Before computers became a common household item it used to be a very exclusive equipment. If you asked the average person on the street he/she was not able to explain exactly what is a computer from the layman’s terms. Only they would know that it was a computing machine. Computers had come a long way since then and now almost each and every electronic gadget has a small computer to carry out the what that gadget is supposed to do.
A computer was almost the size of a big room back in the day. Mainly it was used for banking purposes to calculate complex mathematical algorithms and experts who could operate were not common. It was quite a brainy bunch of crowd who handled those bulky big equipment.

It clearly created an issue in the job market. Some were not familiar with computers and they could not find a job without being familiar with computers.
