I'll let you in on a secret: the job I have now is not my dream job. Though with this present job I get a good enough pay and I get to have my own office, I am not really happy with it because this is not what I love doing. My dream job is related to arts. I would love to be in the field of web design & graphics. Yes, for years I have dreamed of becoming a web designer & graphics artist but I know that it would be quite impossible to achieve if I would just do the learning of how to become a good animator on my own. Since 2005 I have collected tons of books and videos that teach how to use different web design and graphics software. I learned the basics but I know that what I have learned so far would not be good enough for me to be hired in the field I want to be in. I know that I need help from the outside, I need to be guided properly and placed on the job.
Last night I came upon Learn.com
, is an Elearning
site. But it is not just a common elearning site, it is the worldwide leader in on-demand workforce development and productivity with more than 50 million end users around the globe. They have a wide suite of Software as a Service (SaaS) applications that can fully automate the pre-hire to retire® lifecycle within any organization. In short Learn.com will give professional training and then when you get the skills, they help you land on your dream job. I have browsed on their site and found the course I wanted, Web Design & Graphics - Building Your Site with Images. With this course I would be able to create color schemes, backgrounds, GIF transparencies, and imagemaps for a Web site. I believe that when I finish this course, I would be able to get more web design jobs.
