Unlocking Career Opportunities With Microsoft 365

Today’s workplace is undeniably digital-first. Technology drives everything we do, from basic tasks to highly advanced automations.

Thankfully, most Australian workers are confident in creating documents, sending emails, and making basic spreadsheets.

However, in a tech-first world, higher-order skills are endlessly valuable.

According to the World Economic Forum, technological literacy is one of the top three “skills on the rise” this decade. It even outranks AI and big data.

The ability to use technology for problem solving, collaboration, productivity, and data organisation can make you highly sought after in the job market.

And you might not realise that your workplace’s Microsoft 365 for Business subscription already includes the tools you need for all these tasks.

SharePoint, Teams, OneDrive and Office Online are powerful tools. They take some getting used to, but once you are confident, you will find so much potential to explore.

Thanks to Microsoft’s enduring popularity, these tools will also likely be relevant for a long time.

If you aim to advance your career with adaptable, future-ready technology skills, our Microsoft 365 course will help you achieve that goal.

As well as earning the skills needed for “Fundamentals” Microsoft 365, you’ll gain confidence, get hands-on experience, and learn practical tips to unlock the full potential of Microsoft 365 for Business.


First off, what is Microsoft 365?

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) is a suite of productivity applications that are fundamental to modern business operations.

The suite includes tools such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. You are likely familiar with these already.

Microsoft 365 also includes cloud-based programs and apps designed for productivity and collaboration in modern workplaces.

  • OneDrive is a cloud storage solution that allows users to store, share, and collaborate on documents securely from anywhere.
  • SharePoint is a highly customisable collaboration tool designed to help teams organise, share, and manage content, knowledge and applications through intranet sites and portals.
  • Microsoft Sway takes presentations to the next level with dynamic, interactive features. 
  • Office Online includes browser-based versions of Microsoft’s traditional Office suite applications, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.
  • Microsoft Teams is a unified communication and collaboration platform that combines workplace chat, video meetings, file storage, and application integration.
