About the Career Course
Learn what employers really want
Analyzing job ads can be really tough. It’s hard to discern what companies want —and if you have the skills they’re looking for. This course analyzes job ads line-by-line to identify the skills you need to succeed, and then identify the path you need to get there.
Don’t have any content design experience? No problem. We’ll show you how to translate your job experience to a content design role.
Ace interviews and create an effective portfolio
Content design interviews are no joke, especially at large tech organizations. We’ll take you through practical examples—including videos and audio recordings—of the types of questions you’re likely to get. You’ll hear from experienced content design leaders on how to answer them.
Plus, we’ll show you how to put together a killer portfolio.
