UPDATE: 75,000 DOST & Coursera Grant licenses are fully filled-up!
After watching the video of Nas Daily a few days ago, I realized that we are in a serious situation because of the pandemic. We have to be careful for the next couple of years in order to survive. The economic recession is just starting. More and more people are losing their jobs and businesses are continuously shutting down. In reality, some jobs are simply not coming back.
Nas said that it is important that we must spend our free time on education. Get a skill that can make money fast. Businesses will hire people with internet skills. People who know how to edit videos, people who know how to run Facebook ads, build websites or create a sales funnel.
Thus, I am happy to share that the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-Caraga) is offering a DOST Coursera grant to all Filipinos nationwide. Yes, even if you are not from the Caraga region, you can still take advantage of this grant.
If you are not familiar with Coursera, it is an online course provider founded in 2012 that features different courses from top universities like Yale, Michigan, Stanford, and leading companies like Google and IBM.
- Facebook Social Media Marketing
- What is Data Science
- Psychological First Aid
- First Step Korean
- Fundamentals of Graphic Design
- Design Thinking for Innovation
- Fundamentals of Project Planning and Management
- Supply Chain Logistics
I have been an online freelancer for more than 5 years and I just feel that my experience is not enough. This is the main reason why I availed of this scholarship grant. We should not stop learning and instead let us invest in ourselves as we continue to grow.
One more thing... Most courses come with a certificate so, this can also help you as if you are building your portfolio and credentials.
