Nowadays, our work becomes more dependent to the digital world. We all need digital skills to be competent for job, no matter which industry you are working in. Digital literacy is so important that pupils in the UK have to learning coding starting from the age of 5 until 16.

Managing Director of Hays in Asia, Christine Wright, said that ‘The digital revolution has touched the lives of virtually every consumer and business around the globe’. Definitely only very few companies still only cling to use office tool to perform tasks. Sales forecasts do not rely on sales reps’ intuition anymore but big data to make more precise analysis. Retails hardly survive if they do not appreciate the importance of digital marketing.

Digital literacy is no longer a ‘teens’ thing’. It does not matter whether you are the head of company or a small potato with no own room, you have to know something about the digital world. You may want to keep up with the business, to go ahead of the industry, or just to be considered by future employers, do it for your own good to equip yourself with IT skills. Given that technological advancement floods in everyday, it is obvious that only the one who is open to change will survive.
