The Internet Age and ICT Skills
Nowadays, the use of Internet is very important in everyone’s daily life, including looking for work. Most vacancies are available on the web, in specialised websites. Most of these websites will ask you to upload your CV where thousands of employers can view it. The Internet can be used as a research tool when looking for local training, child care or planning your transport journey. If your surfing skills on the Internet are rusty then you need to improve these skills before starting this section.
