LinkedIn Learning Competition

Nestlé Needs Youth mobilizes its goal of increasing the employability of youth, by partnering with other like-minded companies. Together we develop opportunities that support youth as they launch their professional careers.

Recently, we partnered with Thrive to give 25 young people free access to LinkedIn Learning until October 31st, 2020. This unique opportunity can help young people accelerate their career as they acquire skills for a successful future.

The courses are taught by industry experts in business, technology and creative skills, and participants have the freedom to browse the entire LinkedIn Learning Library and learn topics in any industry aligned to their goals. We have also created five exclusive learning pathways for youth that focus attention on the most relevant content.

 

Learning Pathways:

 

Transitioning to the business world from academia or other work experiences can be challenging and requires a new set of skills and capabilities.  These include the importance of building professional relationships, the need to communicate effectively and confidently, the ability to manage your time and priorities and the drive to deliver results.  This learning path provides instruction and guidance on many of these business fundamentals that will help set you up for success.

The Microsoft Office Suite is not only an industry-leading set of applications but has become the default suite of productivity tools across most businesses. This learning path will help you get up-to-speed with Office, regardless of your experience level.  These courses cover the essentials of Office 365, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Microsoft Teams.

Emotional Intelligence (often referred to as EQ)has become one of the primary factors in achieving professional success, even more critical than IQ.  This learning path will help you better understand what emotional intelligence is and why it’s important.  Along the way, you’ll learn to develop greater self-awareness and become more mindful of your own strengths and limitations.

Managing your career is a lifelong skill that comes into play at every stage of your professional journey.  This learning path will help you establish solid practices for building a career plan and thriving when taking on a new job or joining a new company. 

Adopting a growth mindset is a key ingredient in achieving stronger performance and realizing your own potential.  People who cultivate a growth mindset believe that talent and capabilities can grow.  They also avoid negative thinking and self-limiting beliefs.  This learning path will introduce you to the concept of a growth mindset and help you understand how shifts in your thinking can help you become more resilient, enhance your emotional well-being and enable you to get greater enjoyment from your work.
