In “Getting A Good Job Is A Matter Of Luck?“, Minimum Wage asked, “How do you keep your skills current if you have a menial dead-end job?” I believe that despite your situation, where there’s a will, there’s a way. Since I don’t know where Minimum Wage lives and the kind of skills he seeks, I will just cite some common organizations that offer some sort of free job training.

Organizations that offer free job training and some examples:
- Community Colleges
- Public Libraries
- Government Agencies
- Non-profit Organizations
This is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many more sites that either give you, or can lead you to free training materials.
Additionally, you can also:
- Ask your manager for more responsibilities. Most employers are willing to provide on the job training, if you are willing to do more without asking for more money immediately.
- Ask friends and family to help you if they have particular skills you sought after.
- Go to the library and read books
- Get online and surf the Web
