Love to Learn?  You’re in Luck!

A few years ago, Wheaton College negotiated a terrific deal with LinkedIn Learning.  Partnering with several nearby colleges/universities, we contracted with LinkedIn Learning to have their resources available to all our faculty, staff, and students.  That means that you, as a student, have access to this incredible library for free!

To encourage you all to take advantage of this, Student Government will host a LinkedIn Learning event sponsored by AIT.  Tentatively scheduled for Friday, January 21, in Lower Beamer, the event will include the opportunity to log into LinkedIn Learning for the first time (or again if you’ve already used it) and see the plethora of topics available to hone your skills.  Every student who stops by the table and participates can enter a raffle for some cool prizes such as AirPods or a Google Home Mini!  More information will be coming later.

While you’re waiting for that event, now is a great time to check out what LinkedIn Learning has to offer!  From hard skills (how do I make a pivot table in Excel?) to soft skills (How can I prepare for a difficult conversation?) LinkedIn Learning has short videos to quickly teach you something new.  You can also add certificates of completed courses to your LinkedIn profile if you are already working on building that for your future career and networking.  That way potential employers or internship leaders can see what sort of topics you have been mastering/learning more about.

If you have any questions, please contact us at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu or call 630.752.4357 (HELP).
