From the Monrovia city manager's weekly report:
The Monrovia Public Library is piloting a new job resource called Job Scout through October, 2013. Currently in beta testing, Job Scout is digital literacy tools that helps users gain the internet skills necessary to look for a job in today’s market. This resource was built in cooperation with the California State Library.
With 1 in 5 people in the United States lacking the necessary internet skills needed to find a job in today’s marketplace, Job Scout uses social game design to engage users in self-paced, online activities that focus on internet competencies applied in a real life context.
Job Scout is currently available on the Library’s website under Education and Careers. For more information, Job Scout can be found at www.myjobscout.org or call the Library at 626-256-8274 and ask for the Adult Reference Desk.
