If you are on the job market
Analysts, consultants, marketing professionals, bankers, accountants and other professionals all use Excel on a consistent basis. Seeing as how Excel is so prominent in the workforce, it pays to learn all about it and put that experience on your resume. You might find that your current degree isn’t yielding any job prospects, so getting into Excel could increase your marketability.
If you are already using excel at work
Excel training doesn’t just help you do what you’ve always done more quickly and efficiently. It will also extend how much you can do with Excel, and increase the effectiveness of the reports and presentations that you use Excel to prepare.
Often, you invest a great deal of effort into sorting out all your workbook data and calculations. It would be a real shame if some, or all, of this effort is wasted because the end product that you rely on, or present to others, isn’t as effective as it could be and doesn’t make the required impact. Some of Excel’s most powerful, but least obvious, features can help you turn an unremarkable set of figures into a graphical presentation that provides real insight and drives important decisions.
