February RoundTable – Helping Job Seekers with Low Computer Skills

February 21st, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

** This month’s RoundTable is POSTPONED due to weather. The new date is Tuesday, March 6, 2012 **

 

The Minnesota Career Development Association (MCDA) offers monthly RoundTable meetings that focus on selected career development topics to help us become better practitioners.  Round Tables also serve as a time to network with colleagues working in a variety of sectors.  Note that you do not need to be a MCDA member. We encourage you to spread the word to your non-MCDA member colleagues!

Helping Job Seekers with Low Computer Skills in a Digital Age

We live in a digital world where people apply for jobs online or on an in-store computerized kiosk. Jobs listings are found on websites and mobile apps. Networking has moved to Twitter and LinkedIn. And job interviews are done via Skype.

What does all of this mean for job seekers who are older, have disabilities, or simply don’t have access to technology? How can we help job seekers with low digital literacy to compete in today’s job market? And what affect will the growing use of technology have on the workplace. Who can benefit in this digital age and who will be left out?
