Expand Skills

The Expand Skills section will help you learn about ways to expand your skills and grow professionally creating opportunities for a better life.

Deciding what skills to gain or expand is an important part of your career achievement process because your skills are the foundation of your career.

Why should you expand your skills?

• Employers hire people with skills that match their job needs.

• Employers keep and promote people who are serious about expanding their skills.

• Many good jobs require training such as a degree or a certification.

• If your job ends, you’ll have a better chance to get a new one.
