Free Training Spotlight:
Digital marketing courses

July 11, 2017

By Jordan Schwartz

Modern day digital marketers are expected to have a hybrid skillset and at times it can be frustrating. One second your job insists you’re an expert at design and coding, and the next you’re expected to know the ins and outs of content creation, email, analytics and social media. Your digital experience can only take you so far—the dynamic nature of this industry makes continual training an essential.

TEKsystems offers our current consultants over 4,000 free training courses and 37,000 videos to help you upskill and stay competitive and relevant. Through our partnership with Skillsoft, consultants (i.e., contractors) can access many courses geared toward digital marketers, from design (Adobe InDesign, Dreamweaver, Flash, Illustrator and Premier Pro) to essential marketing skills like web analytics and content management, plus all the coding classes you could want. Current TEKsystems consultants can access Skillsoft—as well as information about your benefits and assignment—via your Community portal. If you haven't accessed the portal yet, ask your recruiter to re-send your unique login.
