I’ve been out of the workforce for a few years, but want to re-enter. Do you have any suggestions to brush up on my skills?
Yes, certainly this varies greatly depending upon your industry and position. However, there are some wonderful resources locally and online. Bonus: list the course title and date on your resume and LinkedIn profile to show current skills and add the key terms. The resources below also offer fun course options too, great for networking and personal development. After all, life happens outside of your comfort zone, right?
