Get Free Skills Certifications at Brainbench

In the post I wrote recently entitled 5 Tips to Get Hired Doing Online Jobs at oDesk and, I emphasized the importance of taking tests and certifications relevant to your skills on your profile so that potential employers can assess if you're fit for their job opening and you might end up getting more job offers. One website that you should know about concerning this is Brainbench.

Brainbench is a program which gives people the opportunity to get 600+ certifications for skills which they can use to enhance their resume or CV. Whether you are a professional or not, freelancer, part-time or full-time career person, working in fields like computer programming, web designer, business accounting, engineering, medical transcription, writing, etc, you can find a certification for you here.

Registering to the site is free and there are a dozen free skills tests available but most require a payment of $49.95 or member subscription.  Now, the GOOD NEWS is Brainbench is holding the event called Bench Games where all members can have free access to ALL the certifications. You read that right - ALL FREE. But it will just be for a limited time period, from March 5 - 9, 2012.

Bench Games is actually a worldwide competition. It is a search for the top country that certifies the most number of citizens and the country that certifies the most citizens at Master level (score of 4.0 and above). Individuals who get the highest score in any given test will also be awarded a Brainbench subscription worth $199.

So, if you're looking forward to pumping up your resume with additional skills certifications, take advantage of the opportunity to do so at the Bench Games. If you're not yet registered to Brainbench, why not do so now? Tell also your friends about it. You can find more info on the Bench Games here.


  1. Hi reese. How are you? Glad you dropped by.

  2. Oh, I missed the free event! :(

    I opened an account with Odesk to accommodate a client request. So far, I'm having fun with the free tests.

    Maybe next time, I'll be luckier and in a better loop for Brainbench certification.... Congratulations again on your special award, Chin!

  3. Hi Teecup. Glad to see you leave your thoughts here. Taking the free tests at oDesk is interesting. You get to see where you stand regarding the skills you have.

    There are some free tests you can take at Brainbench though not many. Maybe next time they have a bench games again...

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice.

When we came back to the Philipines, I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working.  Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time.

We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

My PureIt Excella Water Purifier Review

Last December, we bought a PureIt Excella water purifier at SM Megamall. After almost 7 months of using it, I can say that it was a good decision.

Why Buy a Water Purifier?

That is the primary reason I wanted to buy a water purifier. With a portable water purifier at home, I don’t have to ask my husband or my sons to buy mineral or filtered water at nearby water vendors. I know there are free home delivery services, but I think having our own water filter is still the most convenient. No calling. No waiting. No hassle.

The only question is which brand of water purifier should we buy? It’s a good thing we discovered …
