friendsoulmate Posted November 11, 2011 Share Posted November 11, 2011 About a year ago at my office, I had an intern start here, who had an experience and fancy talent for designing Excel spreadsheets quickly, by using the shortcut keys, with detail and accuracy, and at an advanced level. He was promoted quickly into a more demanding position. One of my weaknesses, is that I don't have advanced Excel skills with shortcut keys. I am at an intermediate level. If I were take an Excel test at a staffing service, I would probably get a high score for intermediate level, but they didn't test me at the advanced level. I believe I can come up to the advanced Excel skill level, if a had a practical, real, on-the-job application and spreadsheet project, while I am taking an advanced Excel course. I have taken Excel spreadsheet classes in the past, but they had only given me a brief introduction to advanced Excel, with imagined examples and scenarios of how an employer, in general,(not your current employer or the employer you want to work for) could design a spreadsheet, but not for a real, now, employer-specific/job-specific need, for a new spreadsheet design, which will be designed quickly, with detailed accuracy, using advanced Excel skills and shortcut keys. I don't want to ask how the new intern got his experience doing this before he started, but I do need this type of experience in order to advance in my career as an Administrative Assistant. How would I get this type of experience? I could also use some help with advanced Outlook skills. Link to comment
