Do It

take a class at a MOOC


Everywhere. But mainly on your computer.

There are a lot of great reasons to get involved with a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) at places like Udacity, Coursera or Khan Academy.

2) It's an investment in yourself. There are lots of courses that would augment your skills on the job and would be a nice little extra on your resume. Better yet, maybe you learn something that allows you to add more value to your job?

3) Help set-up a career change. Oddly enough, my degree in Film and Television is pretty useless in getting a job. I was able to make a successful career change from television post-production to software in in part because of expanding my skills with online classes.
