Udacity Offers Laid Off U.S. Workers Free Access to Full Catalog

Layoffs have affected hundreds of thousands of people in the United States in the past year. Unfortunately, the unsettling trend continues. According to the Challenger Report, U.S. job cuts in March 2024 were the highest since January 2023, up 7% over February. The experience of being laid off is stressful to say the least. And the subsequent job hunt is often no less stressful.

At the same time, thousands of companies are hiring, with the Technology sector second only to the Energy sector for the most new positions announced in the first quarter of the year. There are opportunities out there! However, there is often a mismatch between open positions, sought after roles, skill sets, and locations.

As more candidates compete for jobs, professionals who develop in-demand skills are qualified for more opportunities and have the option to make the leap onto a new career path. Which is why, starting today, we’re giving anyone laid off in the U.S. in the past year a free, All Access pass to Udacity’s entire catalog for 30 days. Go here to register.

Adding In-Demand Skills a Proven Approach to Landing a New Job

Whether you’re an experienced programmer looking to branch out into the latest Generative AI platforms, a mid-career Data Analyst seeking to strengthen your portfolio, or a newcomer to coding who is ready to take the next step in your tech career – Udacity has a learning path with real-world projects for you.

Here are just a few recent examples of people who secured a new job shortly after completing a relevant Udacity Nanodegree program:
