on how to optimize data. 

  1. Language

Today, it is widely acceptable that language skills are very essential in our daily life and often more important at work. Many of us are in the situations where it requires communicating in a foreign language with our co-workers and managers. The universal language used in many offices would inevitably be English: writing emails, managing meetings, and preparing office documents.

Therefore, during this Work From Home period, everyone can practice their English language skills with the #levelupyourcareer campaign. Courses include English for the WorkplaceEnglish Pronunciation in a Global World designed to improve your skills in writing, reading, speaking and listening. Intensive tutoring for the PTE (Pearson Test of English) has never been easier, with the PTE Success: The Skills You Need course for people who are planning to study abroad or migrate.

  1. Leadership and Management Skills

Another important thing that people working in every industry must keep developing is the leadership skill. Regardless of the field of work, leadership skill can help boost efficiency and performance, especially for those being promoted to be a supervisor, team leader, or a manager at your place of work.

The #levelupyourcareer campaign offers courses for developing the leadership and managerial skills, which involve the definition leadership, growth mindset for a manager, people management and team leading.
