Are there any free online self-paced courses that will actually help me find work? I want to hear about all possibilities.
I was thinking of brushing up on my coding skillz, but I read varying reports on whether one can get a programming job without a CS degree. Opinions on this are welcome. Extra snowflake stuff inside.

About me, if it helps: I have a BSc in physics (with a few programming courses and a little work experience), an environmental protection technology diploma (with a little work experience), and a couple of years of administrative experience. I'm working as an admin while I'm looking for more enviro jobs.
I'd love to add to my current skills by putting in an hour or two of online coursework in the evenings - but only if it will actually make me more employable. If there isn't anything like that, I'd rather work on learning to sew!
