Businesses are looking to hire more than ever, and with the help of new tools, some are trying to identify candidates with strong business-savvy backgrounds.
A new class is helping those who have a background in business and marketing.
The course, “Business Development with Entrepreneurship,” offers a new way for people to get a jump on the job search, according to its description.
It is a free, interactive class that focuses on business development, leadership, and marketing and is available online through the National Center for Business Research.
The class, which includes a curriculum designed by the Institute of Business, is a “marketing for the entrepreneurial mindset” course that focuses solely on topics related to the new economy, said the Center for Entrepreneurships, which has been helping businesses prepare for the transition to the digital age.
The classes focuses on topics that include networking, branding, business management, marketing, and customer service, said Sarah McBride, a senior research fellow in the Center.
She said the course is designed to help people “really hone in on the key topics that are going to make them stand out in the workplace.”
For instance, the course offers a course on customer service that focuses primarily on how to communicate with customers, McBride said.
Another course on marketing is titled “Building a Business for Entrepreneurial Growth,” which focuses on “building a brand for yourself,” she said.
The course focuses on the idea that “building an organization is really about building a brand.”
The center offers a class on marketing that focuses largely on marketing and marketing tactics.
It also includes a course called “Creating a Social Media Presence” that teaches how to develop a social media presence.
The center also has a course for marketers on marketing, marketing automation, and social media marketing.
The courses focuses on specific topics, such as how to design an effective social media strategy, McBryde said.
The new course is one of the first such classes offered by the center and will be added to its network of online courses, McBrien said.
It will be available online in fall 2018 and at colleges and universities across the country.
McBride said that the courses are meant to help companies create a strong online presence.
“We want to be a place that people can come in and have a conversation with our experts and have some ideas of what they can learn about the job or business,” she told AP.
“It’s really meant to get them started in the conversation about what is actually going on in the world today and how to be relevant in the digital world,” she added.
The Institute for Jobs and Workplace Solutions, which provides online courses for employers, said that in the coming years, it will become increasingly important for employers to recruit and retain employees with an entrepreneurial mindset.
“The new jobs market is one that is going to demand a new type of business model,” said Lisa Sperling, director of the institute’s business education division.
“If you are looking for a new skill set to take advantage of, and if you want to have a chance to work at a high level, you need to have that entrepreneurial spirit.”
