Whether you’re just starting a new career or looking to boost your existing one, you need something on your resume that sets you apart. It should be something that impresses employers and proves you have specialized skills and knowledge.

Certificate programs give you the credentials you need to land a high-paying job — and they’re typically not as expensive or lengthy as traditional college degree programs.

For example, you don't need a degree to become an electrician. The average salary for an electrician is $56,900 per year. Plus, the field is growing much faster than average. Electricians have to complete an apprenticeship to get certified.

Here are 5 more jobs where certificate programs can help your. Have you ever completed a certificate program to enhance your #jobsearch? #upskill

No experience? No problem. One way to overcome a lack of experience is to get trained and build your skill set! Identify educational programs or courses that are reputable, respected, and most importantly offer skills that translate into real-life situations.

I am an Employment Consultant in Seattle with a mission to create life opportunities for persons with disabilities. I help this talent pool become gainfully employed and thrive in the community. According to the Bueau of Labor & Statistics the unemployment rate for Americans with disabilities is around 70%. With #RemoteWork becoming mainstream many of the individuals I support seek to #upskill and join the digital economy. Not everyone has a college degree or an IT background. They are resilient with a learn-it-all attitude and are often early adopter of assistive technologies that create a pathway to independence. During #Covid19 a job opportunity that is meaningful is a game changer and can overcome social exclusion and build a reservoir of hope for this talent pool. That being said it is one job at a time! Thanks for any feedback or pointers. #workfromhome #careerdiscovery

I will be keeping track of this. I have High-Functioning Autism (Asperger’s), though no one would think I do at all... but I’m convinced it shoots my chances at interviews by putting off bad vibes. Also it gives me a defeatist attitude about competing for anything against others, let alone jobs. I only have a liberal arts BA degree I did very well in and a lot of other credentials, but I feel like I have to totally shift to a new field in which merit will get you the job over interviewing skills. I actually do have great people skills but not under a strict hierarchical system or where you’re expected to act ‘inauthentic,’ such as in an interview.
