~3 things I want to learn in 2009~
1. How to create a PDF file. I think it's easy, but I've never done it, so we'll see. It's best to have your resume in a PDF so when you send it electronically, the formatting doesn't get all wonky.
2. Some basic --> advanced graphic design-like skills. You know, like putting frames around pictures, decorative frames preferably, not just a black border. Well, to be entirely honestly, I'd like to be an expert in graphic design, but I'm not sure that's a realistic goal (for this year anyway). I wish I knew how to create neat digital elements for use in scrapbooking. That would be an ultimate work-from-home job.
3. Some basic Microsoft Access & Publisher skills, as well as Dreamweaver. I think these could come in quite handy over time. My workplace offers free on-line classes for these and I've signed up for them. I can do them anytime, but I'm thinking July will be the best time, as I'll only have graduate class to worry about then.
