The importance of MS Office Skills and Getting a Job
Join Alan Shapiro for a discussion on the importance of having MS Office skills and employability.
Alan Shapiro MS, St. Petersburg College and Pearson
Colleges today require students to take a computer literacy course that usually has Microsoft® Office as part of the course. Students taking this course do not always see the relevance. What students don’t realize is the importance of MS Office skills and employability. There is a strong correlation between the two. According to Keys to the Future: Align Workforce Readiness Skills to Ensure Student Success white paper, MS Office ranks fourth in the most required skills across all occupations. In this presentation, information about the importance of having MS Office skills and employability will be discussed and how Pearson has addressed this by issuing student badges that are tied to the Credly (Acclaim) website.
