Excel Training Workshop

Date: Wednesday, November 11th
Time: 6 – 7PM
Location: 101 Transportation Building

No matter what career path you choose, being proficient in Excel is a necessity. Excel reduces the amount of manual work required for basic data analysis and reduces the amount of time and frustration dealing with simple tasks. Excel is so commonplace in a professional environment that proficiency in Excel is almost expected, and lacking these Excel skills can become a barrier when collaborating with fellow employees on team orientated projects. In this seminar we will cover various functions, conditional formatting, pivot tables and various other tips to improve your excel skills and impress your future employers.
