Who Chooses Business Technology?

Want ads or job descriptions often request that applicants have skills in using current software such as Microsoft Windows, Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint or Publisher. The ad may also call for desktop publishing skills and the use of Adobe InDesign.

Personal Interest

A few reasons people sign up for just one or two classes are to learn how computers work, to improve keyboarding skills, to set up a home finance system, to produce newsletters or even to improve business writing skills.
