Build Your Skills
Welcome to Build Your Skills, a map of online employment and career services learning resources to support you on your career journey.
Build Your Skills is comprised of free self-paced online trainings, easy-to-navigate reference guides with exercises and information that you can explore at your own pace and download for future use, and additional resources such as videos, articles, and books to support you as your work towards your career and financial goals.
We have organized Build Your Skills into four key focus areas related to your career journey.
Exploring career options by taking inventory of what is important to you in work, discovering your strengths and skills, networking, and conducting informational interviews to explore career options.
Landing the job you want starts with the job search, developing a resume and cover letter to get your application noticed, interviewing with confidence, choosing references, and finally negotiating salary and compensation.
Developing yourself professionally through understanding workplace etiquette, communicating assertively for self-advocacy, fostering a growth mindset, giving and receiving feedback, setting goals, and effectively managing your time.
Empowering you to take control of your finances such as setting financial goals, creating a budget/spending plan, getting ahead on bills, eliminating debt, and building savings.
As of May 2023, we have uploaded resources in the four key areas to the Build Your Skills portal. Our courses are coming soon!
