Digital Citizenship is defined on Wikipedia as "someone who utilizes information technology to engage in society, politics, and government" (Wikipedia, 2018).  It also goes on to say that a "Digital Citizen is one who uses the internet regularly and effectively" (Wikipedia, 2018).  

In our day and age it is important for people to be "digital citizens."  No matter your occupation, working on technology is needed in some way.  It may be that an applicant for a job is having to apply online, email may be essential, or one may be required to do daily work using technology.
