Saratov State University
Learning, Working, Making Friends

Ludmila Kudrina’s life has always been connected with computers – the large, industrial kind. First she worked in a computer science laboratory of a chemical plant and then got a job with the VolgaTelecom Corporation, a market leader of the Russian telecommunications. Paradoxically, she never acquired PC skills until it came time to retire.

Ludmila completed a digital literacy course at the Tvoy Kurs Center of Saratov State University, also attending a follow-up seminar where she learned about online social services and social networks. All the skills came in handy not only in continuing employment but also in her personal life.

Once it came time to retire, she had to leave her job at the VolgaTelecom Corporation, but her PC skills and a working knowledge of MS Office applications soon secured her a new position: now she works as a stock room manager with one of the management companies in her city. Her work responsibilities include electronic record keeping, compiling reports, queries and supply requests, which fully utilizes her MS Word и MS Excel skills.

Recently the alumna bought a home PC, had it connected to the Internet, set up her own an e-mail account, and got registered with one of the social networks. It enabled her to get in touch with old friends, classmates, distant relatives and other acquaintances who live all over the country. Now she uses not only e-mail to exchange messages, but also Skype to chat with them all face to face.

Ludmila is not about to stop her self-improvement program. She continues to learn more about computer technologies by visiting the Microsoft website and trying out various Internet services. He life motto is, “Always learning, always working, always making friends!”
