To help job seekers gain the skills they need for employment in today’s economy, Microsoft and LinkedIn are extending their global skills initiative through the end of 2021, providing free LinkedIn Learning and Microsoft Learn courses as well as low-cost certifications that align to in-demand jobs. Areas of focus include customer service, project management, data analysis, software development and more. “Over the past year, we’ve seen the pandemic hit people who can bear it the least,” said Microsoft President Brad Smith, in a statement. “We are doubling down at LinkedIn and across Microsoft with new work to support a more inclusive skills-based labor market, creating more alternatives, greater flexibility, and accessible learning paths that connect these more readily with new jobs.”
