The holiday season is upon us, and for many people the stress of finding the "perfect" gift for a loved one is a constant struggle. That's why this year we have compiled a list of five courses that can make a perfect gift even for the most difficult people to shop for. And with the gift of education, you never have to worry about it going out of style, not fitting properly or running out of batteries.
Here's our list of five awesome classes you can give as gifts:

  1. Social Media Marketing: Social media is incorporated into just about every aspect of life so why not give a gift that can help your loved one stay connected and technically savvy? Whether you know someone who is just breaking into the field of marketing or someone who simply wants to know the difference between Twitter and Facebook, our Social Media Marketing courses provide hands-on training in the practical and strategic components of social media marketing.
  2. Human Resource Management: Help your family and friends move up in their careers. Whether they're interested in a career change and new to the human resource field or looking to advance as an HR professional, Cal State East Bay's selection of one-day courses in HR Management can be tailored to fit any educational and professional goals.
  3. Nonprofit Management: Give the gift of empowerment. Enroll your loved one in a Nonprofit Management course and equip them with the skills to support their cause in the most effective ways. Our Nonprofit Management courses prepare current and aspiring professionals to become qualified and knowledgeable nonprofit staff, administrators, board members and volunteers.
