Training Today for a Better Tomorrow

If you turn back the clock four or five decades, you see an employment pattern that is almost unrecognisable now. Men and (to some degree, but not like today) women would emerge from school and enter work for a company. Three or four decades later, they would retire to find a generous pension waiting for them, if they were fortunate to work for a strong enough business.
Today, the pattern is much different. You still see men and women entering the career field, but the four-decade career with one company is almost unheard of in modern times. While this means less security for workers, it also means that there are more chances out there for you to increase your level of income, instead of being stuck in the same pay grade for years at a time.

Knowledge is everything
If you want to take advantage of these opportunities, though, you have to be willing to take part in training classes to expand your expertise. If you are interested in pursuing technological opportunities - and most of the fastest-growing fields involve innovative uses of technology - then the Microsoft training courses online are just one way for you to start enhancing your own suite of skills.
Choose your market wisely
Are you interested in game development? This is a field that is experiencing incredible growth, and in which you can find a significant amount of money simply by designing an app that people enjoy playing with. Consider the case of "Flappy Bird" creator Dong Nguyen. While his newest game, "Swing Copters," was the talk of the gaming world a few months ago, it was "Flappy Bird" that brought him instant wealth. At the height of its popularity, the game was making him $50,000 a day, and people downloaded the app over 50 million times. Obviously there are a lot more apps and games that are not nearly that successful, but if you visit Microsoft's Game Development courses, you can learn how to turn your idea into a game that people just might fall in love with.

The possibilities are endless
Of course, there's a lot more out there than just games. Are you interested in helping people put together cloud storage solutions? You can learn about cloud development, hybrid cloud creation and even private cloud support so that people can take their files everywhere without having to carry a jump drive around their necks (those floppy disks, of course, having become just as archaic as the cassette tape). 

If you are interested in a promotion within your company but they require proficiency in other elements of the Microsoft Office suite, you can take training classes in every program. Access, Exchange, Lync, Excel and PowerPoint are some of the most popular offerings, as the recently added levels of sophistication permit the creation of robust, media-rich presentations and the establishment of databases that make those 1990's ‘mail merges’ look Palaeolithic in comparison.
Want to learn a programming language? HTML5 and C#/XAML are just two choices that are available from the Microsoft family. Want to learn how to put together a server? You can take a server infrastructure course. Interested in protecting sensitive information? There are courses in management and security that you can take too.

The bottom line is that the only ceiling over you in terms of what you can accomplish is the one that you put there. The more work you put into your future, the more you will attain.
