For those in IT

You simply must check this out!
Microsoft will provide technology training to up to 2 million people over the next three years to help them succeed in the 21st century economy.

The initiative, called Elevate America, will offer a website where people can understand the technical skills they will need for the jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities of today and tomorrow and provide the resources to help acquire these skills.

The Web site, http://www.microsoft.com/ElevateAmerica, provides access to several Microsoft online training programs, including how to use the Internet, send e-mail and create a resume, as well as more advanced programs on using specific Microsoft applications
It looks like the courses are entirely online. I haven't fully explored it but this may be just the ticket for some of us looking for a leg up in this economy.
