Career Transition

Boost Your Resume with Skills and Certifications

Whether you’ve been out of the workforce for a while or you’ve been stuck in a rut, it can be difficult to compete in the modern job hunt with younger workers with technological know-how. With training and certifications, you can easily showcase your existing experience and get the technical expertise you need to stand out from the crowd, compete with younger workers, and secure a great career.

Adding relevant skills and certifications to your resume is a powerful way to showcase your expertise and commitment to professional development. Skills, whether technical, such as proficiency in a new software, or soft, like effective communication or problem-solving, demonstrate your ability to adapt and thrive in various work environments. Certifications, on the other hand, serve as tangible evidence of your specialized knowledge and competencies in a specific area. Together, they paint a comprehensive picture of your capabilities, making your resume not just a summary of past roles, but a compelling argument for your future potential.

What Our Students Are Saying

It all started with my lay-off from Boeing. I thought my life was over. Not so. I am doing so well and I want you to share this with you. Career Development Solutions and OneStop gave me the opportunity for CompTIA Network+ and CCNA training which is making me glow at work. I am so appreciative to Lisa, Jeremy and Marcy from OneStop...oh and Marcus who is an awesome IT mentor. My life has been forever changed. I strive to grow and learn everyday. You’re awesome. I had to stop and say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was thinking of all my thankfulness as the year winds down.
I thought I would reach out and get some courses or certifications and it took me to a whole different field...I was able to get certified in some of the subjects, and after I put them on my resume I was able to find a job. Career Development Solutions was the best thing that happened to me because it put me on the right track to where I wanted to be and it was when I most needed it.
I was able to get a job from my training at Career Development Solutions! This is my first job that offers me benefits. I'm so excited! I hope to build a career with this company and will definitely keep you updated on my progress. Thank you again!
Well, in the very beginning, I thought that I would prefer in-person learning. But then, after the first online class, I said, "This is great." I felt like it was a plus. I could be alone to mess up. I really did enjoy the online class. I liked it because I didn't have to think about anything else. I didn't have to know all those people. I just had to tell myself, "Concentrate and study." I was glad that I was at home.
