The Typewriter

Typewriters are an item that belongs in the realm of collectors today, but once upon a time they were an important part of every college students life. In fact it was so important that my parents gave me a typewriter for Christmas one year. Yeah they were preparing me for what I needed when I made my first big trip into the world. I had my typewriter for college.

But the best career advice I ever received revolved around the typewriter. Mom told me take typing class. If you can type you can always get a job. She was right. I don't know how many jobs I have gotten because I knew how to type. Or is it called keying nowadays.

  1. I took several typing/keyboarding classes when I was in high school and business school. It paid off. I can type 80 wpm. The job I work at now requires that candidates pass a typing test before going on to the next phase of interviews.
