Calling all career girlies: What do your professional goals look like? Whether you dream of becoming an iconic influencer or crushing it in the tech field, it’s important to have the right skills to get you there. 

It’s no secret that career skills can be gained by taking the right classes, being part of a related on-campus organization, or completing an internship. But did you know there’s a simple way to build valuable career skills anywhere, anytime? All you have to do is use Adobe Express — the all-in-one content creation app that makes it fast, easy, and fun to create and share standout designs.

It’s time for your career glow-up, besties. Here are four ways Adobe Express can help you boost your skills, no matter what your goals look like.

Learn Content Creation Skills (No Experience Required!)

Being able to create high-quality content is a valuable skill in so many industries like advertising, public relations, and even education! With Adobe Express, anyone can master creating standout content, regardless of skill level. Even if you’re just diving into the world of content creation, the app makes it super simple to design and share everything from social media posts to mood boards, collages, and so much more. 

Build a Beautiful Portfolio, Resume, or Media Kit to Show What You Can Do

Need a way to showcase your experience and work to potential employers? Adobe Express has you covered with pre-made templates you can use to create your own portfolio, resume, or media kit. With hundreds of options to choose from, you’ll be able to find one that fits your vibe — whether you’re going for a clean, minimalist look or something bold and creative. Or, create something unique by starting from scratch! Just select a size for your project, then drag and drop text, shapes, design assets, and more to bring your experience to life. You’ll look like a pro before you even get to the interview!

Edit Photos and Videos
