What technology should I be learning in high school to prepare for college and the 'real world'?
I had an internship where I saw a lot of the employees using different kind of technology programs (Google docs was one of them). Are there specific tools or programs you recommend I learn that would apply to most jobs? I want to learn now so that I can use them in and after college! #college #technology #professional-development
With the way technology continues to change and the various threats to your personal information I would begin to learn and take courses in Cyber Security. Many high schools and colleges are putting programs in place focused on Cyber Security.
You asked a very interesting questions, and I am presenting a few articles to help to explain an adequate answer.
Send thank you notes to those who help you. Please keep me posted. I would like to follow your progress. Best of luck!!
A basic understanding of microsoft excel will never steer you wrong. Use excel for things you may do every day-- making a shopping list, tracking a budget or your savings, figuring out how much you need to save per month to buy something you want-- all of these things can be done in excel. The more comfortable you get with the program, the easier it will be to understand advanced skills when you're in college/at work. Hope this helps!
Others have answered about improving technical skills which is very important. Along with these please also work on personal development. Technology is something you can also learn at 30 but personal skills, work attitude are something which when cultivated at intial stages will only get better with time and are needed in any field that you might choose to enter. Most IT company employees are asked to attend self-development courses to master basic skills like accountability, proactiveness. Basic human attitude which you if you work consistently can work wonders once you enter the professional world.
