UPDATE ON iCALIFORNIA DIGITAL Literacy Project

TRAIL 

 

The statewide build out continues for the LINK AMERICAS Foundation iCALIFORNIA Digital Literacy project in collaboration with our partner TRAIL (Technology Resources and Internet Literacy), and its flagship JobScout application.

  JobScout Flyer

  Scale up on JobScout is now statewide with more than 1000 public libraries, local organizations, and workforce locations using the platform in both English and Spanish.

Apps are available in iOS and Android.

Our new URL is www.myjobscout.org   
Check it out, take some lessons and earn badges!

Excellent feedback and modifications from trial locations has resulted in the following new features:

  • The JobScout Social Network: The JobScout social network will allow users to connect with each other to share first-hand experience, techniques and tips on anything from creating a standout resume to interview tactics and even job opportunities.
  • New Lesson Content:  As the Internet continues to grow and expand, so will JobScout. New lessons have been developed to introduce users to even more tools for job search success. Also, lessons focus on privacy and security, how to be more media savvy, social networking and how to find job opportunities online.
  • The “One-Stop” Job Shop: JobScout now has a new feature called the “One-Stop Job Shop." Here users will be able to manage the entire application process from one place on JobScout. This is a great client resource tool for workforce development service agencies!
     
  • Buzz Kits: As a means of making JobScout more tangible, visible and available to librarians and their customers, “Buzz Kits” will be assembled and delivered to library branches equipped with essential informational papers and brochures, stickers and other fun items to hand out as well as posters and postcards to place in common areas.
  • The Librarians’ Page: Librarians are a vital part to the success of JobScout. Our team wants to make all of the resources you need available to you at the click of a mouse. This new JobScout page is being designed with you in mind. The Librarian's Page is a resource to make your involvement in JobScout a simple and streamlined process. We want to put at your disposal as many educational tools and resources as possible. For instance, digital copies of all “Buzz Kit” materials will be made available for easy download. Lesson instructions will also be posted for print outs and lesson reviews.

Make sure to find us online on Facebook and Twitter to share information and updates about JobScout.

We are looking for new partners and more users, so pass on the word!
