Access Free courses
Take a free course on how to become a successful job hunter at Lynda.com and get expert advice from career coaches and business professionals. Topics include: writing a CV and cover letter with FAQs answered by recruitment experts, constructing a stellar LinkedIn profile, and mastering common interview questions.
Lynda.com is free and held at most public libraries. Head to our “Find a Library” page and search for a location near you. Join for free and access online services and resources. It just takes a couple of easy steps and can be done entirely from home.
The top 5 course categories accessed during lockdown show Lynda.com is also being used to build knowledge particularly in the areas of business, digital design and creativity, and programming.
Auckland Libraries noted the most popular Lynda.com courses completed by their members were those focused on upskilling to support working from home. Tutorials for software for online conferencing, collaborative project management, Office 365, and time management skills also continue to be popular.
Thanks Auckland Libraries!
