Globally, Udemy offers 40,000 online courses in 80 different languages. The Careers24 team has identified a selection of those courses that are best suited for the South African market, as well as those that relate to the strongest job offering sectors in South Africa. The courses will be available on the Careers24 website under the Courses tab.

“Our strategic partnership with Udemy means that we are able to align their courses to our job offerings. In essence meaning we will be able to advise candidates who lack specific skills for a particular job advertisement on what they need in order to apply successfully for a desired position. This is going to help us focus on providing tools and services that help candidates make informed decisions about their next job application,” says Marc Privett, Careers24 GM.

Udemy is dedicated to helping people around the world build the lives they imagine through online learning. All Udemy courses are available on demand and students have lifetime access to the content allowing them to learn at their own pace. In addition, Udemy courses can be taken on a computer, tablet, or smartphone, and the content can be viewed offline, which provides education anywhere and anytime.

“Udemy delivers a wide variety of practical knowledge that helps people fill gaps in their skill sets and gain a competitive edge in today’s employment market,” says Richard Qiu, VP of Business Development at Udemy. “We’re thrilled to partner with Careers24 to help South Africans reach both their personal and career goals.”

“Careers24 is one of South Africa’s biggest online job portals so it makes complete sense for us to partner with Udemy,” adds Privett. “What we are now able to offer jobseekers is going to place us head and shoulders above the rest of the market. The partnership is an investment in technology that is going to help us further meet the needs of both jobseekers and recruiters. But more than that, we are thrilled to be able to offer our users real support in the form of a 360-degree focus on their needs.”
