Autodesk Assistance Program... Did you know?

"It's a sign of the Times." We've been hearing it everywhere. I've even said it myself.

There are rumblings about what's hopefully a recovery beginning. Whether we're really seeing it or not is a subject of debate, and I certainly have no crystal ball.

So why am I blogging about this? There's no Inventor Tip, Showcase Tip, story of a trial or tribulation about Vault or iLogic in it.

It's to mention that Autodesk expanded the Autodesk Assistance Program.

If you don't know what the Assistance Program is, it's a program where displaced workers can get assistance with training, free educational licenses of Autodesk software, in order to develop and maintain their skill sets so they have more to offer on their resume in their continuing job search. (More on that HERE)

Today Autodesk announced that they've expanded the program (Click HERE for the press release describing all the benefits).

There's new e-learning offerings avaiable now, and even companies can benefit with reduced cost software when they hire someone who's participated in the program.

Hopefully, you don't need this program (and by 'not needing it' means you're working), but if you are one of those who are looking for work, here's one way to stand out to anyone who's looking to hire.

Good luck out there everyone!
