I’m in need of some advice. I work at an asset manager and had what I would call an “informal interview” with the equity analysis group. I was more-or-less told that I’d be welcome to come back in a few months and have a formal interview. However, because of my unrelated background, I was also told that one big thing I should be working on in the meantime are my excel skills, and that I’d furthermore have to prove I took the time to develop them. My questions are: How exactly do I go about doing this, and also, what do they mean by “I’ll have to prove it”? Should I be expecting them to give me some sort of excel proficiency test?
University classes don’t seem like an option because its already mid-semester and some of the classes that are geared towards excel aren’t available to visiting students anyway. I was thinking I could go with something like WSP or Breakingintowallstreet to learn excel, but I’m not sure how I would go about “proving” I did this.
I would really appreciate any advice…
Thanks in advance!
