Soft Skills / Professional Development April!

April 1st, 2020

JibberJobber YouTube LiveI finally decided to bite the bullet and do something that scares me: Youtube Live videos. Here’s my channel. And I’m jumping into the deep end, committed to help all the WFH people do something every Monday-Friday for the entire month of April!

Each day I’ll have a chat around soft skills or professional development courses I’ve created for Pluralsight. Below you’ll see the schedule for the month… You can see I started this morning (click the youtube link to see the recording).

Unless something big comes up, I’ll do these at 10 am (MST). You can see the most current link on my Twitter feed (twitter.com/jasonalba – follow me there or just check in daily).

If you have time, watch the linked courses before each call. I plan on treating the conversation more like a book club dialog rather than rehashing what I cover in the course. Feel free to share this with anyone you want… and hope to “see” you there!
