grin We all seem to be guilty. I once lied during an interview I'm proficient in excel.

Fortunately for me, the only question I was asked was the only thing I know when it comes to carrying out calculations on excel. grin

The question was, "how do you perform addition on an excel sheet"

LmaO. As a financial modeller, excel is an app I can't do Without. Almost 90 percent of Nigerian graduates cannot use excel properly. Its not really a friendly app like the other in the office suite but I see it as the most important.

Most people confuse basic understanding of a software with being proficient.
It happens when you suffer from "Orubebe" of the mind.

LOL! I had an interview in Prodeco Onne. The Indian Engineer needed someone, so he asked me if I know Excel, I told him yes. So he wrote down some mathematics( I don forget) and asked me can I solve it using excel with a pen, I wrote something down, he asked me if I was sure, I told him yes that he can bring his system lemme show him. We went to his system, I tried what I wrote, it didn't work. The right formula entered my brain immediately and I followed it and arrived at the answer.
He will get back to me and till now, I am still waiting (this happened in 2013)

I could remember vividly. During my IT days with one foaming company, the Production Manager had to report with Excel format with some advanced graphical excel report.

Since he didn't know it, I approached him, showed him how excel is used, he was so surprised. Even the Indian man who he'll report to wasn't that good with excel. Had to teach them both. Thanks to Cisco!

Anytime, I see both of them, always feeling like a bozz. U know nah!.... grin
