How to Train Users after New System was Implemented at Work

From top to bottom, a user guide should be educational, motivational and organized. It must answer common questions efficiently to save employees time and confusion. Most of all, a user guide should be built upon itself to become an educational tool that’s accessible and practical. I will share a few tips on creating a quality self-service training guide for end users. While I was at MATC I have had to write self-service training guides for a few classes. I have learned a lot as I have gotten better and more confident at creating these step by step guides. The most important tip is to thoroughly research the topic matter of whatever your making the self-service guide about. Because, before you can begin the writing process you must have a complete understanding of the subject you choose. I always want to know how to make something work but also why and how it works. Keep in mind you are writing this from a position of knowledge and should be able to speak at length about any aspect of the process. Having a better understanding of how and why things work the way they do will make you be able to write more confidently write the instructions in your training guide. My next tip is before writing the guide you should, and successfully do whatever you are writing about. Example: How to guide to encrypt your phone or a How to guide to secure store client information on the new server. This is important for several reasons one being that it will help you work out any small kinks or bugs...

Negotiating Your Salary and Benefits

  Most of the times when you are offered a job, you will be asked or offered what you will receive as pay and what health and other benefits you will get. It is important that you look into what other people who are working the same or similar job as you are being offered are getting. This can help you to know if what they are offering you is fair and whether you can negotiate with them for more or not. There are certain things you can do to help you be prepared for this. In this article I will go over some things that can help you with negotiations and why they are important. The first thing that you should do is research what others in the computer support field are making. With the technology that we have nowadays, there are countless ways that you can research what kind of wages others in the computer support field are getting. An example of this is through the internet. One website I found that is detailed is glassdoor.com. On this website it shows you the average, a scale from low to high and what other people working in related fields are making. Another website like glassdoor.com is indeed.com. On indeed.com you can look at what support specialists in your area are earning as well as surrounding areas. One downside to some of these sites are that they require you to make an account before you can look at more details. An interesting fact is that MATC also keeps track of some of this information too. One thing that is...

  There are many reasons why you should have a LinkedIn profile. Here are a few reasons that having a properly filled out LinkedIn profile can benefit you. LinkedIn can make finding a job easier since a high percentage of employers are using it to look for good candidates. Using LinkedIn and actively being on it can also help you expand your network. The bigger your network is, the better chance you will have of being found when people search for things that are related to you on LinkedIn. Another thing it can help with is with your research of a company that you might be interested in applying and working. When you are creating your LinkedIn profile, you want to make sure that you take your time and have all the information that you need to properly fill it out. Having a LinkedIn profile and having one that is properly filled out are two different things. If your profile is not properly filled out, it could turn away employers that may be interested in you. Don’t rush it and make sure you fill out as much of it as possible. One good feature of LinkedIn is that it keeps track of your profile and will let you know how filled out your profile is. A very important part of filling out your profile that can get overlooked is making sure that you have a good profile picture. You should also make sure that it is a clear, professional picture and should only have you in it. You wouldn’t want to use a picture that has you and your...

7 Essential tips for writing resume

I will be giving you some tips on things you should do and avoid doing when writing your resume. Resumes can be a challenging thing to do but with some helpful advice you too will be able to write your very own resume. The first tip in writing a good resume is to choose a good font which is clear and easy to read. Fonts like Times new Roman or Tahoma are good choices. This will help your employer read your resume much more easily. Also, try to avoid using more than one font style as it can make your resume look a bit less professional to the eyes of the hiring manager. Another tip would be to avoid adding any graphics of any kind into your resume. This will make your resume look unprofessional. This can cost you the opportunity of getting a potential interview with the company you applied for so its best to just leave the graphic images out of your resume. When applying to different job positions and companies, you want to change your objective, so it can relate to that specific job position. You want to include all the related skills that the job position desires of you. So, do not just submit your already made resume to every job posting you apply for. Read the description and the responsibilities that are required and adjust your resume accordingly. As you are adjusting your resume, make sure that the rest of your resume supports your objective as well. Leave out information that does not have to be in your resume. Things like your birthdate, your...
