Campbellsville High School junior Cody Davis is featured on a website for completing a Microsoft Office industry certification.
He completed the certification in November, and, since then, he has performed work in Microsoft Excel for a local business.
Davis passed Certiport exams in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint to obtain Microsoft Office Specialist industry certification.
He is now featured on the Certiport website in a testimonial about how the certification has helped him in his future career.
His entry is printed below.
“A local business needed someone specializing in Microsoft Excel and contacted my teacher, who then chose me as the perfect student for the job because I had my MOS Excel 2016 certification.
“I went after school to do calculations for a company that had over 400 business partners nationwide. The calculations would have taken me so much longer than it did if I wasn’t able to use the formulas I learned from being MOS Excel certified. Because of my certification, the office staff that I worked for will be asking me for additional help in the future.
“My MOS certification has already helped me in the workforce at a young age.
“I think that anyone who has the option of receiving MOS certification should do so. Having these certifications will put you above any standard applicant at a job and give you a higher chance of being noticed for employment.
“That is why I think anyone who gets a MOS certification should go for it.”
