Microsoft unveils new online employment resource

Microsoft has created a website, Elevate America, which is aimed at improving access to job training tools.

According to the software giant, the site provides resources to help individuals gain the technical skills needed for acquiring jobs. The economy has led to the loss of 3.6 million jobs since the recession began in December 2007. About half of the decline occurred in the last three months, recent Labor Department data revealed.

The website provides access to several Microsoft online training programs, including how to use the Internet, send e-mail and create a resume, as well as more advanced programs on using specific Microsoft applications.
