In response to the 2023 UAB Campus Engagement Survey, UAB Learning & Development features a career development tool within LinkedIn Learning that helps employees grow in their current role or build toward a future role. 

LinkedIn Learning's Career Goals feature offers a personalized approach to navigating career paths and achieving professional aspirations. It allows you to tailor your learning experience based on three distinct objectives:

  • Advancing within your current career
  • Transitioning into a new field
  • Enhancing your skills in team management

This flexibility allows you to chart a course that aligns with your career ambitions and aspirations, explains Learning & Development Manager Jerad Watson. On May 6, 2024 at 11 a.m., Watson and Learning & Development Specialist Alison Knisely will host a 30-minute virtual session to explore the intricacies of the Career Goals feature. LinkedIn Learning representatives Kaitlyn Jackson and Wes Pompe will be on hand to answer questions and provide insights into the latest enhancements. Register here.

"LinkedIn Learning is more than just a platform; it's a user-friendly solution for skill development," Watson said. "LinkedIn Learning enables you to explore new skills, stay updated with industry trends, and advance your career while you work and at no cost to benefit-eligible UAB staff and faculty."
