In today's difficult economy, being prepared for the workforce is more important than ever. That's why The Skanner's 2008 Careers issue focuses on everyday technology – all the ways individuals can be computer literate and ready to bolster their job skills with simple tools that can make anyone's work easier.
You don't have to be a computer programmer to create an online business, or a professional writing or consulting portfolio on the Web. Using electronic equipment available at the local department store, you can bump up your efficiency and find ways to succeed in any job.
In this issue we focus on two local professionals and the ways they found success in their careers by a fearless approach to new ideas and technologies. Damali ayo, an artist, author and performer, just this month opened a new clothing line – entirely on the Internet. Johnell Bell, a member of Multnomah County Chair Ted Wheeler's staff, is in the midst of an ongoing effort to digitize more local government functions in such a way that citizens can have more input on county operations.
One common theme links both individuals profiled here: a willingness to learn more and more about new avenues of communication.
As always The Skanner encourages our readers to Shape a Better Future Now.
