What Tech Skills Do Employers Look Out For?

Finding a better position that pays more, offers room for growth, and utilizes employee skills and education might be all you need.




With the new year already advancing, it’s time to dive right into the hopeful feeling of making a few significant life changes. What skills are employees hopefully on the lookout for when taking new employees?

The age-old “get healthy” and “fix my finances” promised are worthy resolutions, but many people use this time of self-reflection to explore the job market, intent on finding a better position that pays more, offers them room for growth, and utilizes their skills and education.

Computer Skills

You can’t work the cash register at a major chain retailer these days without some level of comfort around its computer-based setup

But if you’re going into a career-oriented job hunt in the coming year, you might be surprised by the results of a new study by Novel Aspect

 Their report shows that employers are still seeking the same old Microsoft Office skillset – typically Outlook, Excel, and PowerPoint–but that the highest paying jobs aren’t feeding out of Microsoft experience. 

It’s Amazon Web Services and in some part, the recently blown up iPhone Industry too that are bringing in the higher salaries.

“The most popular software applications featured in Indeed.com job listings serve a range of business needs. The top 20 list includes programs that focus on everything from accounting to document management as well as client services and design

The three most popular software skills are all part of the Microsoft Office Suite of products, which has consistently reigned supreme since the company began in 1989.

“Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint rank the highest for desirable software skills since spreadsheets, email, and presentations drive just about all business environments. Companies mention the three products collectively in 35.4% of job listings. 

By comparison, Microsoft Office competitor iLife – produced by Apple – is only represented in 9.7% of Indeed job listings. 

Microsoft Access, an industry-leading database management system, was No. 5; overall, the company secured 4 of the 10 most sought-after software spots.”

So why are employers still listing Microsoft experience if the real money is in your ability with other platforms? It could be a simple matter of failing to update their expectations. 

After all, a couple decades ago knowing how to put together a really vibrant, dynamic PowerPoint could make you the company’s go-to guy. 

Now, first graders are using PowerPoint to create their Thanksgiving recitals. Of course, as unlikely as it may seem in the current job market, there are still candidates who aren’t familiar with those old standbys, so employers may still feel the need to be specific.
