Four important computer skills to get you employed

Four fundamental computer skills to get you employed

In modern society, having strong computer skills makes you more employable across any job market. If you are not proficient in the most fundamental skills, you must learn them.  The most important tech skills you must master are – Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point and Outlook. If you are familiar with the essentials, it is recommended that you further your understanding and become an expert by asking your colleagues or attending Microsoft Suite classes.

Computer skills to get you employed

Microsoft Word

computer skills

Microsoft Word is an excellent word processing application that is typically used to write reports, business proposal, academic research papers and resumes. Virtually all employees in modern society should have some familiarity with this program, as any work environment that needs to produce written material will need the benefits of Word.

If you are already familiar with basic word uses, it is recommended that you brush up on executing more complex tasks such as formatting documents, merging mail and modifying macro scripts, in order to really impress recruiters.

Microsoft Excel

computer skills

Microsoft Excel is most commonly used to manage finances or to gain information from data quickly. Computer users employ the popular program to create spreadsheets and checklists. In order to ease the process of forming these documents, Excel permits the use of formulas and standard functions to enable automatic calculations. Excel also allows users to convert data into various charts, which are visually appealing and can be copied into presentation programs.

Microsoft PowerPoint

computer skills

Microsoft PowerPoint is a fantastic presentation application, which allows employees to prepare material for management or colleagues in a dynamic manner. The application has many built-in backgrounds and themes that allow users to create unique and impressive presentations quickly. Presentations can include pictures, sounds and other multi-media, as imported by the user. PowerPoint is commonly used by the sales and marketing departments in order to pitch new products to clients or illustrate sales forecasts to management.

Microsoft Outlook

computer skills

Outlook is a great tool to use when sending, receiving and storing emails, but it can also be utilised as an information management system. Outlook enables users to compose daily, weekly and monthly calendars that they may choose to share with other users. The calendar tool also allows employees to send invitations for events to other employees and keep a journal of to-do tasks. It also features task remainders and the ability to store contacts. Outlook is great for anyone in the company, from business executives to admin staff, as it allows the organisation to share important dates and events, thereby increasing productivity.
Match your skills to the job-requirements

But remember that many skills are job specific, meaning that when you are applying for positions, you should always mention the skills that are most aligned to that exact job position in order to have the best opportunity to get employed.

Nigeria’s Richest Woman – Do not let a university degree define you

Folorunsho Alakija, Nigeria’s Richest Woman  – ‘Do not let a university degree define you’

On the 3rd November 2016, Nigeria’s richest woman and billionaire, Folorunsho Alakija, spoke at the annual Excellence in Leadership program at the Daystar Christian Centre in Lagos. Alakija stated that not accomplishing a college degree did not refrain her from achieving her dreams.

The Cable reported –

Alakija said, ‘Had I had the opportunity to go to University, I may have come out with a second class upper or lower but that wasn’t my destiny’.

‘I definitely would have loved to attain a university degree as we all know how prestigious and beneficial they are, however, for those of us who didn’t have that opportunity, I would argue it isn’t the end of the world.’

The oil tycoon argued that her success did not come overnight; it has been a combination of hard work, sweat, tear, stubbornness and stress.

I have also heard some nasty rumours about how I have earned my way to the top. I remember once reading the headline ‘Hairdresser given an oil block’, in the national dailies. I had never been a hairdresser, but apparently my determination and current position troubled them enough to create false stories.’

Her speech aimed to inspire the audience and ensure that they too have belief in themselves. Alakija understood that allowing the partakers to hear from someone who has earned accomplishments without a tertiary education would help them pursuit their own aspirations and dreams. She noted she had always believed in her abilities, even when moving from fashion designing to unfamiliar industries, and encourages others to do the same.
