'My only regret is why I didn't do it sooner': How lockdown is a chance to change your life for ever!
Worried about your job prospects this year? You are not alone. Employment opportunities are looking bleak for many. The pandemic has already resulted in hundreds of thousands of job cuts – many in the retail, leisure, hospitality, travel and entertainment sectors – and more are expected as businesses continue to struggle.
But thankfully, for those who want to give themselves the best chance of finding a new job, it's possible to add sparkle to a CV and develop your skills by taking an online course.
From the top universities and colleges, including the Open University, to specialist providers such as Udemy and LinkedIn – and even private companies such as Barclays and Accenture – there are numerous courses available, both free and paid-for. They range from digital marketing, bookkeeping and Mandarin to child care. But will they make a difference?
