Employers value technical skills. If you want your CV to stand out, it’s worth adding some of these free courses.

1. EdX Introduction to Linux

This hugely popular course already has over 250,000 students enrolled and is great both for novices and for more advanced learners. The materials take about 40-60 hours to work through and are completely free, although you can pay for a certificate at the end. The course will leave you with a sound basic knowledge of Linux.

2. Google Analytics Academy

Almost every business uses Google Analytics to understand its website traffic. The data generated by Google Analytics enables them to make informed decisions on marketing, customer experience and usability.

Now Google’s created the Google Analytics Academy, where you can learn to better understand and use the revealing data hidden in any website, making you an asset to employers. The course is self-paced and allows you to connect with analytics experts and other students.

This is the place to learn just about anything about the extensive suite of Microsoft products and platforms. Microsoft technology is always evolving, so you can use the Virtual Academy to stay up to date.

The teachers themselves work at top Silicon Valley tech companies, so they know what tech companies need. Rather than just making you watch lectures, the courses enable you to put your skills to work in hands-on projects. You’ll gain up-to-the-minute credentials that match current industry demands.
