How are your Microsoft Office skills? I hired a great salesman and his sales skills are second to none. He was the #1 salesperson at his previous job and has been in retail for over 30 year. I’m thrilled to have him on our sales and marketing team. Why am I bringing this up? Because I learned something! Not everyone has a job that utilizes Microsoft Office skills! I asked him to keep track of something on a spread sheet and he wasn’t exactly sure how to set that up! It was a real ah-ha moment for me! Not everyone’s world revolves around Microsoft Office!

Below is a list of Microsoft Office skill I think would help anyone that wanted to either change careers, or advance the career they already have.

Microsoft Office Skills

  • Creating spreadsheet.
  • Creating tables.
  • Creating pivot tables.
  • Running and creating macros.
  • Data analysis.
  • Data visualization.
  • Validating data.
  • Creating documents.

If you can do just these few things, you would be surprised at the power the knowledge will bring you! Microsoft Office skills are one of the most valuable skills you can have in your career. There are plenty of classes, tips and tricks to help you learn. I think I know a lot about Microsoft Office and I only know a fraction of what it can do. Don’t be afraid to learn as much as you can. It can only help you!
