Most people believe that an education degree is must to get a decent job. To a great extent, they are correct. However, times have changed. It was hard to get a job or making a decent living without a degree in old times. Today, the only thing you need to make a decent living is a skill.
What is a skill?
A skill is your ability and competency at a specific job. Copywriting, coding, web development, academic writing, and accounting are few of the most significant skills today.
Where do you learn a skill?
It is a sad truth but most of the skills are generally not taught at a school. You may have never heard about web development or copywriting in your curriculum.
However, there are many ways to learn a skill. A few of them are:
- Become someone’s intern who is already a renowned person in that skill
- Learn from YouTube videos and blogs for free
- Take any online course [belajar online, which is the term in Indonesian] to learn
Which is better?
All of these options have their own pros and cons. It is hard to become someone’s apprentice if you are a newbie. You must have some knowledge of the craft otherwise no one will mentor you.
You can learn for free from videos and blogs but there is just one issue. You will not be able to learn in a systematic way. You may not be able to go step by step and learn in a consecutive order.
The best option is to take an online course. There are many courses available on multiple websites.
How to find the best course?
Do a little research in your skill. Find out who are the gurus and their reviews.
Pick the one that is giving the most affordable course with the best value.
