MISSOULA - The University of Montana is introducing new courses aimed to improve the employability of Montana residents. The School of Extended and Lifelong Learning is offering a new series of professional development courses designed to enhance career potential.
The non-credit courses are taught by UM faculty, and program director Candi Merrill says that they structure their courses based off of what's needed in the job market, such as social media skills, facilitating effective meetings to project management.
"I think that these kinds of things will be really beneficial for small business owners, and for companies that aren't big enough to bring in their own expertise or have their own training,"Merrill explained.
She says it doesn't matter what industry a person attending the classes is in, and that the skills they teach are needed across the board. Click here for more information.
