IBM has launched a "New Collar" Professional Certificate program on Coursera as a response to their identified skills gap.
According to their site:
"New collar jobs and training initiatives address the tech industry’s skills gap and create multiple pathways for people to land these jobs.
These aren’t “blue collar” or “white collar” jobs, they’re...“new collar” roles in technology that prioritize skills and capabilities over degrees or having a traditional career path. What matters most in these roles is having the right mix of skills and a commitment to lifelong learning."
These roles are in some of the technology's fastest growing fields. Learn more abut IBM's New Collar Professional Certificates.

66% of Store Managers began as hourly associates. Plus, if you complete their training program you’ll gain important skills and an opportunity to boost your paycheck.
It never fails to amaze me at the post on this site. People having all types of trouble finding jobs, holding onto a job, getting an interview and when things don't work out it always the company, the boss or the other employees fault. Sometimes we have to take a stand backward and examine ourselves make the necessary changes to our selves that bring the needed improvement that we are looking for. If you have a bad background, begin today to improve it, that may take awhile but its not impossible. A bad work history, make every effort on the job you have to be a success and let it be the stepping stone to something better. You can't expect to start at the top, nothing wrong with high expectations but you may find out you have to work toward those goals.
I am frustrated professionally and it is impacting my family life. I have relocated to my mother's, out-of-state because I wish to refocus my depression, frustration, and anger in a positive manner and hoping a "change of air" will accommodate my perspective and also my diminished energy level and skills in arithmetic and reading comprehension.
At 53, I am a mid-career professional. I need mental stimulation and human contact. Where do I turn and how do I re-enter while being aware of the missed training and a job market that has evolved while I have been away for 20 years? I am crying as I write this. Any tactics for my predicament? Thanks in advance!
So I have been a sprinkler fitter for 10 plus years and all of my jobs were at companies that just wanted me to do the same job, no advancement. I realized this was a dead end job. So I completely quit the trade and got a job as an HVAC pipe fitter. I have been doing this for a year. Last month I was contacted about a company that is starting a fire sprinkler division. I replied and went through an interview. A week later they scheduled me another interview. This past week I received an offer letter. So now I have accepted the job as the lead sprinkler tech. Within the next 2 years I'll be a manager. I was thinking last night. How did this come? By chance? Then I realized I have been reading self help books for the last year. My whole out look on life has changed drastically within the last year. The opportunities will come as long as you apply your self in the correct way. I am proof of it. This job I took is 4$/hr more than I'm currently making plus commission bonuses at the end of every month. Plus a fast track to advancing my career!! Who could ask for more?
Job Title: Machine Operator. This job is your typical entry level, 8-12 hour shift job with no benefits. This includes grave yard shifts for one month and the next is morning shifts.
I'm a 2year college grad looking for more opportunity that will not only feed me mentally but physically as well. I'm looking to further my education in the coming months, so I'm looking for opportunities as it relates to my intended major (civil engineering) or anything along the way that could acknowledge the education that I have accomplished and could possibly further my learning for the future.
Cant move up in DG. Put my 2 weeks in 3× and got talked into transferring each time. Been in the DG market and now at my 3rd DG store where I had to demote myself to a basic key holder from ASM. The store is a mess like the rest I've been in and I can't fix them anymore lol. Help....! 4 DG's Later....
Fast food jobs are okay, but I am too old to be working for $7-8 an hour flipping burgers. Those companies are to quick to hire. I apply for a Court House job position, was told they have hired someone for that position already. 3 weeks later come to fine out they hired someone who does not have the qualification for the job. I maybe wrong but you don't always get what you in life. :)
