LinkedIn Learning Course Certificates

linkedin learning

 

LinkedIn Learning is an online course website offering video courses taught by industry experts in software, creative, and business skills.  As the reviewer from the website careersidekick.com pointed out in the article "Is LinkedIn Learning Worth It? LinkedIn Learning Review, Costs and More"

I mentioned earlier that this is particularly useful for job seekers, or someone applying for a promotion/raise.  Basically, anyone who needs to boost their resume and get the attention of a hiring manager. Here’s why: Employers want to hire (and promote) people who are proactive about improving/learning. People who are motivated and want to succeed.

Why do they love this so much? Because you can’t teach this stuff! People either “have it” or they don’t. So when you show employers you have this trait, it will set you apart from most other job seekers immediately.

Below are listed my certificates from LinkedIn Learning. They cover software expertise in Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesignMaxon Cinema4D. 

Other skills I have been awarded for are not software specific. These include principles of great design, effective visual composition, typography, colour theory, digital content marketing, and developing style guides for branding.

Each certificate is inscribed with this motif:

By continuing to learn, you have expanded your perspective, sharpened your skills, and made yourself even more in demand.

That is and continues to be my express intention.
