Component Two:  Computer Skills (Online Component)

Basic computer skills are taught in this section.  The two programs that are used are MicroSoft Word and MicroSoft Excel.  In MS Word, you will learn to create a new file, enter text, save, and print a file.  You will learn how to create a cover letter, resume, and thank you letter.  In MSExcel, you will learn to enter data, save and open workbooks, print workbooks, format spreadsheets, and create charts and graphs.

Component Three:  Work Keys (Completed at Your Workforce WV Center)

After you complete all of the components of Hit the Ground Running, you will take a nationally-recognized employment test called "Work Keys."  More and more employers are beginning to use this test as a screening tool for hiring new employees or job promotion.   In preparation for the three sections of this test, Reading for Information, Locating Information, and Applied Mathematics, you will receive study materials from your local Work4WV Center.
