Computer Skills That Will Be Best For You
1- Basic Computer Skills
First things first, Basic computer usage is the most important skill to learn. It is vitally important to nearly any middle-class white collar job. You need to learn how to open and manipulate programs. Troubleshoot basic computer problems (e.g. Internet not working, printer not hooked up, etc.).
2- Learning How To Use The Internet
Learning how to use the internet to research and find answers efficiently. You can fix a lot of shit on your own or do stuff you’ve never thought you had the skill to do. You just need to find the right information and read up on the skills.
3- Graphic Designing
No, I’m not telling you to become a full fledged designer. I am asking you to learn the basics of some graphic designing software like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and e.t.c. These skills can become handy for anyone who uses social media.
4- How To Use Microsoft office
Year 2016 is just about to end and people still don’t know how to use MS Office. The reason I am focusing very much on MS Office is because it is used almost every where. If you are a student, you will need to use it at least once in your lifetime (generally it is much more than that).
From a professional point of view, Know the ins and outs of Excel (Or another spreadsheet program). You’d be surprised how much easier it can make your organizational life, not to mention that a fair amount of people leave college not knowing how to put an equation into a spreadsheet.
