I am thinking about becoming an AA, and have been working on my skills in MS Excel. I was wondering if the experienced Administrative Assistants out there could answer the following questions:
1. What skills and abilities must you have in order to be considered proficient in Excel? Good at Excel? Excellent at it?
2. How often do you use Excel in your duties, and for what main purposes?
3. Do you have to be a whiz at writing advanced formulas?
Please advise. I am a certified teacher, but I'm really interested in shifting gears and learning more about the business industry, so I think I'd like to be an AA. I don't want to embarrass myself or misrepresent my credentials until I'm truly proficient at Excel, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
