How you found us: .
I taught myself everything I already know in Excel but I feel that I plateaued. I figure if I take a class and get some kind of certificate, it will "glow" on my resume and help start some conversations.
I want to be a specialist, not a generalist.
I thought I knew a ton about excel (Pivot tables, charts, some macro experience), but when I took over at my current employer, my predecessor just blew me away with the Visual Basic macros and reports he developed.
If there's a reasonably priced class, i'd consider it, but most of the experience I got is by "hacking" and a little guidance from experts who are willing to share.
Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"
