Ideas and Advice for Building Side Gigs at Your Day Job

We all know we should be continually learning and expanding our skillset to advance our career (or sometimes just to keep a job!). It can be hard to find the time or get the opportunity to stretch our muscles and develop new skills. Even if you’re happy with your job, it’s sometimes good to try something different or to see other parts of the company where you work. In all of these cases, a side gig at work might be just the thing for your career!

In this session, we will discuss some of the skills and software the presenter has acquired to make herself indispensable to her employers, and we will discuss and explore what attendees can do in their own jobs to develop new skills, learn other aspects of their business, or just try something new. This session is meant to be interactive, motivational, and fun. Get out of your comfort zone, think creatively, and move toward the future with the help of the presenter and the other attendees.

Frequently Asked Questions

When do education events take place?

Webinars are held every Wednesday afternoon from 2-3 PM EDT/EST (GMT-4/5).

A majority of online courses are held Tuesdays-Thursdays between 10:00 AM-1:00 PM EDT/EST (GMT-4/5), as to not conflict with webinar times.

When will I receive the GoTo Webinar instructions for an event?

Registered attendees will receive the GoTo Webinar instructions three (3) hours before the webinar begins, approximately at 11:00 AM EDT/EST.

Registered attendees will receive the GoTo Webinar instructions one (1) day before the online course begins.

To participate in a webinar and an online course, you must be able to access GoTo Webinar, STC’s online meeting space.  GoTo Webinar is a standard web seminar tool (no separate download required) and all you need is a reliable Internet connection and phone line, or a computer with VoIP capabilities.

I registered for an online course, what are my next steps?

Once you register for an online course, you will receive a confirmation receipt that day. A majority of our online courses uses Moodle, STC’s course management site, which attendees will receive the login instructions two (2) days before the course begins.

If you cannot access Adobe Connect and/or Moodle (as needed), then you will not be able to successfully complete an online course.

I registered for a webinar, but will be unable to attend. Will a recording be available?

If a registered attendee is unable to attend a webinar that day, they will receive an email with a link to the recording, and an evaluation link along with the PDF of the presentation.

I registered for a webinar and/or an online course, but cannot attend at that time. Will I receive a refund?

If a registered attendee is unable to attend a webinar and/or an online course, the cost is transferable to a future event, but is not refundable. Online registration closes one-two business days before the education event begins.

I want to take a specific course that isn't listed online. Will it be offered in the future?

STC rotates its courses every year as we try to offer the most popular ones within the first half of the year. Online courses are subject to change or are offered more than once per quarter. If a course is not listed, STC will offer it again in the following year.
