Olenick at ComEd Construct 2021
The Olenick team recently had the opportunity to participate in ComEd Construct 2021 day 1!
Construct is a training program that provides participants with information and guidance needed to compete for well-paying, entry-level field and office jobs in construction-related fields. Our team led an online workshop for more than 100 Construct participants focusing on the key Microsoft productivity applications Outlook and Word.
In the Word training, instruction ranged from navigating the Ribbon to formatting text and pictures. We had the opportunity to discuss how Word is used in professional settings and for personal use.
The Outlook session taught participants how to read and send email, create distribution lists, and schedule meetings in Outlook, Skype, and Teams. We provided tips for organizing email and checklists for common tasks, such as turning on automatic Out of Office replies, creating automatic mail processing rules, and scheduling meetings and appointments.
Our goal for these presentations was for each participant to understand the value and importance of these tools in addition to their core features. We spoke on how using these tools will help them showcase themselves as professionals that companies will want to represent them. Through practical examples and experiences, we were able to connect with participants and help them develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be a professional capable of working remotely.
Thank you to our wonderful team for contributing their time to leading these sessions online, answering participants’ questions, and making this a great experience for everyone involved! A huge thank you to all the participants who inspire us with their hard work and dedication. We look forward to continuing our partnership!
