Are you looking for a job or a new career? Here are 150+ online courses (MOOCs) to help. While most courses are useful for everyone, some are particularly aimed towards young people while others explain how to apply for a new job later in life.

Class Central Founder and CEO Dhawal Shah wrote about a MOOC that helped him ace a technical interview and land a job in Silicon Valley in 2012. While many MOOCs teach technical skills, there are also plenty to help you write your resume and succeed at interviews, plus help you identify and develop skills important for the careers of today and tomorrow.

Soft skills are highly valued by employers in a range of occupations. You can find courses in communication, negotiation and dealing with conflict, problem solving, creative thinking and related skills. Learn effective strategies to build your network and use it to improve your chances of landing that new position.

As well as these general skills, you may want to build your expertise in a particular field. The 100 Most Popular Courses During the Pandemic shows which courses people are interested in, including computer sciencemachine learningprogrammingentrepreneurship, and improving your English. Or you can browse our Subjects to find courses in your field of interest.

And on a different note, applying for endless jobs can be a depressing business. Join more than 2 million learners in The Science of Well-Being from Yale and learn how to increase your happiness and build more productive habits.
