From The Opportunity Pipeline – Virtual Workshops

Ongoing virtual workshops perfect for quarantine.




Back in the good old days, professional development conferences and workshops were held at lofty hotels, local colleges, and city centers. With COVID-19, it’s just a bit different now. Just a few clicks away, your professional advancement has become so much easier to access. Now with WFH, you have the world and your professional advancement at your fingertips.


There are hundreds (if not thousands) of workshops, summits, and conferences hosted every month, now available to even more people than before–as long as you have Wi-fi and decent electronics at your disposal. We know it can be difficult to sift through all of your options with as many as there are. So we at The 2.0 Collective have put together a selection of workshops straight from our Opportunity Pipeline meant to help you level up in areas such as creative upskilling, storycrafting, and career planning!



For Those Who Are: Struggling with Your Bio

We all know and dread the phrase, “Tell me about yourself.” Udemy’s Public Speaking Essentials: How to Craft Your Personal Story helps you learn exactly what to say to impress. This free course teaches you the best ways to sell yourself in those nerve-wracking public speaking moments and grow in your overall storytelling craft.







For Those Who Are: Career Transitioners

General Assembly has always killed it in the virtual workshop game, and this week is no exception. With classes like Creative Coding and A Career Changer's Toolkit, there are options for everyone. As long as spots are open, you still have time to sign up and experience these wonderful opportunities filled with a wide variety of career-planning and career-strengthening courses. These options don't suit your needs? Check out their site for more workshops and classes on everything from Data Analytics to Visual Design.



For Those Who Are: Trying to Get Your $$$ in Order

Understanding finances can be such a pain, but You Need A Budget works to provide you with free resources like workshops and articles to help make you one of the financially fit. They delve into

topics like budgeting, savings, debit and credit cards, and others in 20-minute classes that can help turn your life around and grow your bank account in no time.





For Those Who Are: Breaking into Creative Industries

With all of the new illustrator programs out now, sometimes it can be hard to keep up. Adobe is taking away some of the stress of trying to figure everything out on your own and offering a free Adobe Illustrator workshop, so you can take one program off your list. Gain the creative upskilling and technical expertise you need to strike it big with this content creation programming.



For Those Who Are: Bulking Up Their Technical Skills

Udemy’s workshop game is strong this week, rounding out our list with a Java class for beginners. If you’re looking to bulk up your technical skills or just get some extra practice in to dust off old skills, this is the workshop for you. You may not be hired by the FBI immediately after the course, but we all have to start somewhere, right?








This is just a small selection of workshops happening this week. All of them are online and free, but there are paid ones as well if you have the dollars to spare.
