Microsoft Office Certification Exam (Under $100) – get certified for Microsoft Office Specialist

Getting prepared to take a Microsoft Office exam is one of the best things you can do in any profession. It is used by administration, management, IT, and just about every department within a company. Not having strong Microsoft skills may prevent you from getting management positions. Trying to train yourself on-the-job, as you will have to do, is much more challenging than preparing a head of time for a position. Every IT job that I’ve had, for example, I have used Microsoft office and other software the entire day every day. You also get approached with support questions related to these products, which are often out of the support scope, but it would be beneficial if a top-tier manager asks you for some Excel or Outlook assistance and you are available to provide knowledgeable help to someone that makes important decisions within a company. There are five parts to the Office 2016 exam. Other exam versions would be beneficial, but used so minimal that extra cert time would be better spent on a newer version of a different software program, or even a different scope like hardware or project management.  The five parts are Word, Excel, Power Point, Access and Outlook. At minimum 3 of these will be extremely important in most career choices, possibly all 5. Word is your typical document writing. Excel is a spreadsheet workbook format that allows cells within rows and columns organize your data and has built in formulas that will calculate what you want in the cells for you. PowerPoint includes premade slideshows so you merely have to input text and pictures...
Answering 5 difficult Interview Questions

Answering 5 difficult Interview Questions

IT Skills   Preparing for an interview is a good way to reexamine yourself. Questions you will be asked are used to examine your personality, and how you may handle situations on the job. When job interviews ask difficult questions, they are getting to the core of who you are as a person. The following descriptions will help prepare you for these questions. Keep in mind, these questions are common these days among all job interviews. Before you get started, you will want to write down common questions and write down your answers. Some interviews even let you bring your answers in with you, for the ones that do not, you will want to write them and rehearse them. Practicing ahead of time will help you sound better. You won’t sound like you’re reaching for an answer or making one up. Sometimes when I am very prepared for an interview and have all these answers on point, I will act like I’m thinking on a couple, so they can get an image of me thinking and problem solving. You don’t want to get stumped and started giving the vibes that they are looking for to weed out candidates that will not be a good fit. Just be honest and have fun, they aren’t looking for the coolest thing you did to solve a problem, they want to see how you think and figure things out. A common question asked that many do not like to answer, including myself, is what is your greatest weakness. I mean, come on, you’re trying to showcase how great you can be, and you’re...

7 Steps for a Good Presentation

You will need to work on your public speaking skills for talking in front of groups large and small. I put together 7 steps and explanations that will help you do better. Remember, always focus on your first and last steps and the most important message if you have not mastered public speaking and presentations. Decide what you are going to make the audience change after your presentations. Are you changing how they feel/think? Are you trying to persuade them? Or do you feel you want them to get to know you and what you offer?  Sometimes a presentation is to educate people, so make sure that in addition to getting them to like you, you are able to educate them on your message Keep each section very simple. If you have lots of words/bullets in your slides, or get too wordy over explaining yourself. If you add too much, they will get bored and lose interest. Keep points simple and use your voice, you will be talking a lot and will find a rhythm. Before you presentation, engage the venue members. Talk to who will be doing sounds and lighting. Make friends with them and get them on your side to help you. Practice where you will stand and how they can help you so you can both do a great job. Stand in one spot, do not pace and weave. You can use your turning and hands to make plenty of motion. People will lose the presentation and become confused if you pace around. Tell a good story and/or have a good ice breaker. Have a couple...

How to create LinkedIn profile for IT Computer Support Job

LinkedIn can be very exciting and fun to fill out, so make sure you take an effort to attempt it. Some people recommend placing your profile picture first, but if you do not have a good one, I would consider filling out some of the basic information first. It’s a great way to get to know yourself and others. You can network with friends and experts, find great ways to land that career you are looking for, or even get great material to expand on your IT knowledge. Remember to have fun with it, be professional, and remember that you can always come back to it and edit things. If you are unsure what to write, consider skipping a section and work on the ones that you are confident filling out. For starter, making a headline is simple as it may only include a few words. I used to try to make this sound fancy, but I’ve learned that mastering the basics is key in IT. This also shows honesty which is important. Writing something like computer expert, or network engineer when you don’t have years of experience or are new to the field will not help much with landing the job you need or are qualified to get started. I currently use my exact job title at my job, since the company is well-known, I also use the company name in my headline. Another one I like is “Computer Support Specialist,” which is the most common term I have heard used in school. This will get you with the pack of candidates that are marketing themselves to recruiters...
