In our increasingly data-driven age, the ability to quickly process and understand information is highly valued by most organisations. Microsoft Excel is the most common program used across all sectors for data analytics and this can be a critical skill for employers looking to hire, as well as employees looking for more or new opportunities in the workplace.

In 2017, a study in the US found 78% of middle-skill jobs required digital skills such as Excel, and that salaries for these roles could be 13-38% higher depending on a candidate’s analytical tool skills. This shows that “jobs requiring advanced analytical tools skills offer the strongest opportunity for middle-skill job seekers in terms of salary and growth as well as career advancement.”

The many functions and features offered by Excel can seem intimidating to many, but our courses at the CAE offer easy-to-follow lessons for everyone from absolute beginners to those wanting to masters of data manipulation.

Investing in yourself to further your professional skillset could be the last piece of the puzzle to help you land your next job or open up more career opportunities.
