The Brashear Neighborhood Employment Center will offer a series of introductory computer classes from Wednesday, May 13 through June 17.
The six-week session is designed to take the adult learner with limited experience working with computers to a level of proficiency so the adult learner can apply for jobs on-line. Some of the classes are: Mastering the Mouse; Introduction to Microsoft Windows; It's the Internet; Remember Your Grammar!; and Do's and Don'ts on a Resume and Cover Letter.
Michelle Flannery, employment specialist at The Brashear Association, will be the instructor for the classes.
“These classes will allow participants to gain confidence and skills as they learn basic computer functions. The group approach gives participants the chance to help each other, too. So many employers are asking for on-line applications that I believe this way of applying for jobs is here to stay,” Ms. Flannery said. “If you have never worked on a computer before or your computer skills are lacking, I think this learning style will be informative and fun.”
The Brashear Neighborhood Employment Center receives support from the City of Pittsburgh/Pittsburgh Partnership for Jobs.
