Keyboarding Skills

TWO REASONS KEYBOARDING SKILLS ARE IMPORTANT

#1 Being more productive with your time.  Hunt-and-peck typing not only waste time, but you lose your train of thought.  Looking at the keyboard and then the screen doesn't allow you to focus your thoughts.

 

#2 It is a relevant and desirable skill.  Many employers are looking for people who can accurately type and are proficient using office applications (word processing, spreadsheets, presentations).  High-level skills like education and software coding also require typing skills.
