Pluralsight is the deepest and broadest content library for technical professionals. That is, they have the most courses that go in-depth and are highly technical. They have recruited amazing experts and thought leaders to help professionals understand their trade, and what’s on the horizon, with a bazillion hours of training (over 7,000 courses).
When I started as a content producer (aka “author”), back in 2012, soft skills was not the main focus. It still isn’t… but I’ve carved out my little niche in the library and have created over 30 courses for them. Over the years my courses have shifted from job search and career management to professional development (like Understanding Your Audience and Becoming a Better Listener and, yes, really, a course titled Effective Email Communication).
But my day job is still JibberJobber, and I love The Job Search Program, focused on informational interviews. I field questions and have conversations about job search a good part of my day. Tonight I’m doing a presentation for a job club on the East Coast. It’s in my blood, and has been since I got laid off in 2006.
With that in mind, and because of the reports of over 22 million unemployment claims, I created the Job Search Channel on Pluralsight. This is a short collection of courses specific to job seekers, including:
Designing a Killer Job Search Strategy
Developing a Killer Personal Brand
LinkedIn Strategy: Optimize Your Profile
LinkedIn: Proactive Strategies
Resumes, Job Seeking, and Interviews in Context
Resumes, Research, and Writing on the Job Hunt
