How Microsoft Training Can Give You An Edge In The Job Market

Author : Jamie Simpson

With the economy struggling to recover and unemployment at all-time highs, having an edge in the job market is more critical than ever. One easy way to gain such an edge is to get training in Microsoft programs.

There are few jobs in the modern world that don't involve at least some use of computers. Though there has been some diversification in recent years, the vast majority of them utilize Microsoft operating systems and software. Despite this, many people are largely ignorant on how to use them properly and to their full potential.

An extensive and comprehensive knowledge of Microsoft programming is very appealing to employers. They want people that already know how to use a computer well, so they don't have to do extra training. This is especially rare in older demographics which have struggled to keep up with changing technology. Young people looking for jobs should emphasize their knowledge and flexibility with technology.

They also want people who can deal with simple problems and issues, and know how to manually and electronically troubleshoot issues. These people are not only desirable because of their own self-sufficiency; they can also use their skills to assist coworkers who have issue.

The most common and important Microsoft programs prospective employees need to learn are Windows, Internet Explorer, and the Microsoft Office suite. With a good understanding of these programs, an employee can use the Internet and e-mail, and create and modify most work-related documents.

Those with little understanding of Microsoft programs can take Microsoft training courses. These are available from commercial training companies all over the place, and Microsoft itself also offers courses. There is also software designed specifically to teach new users how to use a personal computer. Some companies also have in-house training programs that are great to take advantage of. Those that prefer books can find many manuals and how-to guides at book stores and online. Of course, the best way to become comfortable the the software is to use and experience it firsthand.

A Microsoft training course can be many things, but at its most basic level it's exactly what it sounds like. Basic courses usually teach how to use Windows, including how to start the computer, use programs and open files. Intermediate courses usually teach the basics of how to use the more common programs mentioned above. Advances courses will show advanced applications of these programs and others that are less prominent.

Whether you're applying for a desk job in an office or a blue-collar factory job, it's almost certain you'll be working with computers in one way or another. Knowing how to use Microsoft programs will ensure that you're capable to doing your job and make you look competent and competitive in the job market.
