Work and Employment
The information that many of today’s organizations need to process is growing at a dizzying pace. Word processors help to insure that this work is handled smoothly and efficiently. Computers are utilized to record, edit, store, and revise letters, memos, reports, statistical tables, forms, and other printed materials. Job prospects will be best for those word processors with strong technical skills that are willing to be flexible and willing to continuously develop their skills. In particular, the more expertise one has in computer equipment and software packages, the better their job opportunities will be.
