Keeping up with computer skills will help you a lot in your career because technology is always changing and you should always be on top of your game. If you don’t have the basics down then it would be harder for you in whatever job you may choose. It will also help you in your resume.
I know someone who applied for a job at sears. Just to be someone who worked behind the counter. But they saw she had good computer skills and that she took keyboarding in middle school. She got a better job for it. She worked in the back with computer and she got paid more.
Basic skills for computer skills would be such as:
• database programs
• Presentation software
• familiarity with the internet
These are becoming requirements for most jobs. But there is more than just knowing basic computer skills. While computer skills are important, don't forget the other basic skills you need. Web designers must know how to type and know how to arrange text and graphics. Strong problem-solving and skills must be known for computer system managers. You must also be able to learn quickly with how often technology changes if you want to be in the industry with computers
