There is no excuse not to update your MS Office and other computer skills
There are very few jobs out there that don’t require some level of computer skills. You know that because you probably used those skills on your last job.
But that was version: a long time ago. Surely MS Office and all that goes with it – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, et.al. – have newer versions with newer capabilities and techniques. Surely they do.
There are many places where you can take a course to upgrade your skills. That should come as no surprise. But you can’t afford to spend 6-8 or, even four weeks taking a course when you’re looking for a job today and you need to have those skills today.
Also, not surprising, there are innumerable online sources where you can upgrade or update your MS Office skills – today. In fact, it’s not “innumerable.” A simple Google search revealed 347 million hits related to updating those skills.
There are sources such as: openclassrooms.com and thebalancecareer.com for starters. There are 243 listings on lynda.com for MS Office skills updates. Speaking of lynda.com, many of those courses may available free through your local library. Check it out.
If you desire more visual learning, YouTube has literally hundreds of videos on MS Office skills of varying lengths and complexity. Something for everyone.
The best part of many of these lessons is that you can take as much as you like, whenever you like (or have the time) and do it all from the comfort of your own home.
Google and YouTube searches are the best places to start. Friends and colleagues certainly can help as can your local librarian.
It’s all there for the taking.
