Why Computer Skills Are Important

By Dru Macasieb

Computer skills are essential in today’s work environment. According to the Vice President of Channel Sales at Quickstat, Shamsah Malik (2018), having technical skills such as the ability to use popular office applications and be able to navigate the internet is what recruiters look for in an ambitious candidate.  This is why having certifications for MS Office is crucial for career success. It confirms to hiring managers that a candidate knows how to use a specific application or do a specific task versus experience alone, which is not as easy to confirm without demonstration.
