Getting Certified in Microsoft Office is as Easy as 1,2,3...

Office is the most commonly used software by non-tech and tech jobs alike. The Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification is the industry recognized standard for this software—it is the best way to validate your skills to an employer.  A recent analysis of more than 14.6 million job postings between April and September 2013 from 25,000 job boards and staffing companies’ corporate websites revealed Microsoft Office as #3 on the list of most required skills, and the only software package called out within the top 20 skills across all occupations.
