Q. I'm in my early sixties and never learned computer skills because I had assistants that did that. Now that I lost my job and am trying to find a new one, I find everyone expects me to be able to surf the Internet. I haven't a clue. I think I'm too old to learn that and don't know where to start. It would be embarrassing to sit in a class with young people and try.
Ans. It is more embarrassing to lack an important, necessary skill that almost everyone else in the workforce has. Before you do anything else, learn to work that computer in a class at the library, a senior center, or local schools. Don't leave home without them.
