Online courses are a rave at the moment. However the problem isn’t education – the problem is finding a job. Can we combine job hunting and online education technology?
Sometimes you are lost where to start or even what to do with your career? Now, I have my views on that. However let’s say you do want some help to be productive, to do a better job search etc, here’s one thing you can do.
Join the Muse University by The Daily Muse. It’s not a physical university, ofcourse. But rather an online portal that focuses on helping your career and job search.
Muse U describes itself in these words
“We all need a little career guidance from time to time. Muse U is your go-to source for all your career questions, career planning, and career advancement classes. Get the help you need, when you need it. “
For e.g. you don’t know what to do with in your life? Well, you can get some motivation by checking out Muse U’s courses on finding the answers here.
You want a new job, but not sure what exactly you’ll love? Use this downloadable workshop to brainstorm your interests and passions and guide yourself toward your dream career.
This is just one of the many courses Muse U offers.
Will this take a day?
Well ok, this will not make a difference in a day. However once you get started it will help you as they use email courses which will drip feed information into your mailbox everyday. This helps in keeping you focused.
I knew about Muse U for a while however since I am not job hunting, I didn’t try it out. I was impressed by their model though. Recently a friend of mine did take a course from Muse U and she had only good to speak about it. So this is right time to support Muse U.
This also goes in line with my advice on things to do as an alternative to internship.
