Adding a certification to your resume can help you stand out as an applicant in a competitive job market. Many online courses provide a certificate, for little to no cost, that you can put on your resume as further evidence of proficiency in a particular area. If you’re not currently seeking employment, you may also benefit from taking online courses as they are a great opportunity to learn more about a specific aspect of the field you currently work in or to explore a different area that interests you.
