Recommended Posts

I just grauated with my BSc Psychology degree and my university is offering students and recent graduates to take part in the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Certification for free, do you think this is worth doing at all?

If it's free, and you are actually decent at MS Office, it is definitely worth it.

 

It might even give you an edge in applying for jobs that require constant use of MS Office, although that's pretty much classed as an essential in today's world.

I really wanted to make a joke about psychology and an office certification both being useless accreditation's in today's world, but not matter how I wrote it it sounded unfunny and came off as ignorant. 

 

Seriously, if it's free and you have the time then why not.  It only adds to your resume.


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

Nah it's cool, I get what you mean, you need to know how to apply these kind of things in the real world otherwise they are pretty useless, In my case my degree has helped me prepare for a career towards data entry, advanced report writing and the like so I guess having formal certifications rather than saying I used the Office software at uni can only help me further
