LA ORT Promotes Digital Literacy Through Business Program
Digital literacy is so much more than using a smartphone. In order to succeed in today’s workforce, you need to know how to navigate office applications and use the Internet to organize, send and plan projects.
According to the United States Department of Commerce, the Internet is a central part of most jobs.
Sixty-two percent of Americans use the Internet regularly as a part of their jobs.
Are you a little behind in your computer skills? Don’t worry. You’re not alone, and LA ORT can help. You see: 28% of Americans don’t use the Internet at all (and a third of households don’t have an Internet connection).
Nowadays, you have to be fairly advanced at basic computer programs and internet use to even get an interview at an office. That’s where we come in!
If you’re just starting out, LA ORT can give you the computer and Internet skills you need to pursue an exciting business career. If you or someone you know can use the extra digital training, take a look at our administrative assistant degree.
