Basic Computer Skills for Work View details

This course is intended for job seekers who have never used a computer before, but now need to in order to find and apply for jobs. We will look at the very basics of using a computer (mouse, keyboard), and how to navigate around the screen, store and organise files (including any CV your adviser may have prepared for you), and how to make minor edits to it with a word processor. In the second session, we go on-line, looking at basic Internet safety, using a browser and a search engine, how to set up and use an email address, how to use that email address to send someone your CV. Finally we look at the Government find-a-job site, and look at how to assess whether we want to apply for a job, and how to do so. There will be ample revision of the basic skills throughout - no-one expects you to remember everything on one hearing! What we do not cover is how to write a CV, or more than the basics of how to write a cover letter - this is about the technical IT aspects of the task.
