Learning path description:

A career is a bit like a child. Once you have one, you're really just getting started! Careers take nurturing, attention, and lifelong guidance in order to be at their best.


Skills like communications, brand building, presenting, idea pitching, and more can all help turn your existing job into a well-nourished career that offers more opportunities and options. You may have mastered some of these skills just to get into your current job, but a refresher is a great way to make sure you're continuing to exercise these important "soft" skills.
