Why are Computer Skills so Important?
Your ability to use a variety of computer programmes is an important skill to put on your CV. Not only does computer literacy help in applying for jobs, but it may also increase your salary as you are able to take on more responsibilities.
The ability to use more common programs such as Microsoft Word or Excel or specialized programs, such as the bookkeeping program Intuit QuickBooks, can mean that you have advanced computer skills that other candidates do not, and you may get hired into the company because you are able to use those programs at an intermediate or advanced level. You could make more money or get hired for a high-level job because you are able to use a program. Basic computer literacy allows you to take classes in school or college or get training the workplace on how to use certain basic or specialized software.
