Skills: Make Quarantine useful

The biggest mistake you can make in life is to waste your time“, the quotation simply demonstrates all of this. The pandemic is a stressful time for everyone, particularly those who want to apply for a new job or those who want to better their careers. Because now, all we want to know is only a step ahead, there are a lot of channels, whether youtube or some other web channel.

So, why not use this time to enhance our personality or build a strong resume? for this, you just need a resolution and some knowledge regarding this kind of stuff. So, if like many others you are also confused about what to learn and from where? Just go through this once.

Learn a second language:

This boosts your resume and also plays a vital role in enhancing your personality while preparing you to compete and succeed in the world economy. It surely comes with a lot of advantages as well. Learning a second language means you are going to be equipped with a lot of other skills also like it deepens your connections with other cultures, strengthens your decision making, and undoubtedly boosts your confidence.

The languages which I prefer are Spanish, German and French as these languages are in great demand in the global market. I am learning French nowadays and trust me guys you it is really fun to learn a new language.

Now let’s come to resources where you can learn them online. the resources which I have forged are Duolingo(free and I am using this now so I can assure you that it’s an awesome platform to learn), Babble(paid), Coursera(paid).

Learn to code:

In today’s scenario, this is the skill you can rely on and one of the most interesting skills as well. And the demand for coding related jobs remains strong as always. And the best part about learning this skill is the amount you are going to earn as a coder. Here are some stats for that.

Computer Programmers made a median salary of $84,280 in 2018. The best-paid 25 percent made $109,120 that year, while the lowest-paid 25 percent made $64,410.

A lot of options are available when it comes to languages but here again I would prefer

  • SQL
  • Java
  • Python
  • Java Script
  • C
  • C++
  • C#
  • Golang
  • Scala

Jobs involving other computing skills will pay six-figure amounts on average, based on the language of the candidate. The highest-paying programming language is Golang – commonly known as Go – with U.S. occupations needing this ability to pay an average of $151,069 at the time of writing.

Now the question is where to learn these languages online? So I have forged some resources like Code Wars(free), Free Code Camps(free), Udemy(paid), Coursera(paid), and obviously, youtube.

Boast your marketing resume:
