Host said: What are the top 3 traits or skills every word processor must have to excel?
Can you suggest any tips or insights to develop your word processor expertise?
Try knowing the entire Microsoft Office. Specifically, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, and in many cases, Visio.
You should also know other non-MS apps like Adobe Acrobat, OCR software, and 3rd party tools, such as Doc-X tools, FileSite, etc.
For the traits, the ones listed above are important. Knowing how your boss thinks, what your clients' needs are, being highly flexible are also important. One person just wants a file brought onto the system for blacklining purposes only. Another wants a complex document fully stripped and reformatted. Knowing what the deadline is and how much attention to quality vs speed that they need are among the customer service skills required.
