You need to be extremely comfortable with downloading and uploading files, saving and finding files on your computer, transferring files, renaming files, and using a website interface. You should have a good working knowledge of the major document file formats and their associated software programs. You should also be Internet savvy enough to know where to look for information about a particular file format or subject.
