Career Tip: Digital Technology

Digital Technology

The workplace has been forever changed by the advancements in technology.  Employers want to hire individuals who are equipped to use digital technology efficiently and ethically to solve problems, accomplish goals and complete tasks.

What is Digital Technology?  According to NACE, the National Association of Colleges and Employers, an organization recognized as one of the leading resources for Career Readiness standards; the Digital Technology competency is the ability of an individual to effectively demonstrate adaptability to new and emerging technologies.

What does that look like in the workplace?  An employee selecting and using a new technology which provides them with the opportunity to develop technological skills and create products, processes or designs.

How can you hone digital technology skills?  Take part in experiential learning.  Do an internship, co-op or volunteer.  NACE reports nearly 50% of the student respondents who completed participated in experiential learning stated their “competencies were “very” to “extremely” improved by their internship/co-op experience.”  Digital technology includes knowledge or expertise in social media platforms, various software, electronic presentation skills, web navigation and video conferencing just to name a few.

Employers want individuals who possess digital technology skills or can easily learn any new technologies with little difficulty.  Take advantage of any opportunity which will enhance your digital technology skills.  Next week we will explore another Career Readiness Competency.  We want Wayne State University students to be Career Ready!
