Google Career Certificates

As part of National Small Business week (first week of May), I wanted to share some exciting news with you that will work to help more SC businesses attract and retain talent – Google is offering every business in the US up to 500 Google Career Certificate scholarships to train, upskill, and reskill their employees in critical digital skills, a workforce training package worth up to $100,000 per company that American businesses can use to provide employees with new skills and opportunities for growth.
 
The Google Career Certificates – which provide transferable, industry recognized credentials in high-growth fields – allow job seekers and employees alike the opportunity to gain new digital skills that are becoming increasingly critical in our digital economy.
 
Our Certificates are available across key digital competencies, including in IT Support, Data Analytics, User Experience Design, Project Management. Our newly announced E-Commerce and Digital Marketing will help connect businesses with the digital skills needed to use tools and platforms across seven industry-leading partners, including Canva, Constant Contact, Hootsuite, HubSpot, Mailchimp, Shopify, and Twitter. Even more, Certificate graduates will have access to our employer consortium, which is made up of more than 150 companies committed to considering Career Certificate graduates for entry-level positions.
