Fullbridge To Offer Career Development Courses on edX

Fullbridge, a company that provides online training programs, will offer a series of online career development courses on the edX platform.

The five-part Career Edge series is designed to assist those who are new college graduates and those who may be making mid-career changes to develop a marketable personal brand and the skills needed to enhance their success in the recruiting process.

In order to distribute the courses on a wider basis, Fullbridge has joined edX, the massive open online course (MOOC) provider that hosts online university-level courses in a wide range of disciplines to a worldwide student body, including some courses at no charge.

"So many students and young professionals have an innate desire to launch their careers or change jobs, but don't have time to attend workshops or go back to school," said Fullbridge Co-Founder and Executive Chair Candice Carpenter Olson. "The partnership with edX allows us to give them the business fundamentals they need for a true life change, while letting them work at their own pace."

Registration for the first course, "Design Your Career," will begin October 28 and the online course will be available November 9.

It will be followed by:

  • "Communication and Teamwork" December 15;
  • "Business Analysis and Data Analytics" January 12;
  • "Analytical Problem Solving and Design Thinking" February 9; and
  • "Resume, Networking and Interview Skills" March 8.

The courses can be taken individually or as part of the Fullbridge Xseries Program, a sequence of courses designed to build mastery in a specific area of study that then qualifies participants for a certificate.
