[closed] Do office managers use DBMS such as Microsoft Access to keep up with records?

Hello,

My name is Aimee and I am a business senior major at Concordia University. I have already obtained my associate's degree in administration, and I will be obtaining my bachelor's degree soon. I hope that my general academic knowledge with using management information systems will come in handy, because I aspire to become an office manager. My concentration of study is with management. I feel that my knowledge is slightly limited to just academic knowledge, so I would like to learn more to prepare me for a job in management.

Your input would be appreciated. Thank you. #computer-software #business-administration #office-management #business-ethics

Hi Aimee - MIS is inherent in almost everything we do. Sounds like you are looking for a way to put into practice all that you've learned while in school. Consider volunteering for an organization. Most, if not all, non-profits utilize a DBMS to maintain lists of their volunteers, their donors, their functions, etc. While they might not be using Access, they likely have excel or Google sheets. You can then merge academia with real-world use and benefit not only yourself, but an entity who likely needs your expertise!


In industry, my guess is that you will find fewer instances of Access, but many more of SharePoint where you can build your dbase directly in SharePoint, or you can publish your Access content to Sharepoint. Having that skill would definitely be a + on your resume!


Good luck.
