Microsoft Office skills are essential in any modern office job and if you’re looking for a new role, it could be a requirement in the job description. While Microsoft Office skills are easy enough to learn on the go, here are 3 reasons why you should think about taking a Microsoft Office course.
It’s a good refresher
Enrolling in a Microsoft Office course can be very worthwhile if you think your IT skills could use a refresher. Even if you don’t expect to use all of them every day, there’s a good chance you’ll be expected to use at least one of the major programs at some point.
You might need to use Word to write up a report or take minutes. Your Excel skills would come in handy if you needed to do some number crunching. And you never know when you might be asked to run a company presentation, making PowerPoint skills essential.
Could the refresher be worth it for you?
You’ll learn something new
If you’re comfortable with your IT skills, or even a power user, chances are you’ll still learn something new by enrolling in an Office course.
There are few people who know about every single function the programs can offer. For example, can you really say you know about all the time-saving features jam-packed into Excel and Word? Even if you do, Microsoft will always be working on and adding new features and settings. You never know what handy feature you’ll learn about on a course, and this alone could make the investment worthwhile.
The course will add skills to your CV
An industry-recognised qualification that certifies your level of technical competence can add great value to your CV. Backing up what you say with relevant experience and qualifications is essential in any CV or cover letter, and official accreditation is a great way to prove yourself. Instead of saying ‘Proficient in Microsoft Excel’, you can say you hold the ‘Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification in Microsoft Excel’.
