Employability Microsoft Learn
Read Time, 4 min.

Imagine that you work in a chain of clothing stores, another global pandemic arrives, and your company has to close. Imagine now that they tell you that you can only keep your job if you have digital skills to handle online orders or manage customer data in the cloud or plan the company’s cybersecurity… could you stay?

During Covid-19 for many the answer was no. Thousands of companies and millions of workers were not prepared for the digital world. The pandemic has taught us a global lesson: to be or not to be… digital is no longer an option. Tech skills have become a mainstay for employability and there is endless proof of that…

Let’s look at some facts

  • The data and analytics sector recorded a growth of 68% in 2020
  • Moving from face-to-face to virtual methods, which generated a 58% increase in customer service positions
  • 30 million people around the world, acquired technological skills from Microsoft

“Thanks to data analysis, Big data, Microsoft Teams and PowerBI courses, I learned to manage data with the precision that sensitive information requires in organizations” Laura Martínez, a Computer Science graduate from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
