About half of job seekers cite company culture as very important when choosing to apply to a company. This is because we like to feel useful, to feel there is purpose to our work and that our colleagues and leaders share our values.

So we teamed up with her to bring you our next course Notion: Harnessing the Power of Knowledge which will be released next week.

G Suite is a powerful productivity tool. This is the tool that startups are built on and that assistants that are pursuing a role in startups/fintech/tech need to master. This intuitive suite of products rivals Microsoft in a way that can convert even the heaviest Office power user. Why? Because so much of it’s functionality is free! Also, because Google is constantly evolving and experimenting. They are great at boiling down the essence of a product and then adding easy accessibility, collaboration and a sprinkling of kickass features.
Google has announced it will be releasing its video conferencing tool Meet, a Zoom competitor, free to all consumer Google accounts this month of May 2020. We will be updating the course with all you need to know about Meet as soon as it has been released – a promising tool specially convenient nowadays when we are all still working from home.
