Internet Literacy and Job Searching Skills

March 7, 2012

Something I see library patrons struggle with every day is basic internet literacy – creating an email account, downloading attachments, simple internet searches, etc. A lot of people use library computers to look for work, but they have difficulty filling out the fields to apply for a job. Many public libraries offer weeknight and weekend afternoon seminars to teach patrons basic internet skills, but budget constraints often force libraries to hold these classes very infrequently. For my final project, I would like to create a website that provides a description and schedule of internet literacy and job search skills classes via a fictional public library.

    I think a better thing to do is create a resource which delineates all the tasks, skills and steps necessary to get a job via electonic/NET means (eg, “you have to have an email address, here’s how”, you have to have an electronic resume, here’s how to make a PDF from a Word doc, etc).
