More and more jobs require computer skills. Some employers require all jobseekers to apply online for jobs. Many jobs require employees to know how to use a email, search the internet, create documents, and handle other digital literacy tasks.
When people lose jobs that did not require computer skills, they often have to apply for unemployment benefits online. When they start looking for new jobs, they may find that computer skills they don't yet have are required.
Building computer skills, and being able to prove these skills to employers, can improve job seeking success.
