WHY DOES TYPING SPEED MATTER?

Let’s face it – we live in a world that highly values efficiency.

 

We are constantly on the hunt for everything from the fastest line at the grocery store to the fastest internet provider.

We’re willing to pay extra for two-day shipping or the option to skip the line when boarding a plane.

There is perhaps nowhere that efficiency matters more than in the workplace.

Employers want workers who can produce high-quality work and do it quickly.

So, when we think about how we are preparing today’s students to be successful in college and beyond, speed matters.

And typing is no exception to this rule!

When it comes to typing, most professions seek employees who can type at least 45 words per minute.

Regardless of what profession you choose, mastering touch typing, and increasing your WPM will make you a more desirable candidate for a job, and will help you increase your efficiency in the workplace.
