How Will Computer Training Help Me in My Career?
Posted: July 5, 2016
It doesn’t matter what field you enter; computer training can help to improve your marketability and advance your career. If you think about “computer” as its own language, becoming proficient in computer is like being bilingual. It can set you apart from your peers and help improve your long term job prospects. Here’s how:
Speed and Efficiency: Computers help you do your job more effectively. The better you are at using them, the better you can do your work. With the right computer training you can become an indispensable part of any business.
Data and information: If you’re well-versed in computer, you understand the trove of data stored on them. More importantly, you can manipulate the data to create meaningful information. And information is power.
Patterns and trends: If you’re familiar with spreadsheet programs like Microsoft Excel, it’s easy to pull data together for analysis. Such insight will allow you to notice patterns and make financial plans and forecasts.
Graphic designs: Whether you work in Excel pulling charts and graphs, or within actual graphic design software, effective visuals can make presentations pop. The ability to tell a story with graphic design is an art and science.
Security: When you speak “computer,” you understand how to keep data and personal information out of the hands of hackers. You don’t fall for scams, and you do follow common sense rules about password protection and company security.
Troubleshooting: The more you know about computers, the more you’ll be the go-to person in any office or work environment. Whether you’re the one who knows how to find files that seemed to have disappeared, or are the only person who can connect new printers and scanners, you improve your worth with every technology you master.
Social media: Most every business today has some sort of presence on the internet. Your knowledge of computers, all their applications and social media can help a company find and engage with its customers. Are you up for the challenge?
