What Should be on the Department of Labor’s Computer Desktops

It appears that most visitors to the Department of Labor are applying for unemployment, an epidemic that has occurred for the last several years now, though the Department of Labor should be an agency that majors in helping clients acquire employment and/or train for better jobs.

Computer desktops at the agency should reflect this to the greatest possible extent by exhibiting shortcuts to not only DOL job sites; they should exhibit those leading to all of the major job sites, from Indeed.com and Career Builder to FlexJobs, et cetera, et cetera.

Typing and Other Tutorials/Online Learning

All Department of Labor branches (and public libraries) should additionally allow patrons to learn and practice typing to increase speed and accuracy utilizing online typing tutorial sites and/or software like Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing* that allow for personal account creation and printing of speed and accuracy certificates, which could be uploaded to job applications...

*Some though not all branches of the Department of Labor (and certain public libraries) have typing software on client computers.

All DOL branches should too allow for online job training via sites like Alison, Lynda.com, and LinkedIn Learning, etc.

Remote  Employment Labs 

All DOL sites should additionally allow patrons to work for pay online in remote employment labs and on specific computers designated for this purpose. The desktops of these specific computers should have shortcuts to varied sites via which patrons could legitimately work online for pay.

DOL could charge clients for this privilege or forthwith access to all equipment like computers, printers, headsets, business phones to which they could forward calls, etc., and the professional atmosphere, of course…

DOL desktop shortcuts could further include public transportation route scheduling pages to help patrons get to their new jobs, if necessary, popular professional networking sites like Linkedin, etc., and others websites like the Internal Revenue Service, the Social Security Administration, the Department of Human Services, and others of relevance to employment and human resources...
