Amid rapidly shifting economic conditions, LinkedIn has this week launched a new initiative aimed at helping job-seekers identify key skills in demand, and apply for roles, in order to get more people back into work after recent layoffs and changes.
As explained by LinkedIn:
“[We’re] excited to launch a global skills initiative aimed at bringing more digital skills to 25 million people worldwide by the end of this year. Our goal is to help those who have become unemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis get the skills they need to land their next job. By giving free access to the skills and training that job seekers need to get jobs, we hope to do our part and help connect job seekers around the globe to new opportunities.”
To facilitate this, LinkedIn has launched a new mini-site to help guide people through the process.
