Jobseekers 'worried by their lack of computer skills'

A new report by The Prince's Trust has revealed that young jobseekers are increasingly worried about the impact that their lack of computer skills is having on their ability to find work.

According to the organisation's statistics, one in ten unemployed people does not know how to send their CV online and a quarter actually dread filling in online applications. Sadly, a further one in six unemployed youngsters feel that, had they better computer skills, they would currently be in work and ten per cent are in fact embarrassed by the technological gap in their knowledge.

Our lives are increasingly played out online and without these skills, youngsters are missing out on a wealth of opportunities - not least to send their CV out to prospective employers but also to access the thousands of vacancies advertised online and use valuable professional networking sites such as LinkedIn.

As Martina Milburn, The Prince’s Trust chief executive, says: "A lack of computer literacy can hold young people back and this is damaging their job prospects."
