Which job skills are outdated now for students

Typing Skills: While typing speed was once a critical skill, modern technology with voice-to-text capabilities and advanced user interfaces has lessened its importance.

Basic Data Entry: Automated systems and software have replaced many basic data entry tasks, reducing the demand for these skills.

 Traditional Filing Systems: The shift to digital storage and cloud computing has made knowledge of physical filing systems largely obsolete.

 Simple Arithmetic: Basic arithmetic skills are now often handled by software and calculators, diminishing the need for proficiency in this area for most non-specialized jobs.

Handwritten Communication: The prevalence of digital communication means that handwriting skills are less critical in the professional environment.

Manual Scheduling: With the advent of sophisticated scheduling software and AI-driven calendar tools, manual scheduling skills are becoming less relevant.

Single-Platform Proficiency: Being skilled only in one specific software platform (like just Microsoft Office) is no longer sufficient, as adaptability to various tools and technologies is more valued.

Mechanical Typing (Typewriters): Familiarity with typewriters and other obsolete office equipment is no longer relevant, as they have been replaced by modern computing devices
