Natalia Ilyina: “Now I do my work much faster!”
Untitled Photo Natalia Ilyina from Tambov finally found employment after being out of work for more than six months. Of course she wanted to show herself to good advantage, but the very first days in the new workplace put a wet blanket on her initial enthusiasm. One of her job responsibilities was compiling photo tables with more than a hundred photos in one file. Creating photo tables in MS Word and printing them out took the better part of her work day and she had little time for anything else. Often she even had photos printed in a photo studio paying for prints out of her own pocket, and then pasted them onto paper. Soon she started thinking of taking a computer training course to upgrade her ICT skills and make her work more efficient.

Andrei also learned that an official certificate confirming his ICT expertise would give him a number of privileges including software discounts and other benefits.

A Blessing in Disguise

Good computer skills were one of employers’ standard requirements, but due to her dire financial straits Anna could not afford paid training. The staff of M. Gorky library decided to make an exception and allowed Anna to join the group of the librarians taking Digital Literacy training. A diligent learner, she quickly mastered the material and successfully passed the final test receiving the Digital Literacy Certificate.

Extending Your Career with Your Course: Digital Literacy
Untitled Photo For many years Anatoly Yakovlevich from Togliatti worked as a senior engineer of the technical department at AvtoVAZ, the Russian automobile manufacturer, known to the world under the trade name Lada. Typically a long and successful career means extensive professional experience and willingness to share expertise with coworkers, and since experienced professionals are valuable experts, their retirement can be a big loss for a company. Even though Anatoly is now officially retired, his extensive work experience remains in high demand. How former coworkers constantly ask him for input and advice, but phone conversations are not the most efficient way of problem solving.

Through Microsoft Access to Fully Automated Processes
Untitled Photo At a very early age Sergei Vashlayev from Krasnoyarsk faced a very grim and uncertain future of full disability, but decided to fight the disease and prevailed. Sergei tried his hand at various professions but his job search was made more difficult both by his health limitations and by the economic recession. Still, he refused to let circumstances rule his life and didn’t want to settle for a low-paid menial job that wouldn’t give him any satisfaction. After a long and arduous training with a teacher he had found himself, Sergei became a very skilled woodworker, known for his original designs and trimmings. He started his own business, taking orders from people, and quickly understood that the paperwork had to be automated. He also decided to take his craft to a wider audience through his personal website.

But since ICTs are here to stay, whether one wants to accept it or not, learning to use them has quickly become a must for anyone who wants to be part of the modern workforce.
