At Built In, we’re always checking in with tech professionals like you to understand what matters most. You’ve made it clear you value opportunities to learn. In fact, our professional development articles represent BuiltIn.com’s most popular content. And when we recently surveyed our most active users, 87 percent expressed interest in online courses and 59 percent said they feel learning is tied to career growth.
So we’re thrilled to announce the launch of Learning Lab, a new way for you to build skills through BuiltIn.com and, in the process, grow your career.
Offered in partnership with Udemy, a leading destination for learning and teaching online, and Udacity, a digital talent transformation platform, Learning Lab offers courses and certifications in an array of disciplines, including data science, design UX, finance, IT, marketing, product management, software engineering, and cybersecurity. In software engineering specifically, courses will cover languages such as Python, R, Java, and SQL.
“Advancements in tech come at you fast,” said Built In’s Co-Founder and VP of Growth Adam Calica. “Learning Lab represents Built In’s commitment to helping you keep your skills current, whether you’re a tech veteran, recent grad or a professional ready to change industries. Our goal is to help today’s tech leaders continue to move their careers forward and develop the next generation of leaders. We’re well on our way with this launch.”
This marks the first phase of Learning Lab. As the product expands, so will its topics of study, including courses in non-technical skills.
Learning Lab will also help you determine appropriate coursework to meet your unique professional goals. Our survey confirmed our community of professionals needs this. Fully 57 percent of respondents said that, when considering professional development opportunities, they struggled to determine which courses or certifications would have the most positive impact on their careers.
In future iterations, Learning Lab will empower you to create customized learning journeys. Whether you’re seeking to make a career change or win a promotion, Learning Lab will help you select the courses or learning modules you need to take your career in any direction you like.
