For many of us this past year meant studying, working, and operating in the digital environment to a lesser or greater extent. Perhaps, you finally had the time to explore all the options that Excel has to offer or you decided to enrol in some online courses to learn more about the content creation for your business. Whatever the case, you probably developed some new abilities that you want to enhance moving forward. It would be a shame to simply forget all these valuable skills.
So how to keep your computer skills moving?
Firstly, think about what you want to improve next and identify the specific skills that will be useful for you. This could be career-related or not, but the important thing is (as is the case with everything else) that you set yourself achievable goals. You might want to research what skills are currently sought after in your professional field and what ones are particularly helpful to have on your resume. Here are some handy lists that can help:
- Computer Skills for a CV in 2021
- Free Courses to Learn Skills for Digital Roles that are In-Demand Today
It is worth checking these out periodically to ensure that you have the most up-to-date knowledge. However, if you’re still a beginner when it comes to the digital world you might want to cover the basics of computers and the Internet, so you don’t get too overwhelmed by everything that you see on such lists. But don’t despair, there is a variety of courses that can help you at the start of journey.
Secondly, make use of the available online resources. YouTube can be an incredibly helpful and straightforward source of information when you want to brush up on certain digital skills and see how something is done in simple, step-by-step tutorial videos. For instance, here are our takes on how to unsend an email in Gmail or delete browser history in Google Chrome. Take it one step at a time and you’ll soon become more comfortable performing your share of daily virtual tasks.
Lastly, practice what you’ve learned and don’t be afraid to make mistakes along the way. While trying new things can be a little intimidating at first, there really isn’t a better way to solidify your knowledge than to put it to use. So try to incorporate what you’ve learned in your daily routine – even when it might seem silly at times. Use a Word document to create a shopping list, add all your appointments to the Google Calendar, or create a table outlining your budget for the upcoming month in Excel. With each subsequent use these programmes will become less of a mystery and more fun to explore!
