So you found the dream job. Only one problem -- it requires proficiency in Microsoft Excel. What to do?
This course is a gameplan for learning Excel -- and acing your job interview along the way.
You will learn:
Your interview prep power hour
When you've got an interview schedule, you can't spend hours trying to learn a subject. That's why this course will take under an hour.
The course is delivered through high-quality screencast video training. I also include the slide decks for you to follow along.
Tips and tricks not included
I have intentionally left out direct Excel training from this course. To get in-depth Excel video training for the topics covered, see the parent course, "Hired with Excel: What Every Analyst Needs to Know."
Instead, this series will get you focused on what counts at a job interview -- addressing the employers' needs, and proving you can satisfy them.
After downloading Excel for free (score!) and learning about some great Excel resources, you will be able to distill what you really need from Excel -- employment -- and build a learning plan around this.
Quality beats quantity. In this video, you will learn how the Pareto rule applies to Excel -- and what that means for your interview preparation.
