Job Opportunities

    The number of trained professionals in computer operations is not sufficient to meet the needs of business and industry.  Projections for the future indicate that demand will continue to increase at an accelerated rate. Wages range from entry level minimum wage to $8.00+ per hour and increase with experience and proficiency.

    The Computer Applications class prepares students for entry-level employment as: 

  • Data entry clerk
  • Computer operator
  • Word processing operator
  • Receptionist
  • or any job that utilizes a computer

    Also, Microsoft Office Specialist certification, which is becoming an industry standard, can be obtained after successfully completing the testing requirements.  Hopefully, employers will start using this test to either screen potential employees or for advancement purposes.  For more information on the MOS certification, go to
