As more Australians are stuck at home in isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic and the unemployment rate continues to skyrocket, experts recommend learning new skills with your extra time to be as ‘employable’ as possible on the other side of the crisis

As more Australians are stuck at home in isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic and the unemployment rate continues to skyrocket, experts recommend learning new skills with your extra time to be as ‘employable’ as possible on the other side of the crisis. 

Careers expert and LinkedIn specialist Sue Ellson suggests taking part in free online courses and developing your resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile, especially since the NSW Government made 21 in-demand TAFE courses fee-free this week. 

‘If you are considering going back into your old role after COVID-19 or into a new role somewhere else, you need to think in terms of the best value you can provide your employer,’ Sue told FEMAIL.

She said employees must add value to the employer by having the necessary skills, a ‘can do’ attitude and a willingness to learn.

Partake in free online courses to develop skills

Participating in online courses is an essential way to develop or improve skills – and now free online TAFE courses are being offered to Australians.

The NSW Government said it would make 21 TAFE courses fee-free in a bid to help Australians stay productive at home during the COVID-19 crisis.

The courses, which can cost as much as $1,570 for 12 weeks of study, offer practical skills and experiences across a range of industries including administration, business and computing.

It comes as more than a million Australians face being unemployed, one in ten of the country’s working population of 12.5 million.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced the free courses during her press conference in Sydney on Monday morning.

‘We know the next six months are going to be difficult and what we have done today is announce that through TAFE there are 21 free courses you can do from home to upgrade your skills or to acquire new skills and this is good news,’ she said.

‘It means people can start preparing for when these difficult times are over.’

      Heya! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
      Does building a well-established website
      such as yours require a massive amount work? I’m brand new to writing a blog however I do write
      in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I
      will be able to share my own experience and
      feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new
      aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
