Technology in Careers

In an age of technology, it is crucial to keep up to date with the latest programs and software. Many careers today require a knowledge of programs such as the Microsoft office suit, POS systems, and other programs specialized for different careers. The necessity for these skills has made finding jobs more difficult for many.

Below I’ve made a shortlist of jobs and the requirements. Many of them below require skill in Microsoft Office. Although, a select few have requirements of specialized programs such as POS and catering/beverage management programs.

Online there are thousands of certifications to be earned. These are usually assessments ranging from multiple tests to short quizzes and test your knowledge of different programs. One popular site with a huge array of these certifications is Hub Spot.
