Digital Literacy Classes are available to anyone with or without computer experience. The workshop will cover four area: computer basics, how to search for and apply for jobs online, basics of social media and the dos and don’ts of using the internet, and how to get from website to website and use job search applications.
Workshops are offered once a week for four hours with the opportunity to use the computer lab for an additional 2 hours. The training is between 6 and 10 weeks in length.
Shujuane Martin, CEO and President of the Private Industry Council says “This is a great opportunity for anyone who is not quite sure of themselves when using a computer, tablet or smart phone to learn how to job search and apply for jobs so they can compete in a digital world”. She further encourages, “people of all ages are able to enroll, the program will not only be offered at the 3 PA CareerLink offices in Lemont Furnace, Fayette County, Youngwood and New Kensington in Westmoreland County, but will also be offered in a mobile version and can come to a location near you!”
These workshops are made possible by a grant from the PA Department of Labor, Bureau of Workforce Development Administration.
