Do You Have the Right Tech Skills?


Our workplace is overwhelmingly becoming more and more technology oriented. From laptops and mobile devices to smart watches, we are relying on technology more than ever. Recently, The Globe and Mail put together an article called Fifteen basic tech skills all entrepreneurs should have – in which they outline answers from some of the top entrepreneurs as to what skills they think all small business owners, freelancers or entrepreneurs need to have.

Learning New Tech Skills

While the list is relevant for entrepreneurs; it also carries over to all workers of all ages. These skills can help you stay on top of the job market and the increasing requirements that new jobs demand. Here is part of the list from that article:

  • Managing an inbox
  • Basics of analytics
  • Basic HTML coding
  • Communicating via social media
  • Customer acquisition
  • Handling your own computer
  • Map out e-marketing

The original article outlines more skills and details about each skill (see link above to original article). This is what leading entrepreneurs find as useful skills – how do you fare in your skill development compared to these tech capabilities? Keeping on top of new technology and developing relevant skills will be fundamental in staying prepared for a long, successful career.
