Student Experiences

Investments in oneself are always a wise decision. I wanted to try out a new field and Skillsbuild was the perfect stepping stone towards that. They provide lots of classes in an array of topics and industries. I now have a deep understanding of social media marketing and how it works, which has opened up so many new opportunities for me.

I really loved the business communications course. I had taken some business courses in college but none of them were very useful in the work place. The Skillsbuild course was different, though - it helped me improve my written business communication skills and allowed me to explore new positions that I might not have been qualified for before. Overall, it was a great investment!

I'm a recent graduate, and I had been looking for ways to enter the field of data science. I came across Skillsbuild and after researching their course, I enrolled in it because it was praised as one of the most effective programs available. This class has allowed me to successfully enter the field with an advanced skill set that is appealing to employers.
