Are you active duty or a Veteran looking for ways to expand your skills? Are you transitioning or planning your transition into the civilian world?
Passing on info a Marine Veteran sent me…
“Back on Veterans’ Day LinkedIn ran a promotional about this and I signed up. There aren’t a lot of courses applicable to me but are some that would for others.”
The VA and LinkedIn are partnering to offer service members and Veterans one year of access to LinkedIn’s professional development site, Lynda.com, at no cost.
Lynda.com offers online video tutorials and training in the following areas: developer, design, web, photography, business, education, 3D + Animation, Video, and Audio + Music
Additionally, LinkedIn offers service members and Veterans job-search resources and a one-year premium job seeker account on its own site at no cost. Interested? Start here to set up your account: https://veterans.linkedin.com/
You can read the VA’s blog post for more details here.
Or just jump in at the links above.
Lynda.com also offers a 10 day free trial for those who aren’t Veterans or in the military and would like to check it out before committing to it, as well as monthly plans. Looks interesting!
