Why should you use SharePoint?

SharePoint solves four main problems:

• As companies grow so does the amount of their files. It soon becomes difficult to keep track of the multiplying documents and their locations. SharePoint overcomes this by allowing you to store and locate your files in a central site. Files can also be located through company wide searches of your SharePoint enterprise portal.

• Sharing work files through email is a cumbersome process. SharePoint eliminates this by allowing files to be stored in one location, allowing easy access to all team members.

• Today’s work occurs over multiple locations, whether it is in different countries, office locations, separate departments or at your home office. SharePoint enables teams and individuals to connect and collaborate together regardless of where they are located.

• It’s difficult and time consuming to create and maintain sites. SharePoint allows anyone to create sites for use within their company’s Intranet, as they are needed, whether they are departmental sites, document libraries, meetings sites, survey sites, or discussion boards

The more I read about Sharepoint, the more interested i become. I feel these could be a breaking point for me, i'm stuck in a company where i'm doing what i didn't do at school and for me its time waisted. Some would think i let myself but not a t all, maybe i'm one of the unfortunate people who are "job unlucky", no matter how much i try and feel i had a good interview, i'm never called for a job and i'm hardly called for a job interview. so i feel if i start with sharepoint it could change the way things are.
