Fairfax, VA, United States
Student at George Mason University
I took Word and PowerPoint 2010 during my senior year of high school and these two certifications helped me get my first part-time job at my university teaching Microsoft Office Suite applications to students, faculty, and staff. Later on, I took more certifications and these skills helped me get get a full-time job offer from my university right before graduation as well as tuition waivers for grad school.
Yes I would recommend MOS certification because the certifications show your future employers that you are serious about what you do and also, telling a person you know how to use a program is one thing, but telling them that you are certified is totally different and more assuring.
