In many job roles you will be expected to use a PC or a laptop to complete tasks. Certain tasks may require the use on in house software or there may be strict guidelines that need to be adhered too in terms of software. For other tasks you may be able to choose what software you use to assist you as long as the end result is the same. Even down to managing your time or keeping notes, there is a wide range of software that you can use.

When deciding on what software to use within your job, you firstly need to ensure that it is secure and that you have the right to use it for business purposes. Selecting the correct software may be tricky and often it is a bit of a game of trial and error to find the correct one. Don’t be afraid to ask other colleagues what they use or to ask for free trials of software before you ask if it can be bought.
