Free computer skills classes for job seekers

POINT PLEASANT – The Pt. Pleasant Borough branch of the Ocean County Library will offer four computer skills classes for job seekers during the month of March.

The classes include Basic Windows for Job Seekers on Friday, March 9 at 10:00 a.m.; Basic Internet for Job Seekers on Wednesday, March 14 at 10:00 a.m; Basic Email for Job Seekers on Wednesday, March 21 at 1:00 p.m.; and Basic Word for Job Seekers on Monday, March 26 at 1:00 p.m.

The Ocean County Library, working with the NJWorks@yourlibrary initiative, is hosting these classes at the Pt. Pleasant Borough branch, as well as other branches in the library system. NJWorks@yourlibrary is a campaign developed by the New Jersey State Library, to showcase the resources and opportunities being offered through the Broadband Technology Opportunity Program (BTOP) grant received by the New Jersey State Library.

All classes are aimed at improving an individual’s ability to use computers during their job search. The content is all customized to the job search effort. Sessions will cover topics such as an online job search, self-assessment, resume writing, employment applications, interviewing techniques, along with familiarity in the key computer applications that go hand in hand with each topic, i.e. web search engines (Google, etc.), using MS Explorer and MS Word.

The classes are free and open to the public. Please register in-person, by phone at 732-295-1555, or online at http://www.theoceancountylibrary.org. The Pt. Pleasant Borough branch is located at 834 Beaver Dam Rd. in Pt. Pleasant.
