What are the most important computer programs for a job?

I have used excel and word over and over again in my college career. However, I do not think I am "proficient" as almost all job ads say is required. So, as I brush up on those, are there any other programs I should learn besides those that are crucial in the job field? Those two are the most common that I see in ads. Also, does anyone know of any good programs to become proficient in excel and word or should I just get a big old generic book from the library and read it cover to cover? Thanks for the help! =)

Excellence in Excel and Word is useful for sure. Another easy software to pick up is Powerpoint. MS Access may be difficult to learn, but it helps you to find the right tool for the job. Too many people do everything with only Excel or Word as it is the only software they know.

Google is your best friend too. You need to learn to find information online fast.

Extend your talent. You may like to acquaint yourself with blogging software like WordPress become a talented writer. Knowing some graphic software like photoshop are useful also.
