Accounting is the backbone of the financial market, so be prepared to answer questions about your technical experience and detail-oriented work ethic. Employers may ask you to answer an analytical accounting question, tell a story that highlights your Excel skills, or solve a math brain teaser. As you move up in accounting, be aware that employers often expect more advanced degrees, which may include a Masters or CPA (Certified Public Accountant) certification.
How are your Excel skills?2 Answers
I consider myself to be an expert in excel, I have used it extensively for numerous reports with my past employers. For example, I would create a pivot table to show me total spending by quarter, location, etc.
I have strong excel skills. In the course of the years I have created custom charts and used complex formulas which include VLookup, Pivot Tables, Count, IS Errors. Learning basic formulas decreases workloads and helps in analyzing data.
