Odd Courses You Can Take to Change Your Skills
Spark some joy in your life & make your resume stand-out
Jen “Odd” Glantz here! Here’s something I might not have told you ever before:
In college, I majored in poetry. Yes, poetry.
You’re probably wondering what I was thinking back then, but it doesn’t matter.
I was able to get a long list of jobs that had nothing to do with my degree, start my own business (without any bizz experience), write 3 books, start a podcast, and go off and work for myself (for the past 7 years).
My degree didn’t matter but what mattered were all the other things I did that helped compliment my skills and prove to employers that I was way more than what I studied when I was 18.
Listen closely to this:
We are way more than JUST our job experiences, degrees, and what is on our resume.
So if you’re someone who wants a new career, a new side hustle, a new hobby, or a new skillset, you can make that happen.
It’s time to learn & grow your career. Wondering how you can do that in May?
World Certification Week is HubSpot Academy's annual event where folks are encouraged to learn, connect, and grow by dedicating time to their professional development. You'll have the opportunity to learn about a variety of industry topics, connect with fellow learners and thought leaders, and earn HubSpot certifications.
And if you need another reason to participate, for every certification awarded between May 9-13, HubSpot will donate $5 to education-focused charities.
