The SCALES Computer Use Tool Kit (2012)

This document is one of the resources developed through the SCALES (Supporting the Canadian Advancement of Literacy and Essential Skills) project, undertaken by CONNECT Strategic Alliances, representing Ontario’s 24 publicly funded colleges. It offers tips on seeking job postings online and, at the same time, improving computer skills.

The authors explain how to find company websites and look for job postings; gather information about available positions; and complete an online application.

They also explain how to format a resumé and provide a sample one for reference.

The goal of the SCALES project was to develop tools and best practices that would help practitioners working with unemployed and low-skilled workers to incorporate a Literacy and Essential Skills (LES) approach into their work.
