No matter where you work, chances are, you have come across Microsoft software or desktops at least once in your life. If you’re like most people, you come across Microsoft products everyday since they are the industry standard for most PC systems on the market.
What all this means is that you need to familiarize yourself with the Microsoft interface if you plan to advance professionally. The MOUS (Microsoft Office Specialist) certification is designed to help you do just that.
What is MOUS Certification?
Completion of MOUS Certification means that you have attained a certain level of proficiency with the one or several of the Microsoft software applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook Access, FrontPage, or Project). Armed with this knowledge, there are few business functions that you can’t perform using some program from the Microsoft Office Suite. The total software package is supposed to be the ultimate in business applications and functionality.
What sort of job will it prepare you for?
As mentioned above, knowledge of the Microsoft Office Suite makes you an extremely versatile and capable employee. You are qualified to run financial analysis, graph trends, draft correspondence, arrange meetings, deliver multi-media presentations, and perform Web site design. Can you think of a single industry or job that canвЂ™t use at least some of the above skills? Not only will future employers give you more consideration during job interviews, but also, some might offer you a higher salary because MOUS certification demonstrates a level of commitment and professionalism.
