Plans to enrol in a college or university program
Charlene Biggerstaff went to the Learning Centre in Georgina seeking support for returning to school and was referred to the Contact North | Contact Nord online learning centre in Georgina. With support from Contact North | Contact Nord staff, she started her return to school by enrolling in LinkedIn Learning’s online How to Improve Your Resume course.
“My husband says I can’t get off my laptop, I keep taking course after course,” she admits. “I am taking all kinds of courses like Interview Techniques, Overcoming Imposter Syndrome.”
Charlene operated her own communications and marketing business for many years and recently closed the business. Before seeking job opportunities, she took a number of the online LinkedIn Learning courses to help her update her resume and prepare for job searching. She landed a new job and continues to take courses. “I listen to courses on my drive to work from my media centre,” she shares. “It’s so convenient, so user friendly,” she says.
She also appreciates LinkedIn Learning courses can count towards continuing education credits and they populate her LinkedIn profile.
Charlene plans to enrol in a college or university program in the coming year.
