Earlier this year I posted a message about Microsoft initiatives to support workforce recovery and skill development. The program described below is part of a partnership with the Public Library Association and Microsoft and includes most of the resources mentioned in the earlier message. Please note that free access to courses from LinkedIn Learning is through March 31, 2021.   The best link that I have found to bring all the LinkedIn Learning resources available through this program is: https://opportunity.linkedin.com/skills-for-in-demand-jobs Specific links to particular programs and courses are also listed below and on the Skilling for Employment Post COVID-19<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05Njc3MzExJnA9MSZ1PTEwMTg3ODQzMTcmbGk9ODE3NTE0MDc/index.html> site at PLA.

PLA and Microsoft Corp. are working together to help libraries identify existing and new tools for helping community members gain skills for jobs that are well positioned to grow in the future. In the post-COVID world, many will need to learn new skills to rejoin the workforce and be prepared for technical and tech-enabled roles that will be in even greater demand. Visit PLA's Skilling for Employment Post COVID-19<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05Njc3MzExJnA9MSZ1PTEwMTg3ODQzMTcmbGk9ODE3NTE0MDc/index.html> initiative page for access to resources your library can use and promote. For instance, Microsoft Learn<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05Njc3MzExJnA9MSZ1PTEwMTg3ODQzMTcmbGk9ODE3NTE0MTU/index.html> will provide free access to interactive, self-paced content to advance technical skills while preparing for role-based Microsoft certifications, the costs of which have dropped from $100 or more to $15. LinkedIn Learning<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05Njc3MzExJnA9MSZ1PTEwMTg3ODQzMTcmbGk9ODE3NTE0MTY/index.html> has shared a library of high-quality learning paths for in-demand roles like Digital Marketer<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05Njc3MzExJnA9MSZ1PTEwMTg3ODQzMTcmbGk9ODE3NTE0MTg/index.html>, Sales Representative<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05Njc3MzExJnA9MSZ1PTEwMTg3ODQzMTcmbGk9ODE3NTE0MjA/index.html>, Financial Analyst<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05Njc3MzExJnA9MSZ1PTEwMTg3ODQzMTcmbGk9ODE3NTE0MjI/index.html>, and more. You can also help job seekers with the job search and joining the workforce through courses like Finding a Job During Challenging Economic Times<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05Njc3MzExJnA9MSZ1PTEwMTg3ODQzMTcmbGk9ODE3NTE0MjQ/index.html>, Master In-Demand Professional Soft Skills<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05Njc3MzExJnA9MSZ1PTEwMTg3ODQzMTcmbGk9ODE3NTE0MjQ/index.html>, and Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging for All<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05Njc3MzExJnA9MSZ1PTEwMTg3ODQzMTcmbGk9ODE3NTE0MjY/index.html>.
