Six Reasons Why Online Learning is More Effective

Jenna Meyerson 07/10/2020
 

Do you want to build your skillset to land a better job or improve your chances of getting a promotion?

If you answered yes to that question, but don’t know how to go about getting the education you need to succeed, online learning might just be the best option for you.

The internet and other learning technologies have completely transformed the idea of professional education as students are no longer restricted to classrooms.

One of the biggest reasons why online learning has outdone the traditional classroom model in popularity is because it offers quality lessons from expert teachers on the student’s schedule.

This means that you do not need to choose between your career and education anymore because online classes offer ultimate convenience and flexibility to move forward in your career.

We present several more reasons why you should look into online avenues of learning to help propel your career to greater heights.

5x Work From Home Roles you can Learn At Home

Anthony Pollock 23/09/2020
 

When it comes to 2020 everyone is dealing with frustrations. From all walks of life, there are challenges everyone is facing. Job loss, mental health challenges and not to mention the delicate juggling act of homeschooling. It’s fair to say Covid-19 has thrown 2020 a veritable curveball. 

What do you do with the elevated stress or when the tension is so high? How do you keep your psyche in check? Or better yet, what do you do when Covid-19 has taken away that feeling of no longer being in control? 

As an employee for an Online Educational Institution (MCI Institute), I feel a certain degree of empathy for places like Melbourne (currently in stage 4 lockdown). Part of my job involves talking with everyday Aussies and Travellers who are thinking about studying. It can be tough for anyone in that situation when trying to look beyond the immediate four walls of your home. 

How do you get back that feeling of control when you’ve been made Redundant, are stuck on Job Keeper or worse – lost your job? 

Since March, Seek and Indeed.com have reported on a steady (dare I say rapid) increase of businesses hiring Work From Home and Flexible Workers in response to the New Normal. At the time of writing this article, Seek currently has over 12,000 roles advertised throughout Australia and, interestingly enough, they’re not all in Metro areas.

But how does this help me, you might ask?

If you’re like me then you’re probably working in a job or have had a career that doesn’t necessarily make sense in this New Normal of Work From Home positions. At least that’s what you’ve thought. 

Here at MCI Institute, we’re talking to hundreds of students every month and there’s a constant that keeps coming up in our conversations: Change is in the air. Employees are looking at their roles differently. Even the Long term unemployed are seeing opportunities in the wind. Even Businesses are looking at themselves internally and asking ‘How do we Adapt? How do we become resilient in the wake of Covid-19?’

How do you reclaim that Control in your Life? How do I get a piece of that Work From Home pie? 

To assist you, we’ve put together a list of 5 of the Most sought after Work From Home Positions. Positions that we discuss daily, not only with students but with Employers as well.

Peer to Peer: Fundamentals an HR Associate Looks For

Ligia Chelotti 01/11/2019
 

As a department, HR has gone through multiple changes over the last two decades giving it an ever-evolving role in today's organisation. Previously, HR performed more of an administrative role rather than a strategic one. In the traditional sense, its primary function was to ensure compliance with employment laws and maintain employee retention.

But now that role has broadened to a more strategic capacity and has become more involved in business operations. This role now presents HR teams that are more empowered while also acting as an advocate for the employees.

Today, working in HR takes someone who doesn’t hesitate to solve problems, can improve processes, gauge achievements, and develop systems. In addition, HR professionals should be proficient in dealing with an organisation’s culture, and most importantly, its workforce- the employees.

As such, HR professionals need to excel in the areas of organisation, communication, discretion, and flexibility to manage their daily undertakings and boost productivity.
