Microsoft is launching a new initiative that aims to equip individuals the necessary skills needed to land them a good job. The initiative would include providing access to Microsoft’s online training programs including use of email, creating resume and even some training materials on using Microsoft’s applications and programs.
As part of this initiative, Microsoft has launched a new website called Elevate America. This website contains relevant tools and materials that would help individuals gain the technical skills they need to land good jobs, or even start entrepreneurial endeavors.
Microsoft is also partnering with state and local governments to make Microsoft’s resources available to their constituents. Florida, New York and Washington are the first three states which will make this resources to their citizens.
So if you’re in need of some good technology-related training materials and programs, Elevate America would be a good place to start. Microsoft is even generously providing free vouchers that would grant you access to various Microsoft certification programs.
