LinkedIn Makes 35+ Learning Courses Free For a Month – Search Engine Journal


LinkedIn is offering over 35 learning courses free to everyone for a limited time.
In an effort to help professionals adapt to the future of work, LinkedIn is offering over 35 learning courses free for a limited time.
A one month trial of the LinkedIn Learning Hub can be redeemed starting today until October 9.
The courses touch on subjects such as ways to support your team through hybrid work, cultivating well-being during difficult times, and being a manager everyone wants to work for.
In April 2021, LinkedIn’s data showed that two-thirds of the workforce have either left their job or are considering it.
Hiring in the US was nearly 70% higher in June 2021 compared to June 2020, indicating that professionals may have found jobs that better meet their needs.
To attract more candidates, 81% of leaders are changing their workplace policies to offer greater flexibility.
LinkedIn CEO Ryan Roslansky is calling the combination of these events the “great reshuffle.”
In addition to the free courses, Roslansky announces changes are being made to LinkedIn’s job search that will help candidates find remote and/or hybrid positions.
Here’s a roundup of all LinkedIn’s announcements today.
The courses available in LinkedIn’s Learning hub are geared toward job seekers, managers, and HR professionals.
Courses are grouped into subject, and each subject contains several hours worth of video content.
Completing all courses within a subject will grant you a completion badge.
Here are all the subjects available as part of the free trial, along with their corresponding courses.
The share of remote job posts on LinkedIn grew more than 8.5x since the start of the pandemic, increasing from 1.9% of global job posts in March 2020 to 16.3% in August 2021.
Remote job listings on LinkedIn attract twice the share of views and 2.5 times the share of applications when compared against onsite job postings.
To address this shift, LinkedIn is making it easier for employers to list if their open job is remote, hybrid or onsite.
In addition, employers can include testing or vaccination requirements, or whether their work culture is primarily remote, hybrid or in person.
Job seekers can more easily find these opportunities with dedicated remote, hybrid and onsite filters in LinkedIn’s job search tool.
