We’re already one month into the new year. So now is the perfect time to get a jump start on some new skills or complete a refresher on something you already know a lot about. There’s always more to learn, and it doesn’t hurt refreshing your knowledge on the basics just in case an aspect has changed or evolved.

But what should you learn? Adecco recently released a report highlighting skills that will be needed by 2025 and what jobs may not be as relevant in the future. So if you’re preparing for your next role or looking for a career change, then these are the online courses you might want to look further into.

Learning Beyond the Online Courses

You might not think you have the time to complete online courses. However, many of them are self-paced and can be finished when you have a spare five minutes here or there. If you don’t have time to enrol in one, then you should freshen up your skill with videos or blog posts.
