If you’re not a specialist such as an engineer, doctor or lawyer, the key to landing a good, well-paying job seems to be adding some basic digital skills to your resume

A recent study by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario found that ‘Computer Use’ was a required skill in 74% of all job postings on Workopolis and other Canadian job listing sources. While the exact phrase ‘computer use’ doesn’t necessarily turn up in job postings, references to using computers, common software programs, and other forms of technology combined appear in 74% of all job ads

Commonly required computer skills are also software such as SAP, which large companies use to manage information in finance and human resources, and more advanced digital capabilities including customer relationship management (CRM) software and higher-end computer networking skills.
