About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Learners will go from learning how to practice tasteful self promotion, to identifying key elements to include in their resumes and cover letters to successfully make great first impressions. Specifically, you will learn how to conduct a social media audit, master the interview stage, write thank you notes, and evaluate job offers. Furthermore, you will learn how to build authentic relationships and adjust your career plan when needed. As always, material will be consolidated with quizzes and readings to help the learner better understand and apply new concepts.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
