What could improving your IT skills do to your career?

We are all familiar with the use of Microsoft applications package. Almost on day to day personal life, we interact with tools like Excel, Microsoft Word and Excel.  But the key point lies in how well can you use these tools? How versatile are you with them? I have seen a lot of people struggle with tools meant to make their lives much more easier simply because they can’t troubleshoot or interact properly with the tools.

If your work involves analysing data even if it’s inventory or lists of any category having a good skill in excel will make your life much easier but if you don’t have the skill you will sweat to get basic tasks done and waste time unnecessarily.

When applying for a managerial role you get assessed for communications skills and your MS Skills but how many times have you looked at your power point presentation and wished you could actually articulate your points better. You see others use tools like smart art to highlight points better than 100s of words and you wished you could ace your presentation every single time using all the available tools. Guess what? You can.

Our master class training is poised to upskill professionals and people who need better skills with MS tools.

    I have worked in Admin for many years, the things I learnt on my course; Excel, Word, Powerpoint etc are immense. Still open to learning. God bless you



       Knowledge Pool has helped me a lot! I have improved on my digital skills including MS package and Business Analysis skills. Yetunde is a great teacher! Very patient and highly intelligent, she will always ensure you not just know it but that you can present it excellently. The mentoring I got from Yetunde has helped me to secure a big job in a major health service organisation in the U.K. I recommend this platform to anyone looking to sharpen their skills. Thank you Yetunde



     I used to struggle using Microsoft Package; Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. Ever since I joined Knowledge Pool my confidence is restored. I now have a deeper knowledge of the Microsoft package. I have been able to choose a suitable career path.



     I enjoyed the powerpoint tutorial by Yetunde was really helpful for my everyday job
