Let’s Excel

We asked Shally Steckerl, The Godfather of Sourcing, to join us live and show you the most useful everyday recruiting and sourcing shortcuts in Excel Powertools and Google Sheets he knows of.

He said yes. And we were thrilled.

Then, as always, he sent us a detailed list of what he’ll teach.

Now, this is the point where we would normally pick a few items and write a description filled with mystery, GIFs, maybe a touch of comedy, hoping you’ll come back for the whole shebang.

But Shally’s training cup runneth over with golden nuggets. We could not choose only a few, and using statements like “and much more!” cannot encompass the breadth of what you’ll take home from this session.

So we decided to give you the full rundown. Brace yourself.

Here’s exactly what you’ll learn:

  • How to split and combine columns with “Text to Columns, CONCATENATE, CELL, LEFT, MID and RIGHT” functions
  • Easily filter big lists or combine multiple sheets using “ARRAY”
  • Counting with “countif”
  • Why “VLOOKUP” and the new “XLOOKUP” are way better than Pivot tables
  • Transform exported data from Seekout (and similar tools)
  • Identify and eliminate duplicates
  • Making friends with Flash Fill
  • Using conditional formatting to give your eyes a break
  • What the heck is “char(34)” and what’s it for?
  • Why the “INDEX” and “MATCH” combination often is superior to “VLOOKUP” or “HLOOKUP”
  • Simplify multiple-field look-ups with concatenation (combining fields into a single cell)
  • How to deal with #N/A and funky characters like @ and “”
  • How to combine multiple CSVs in a folder with a single step
  • Automatically convert cells into hyperlinks
  • Shortcuts for PC and Mac
  • Easy date calculations with “Today, Days, Working Days, and Months”
  • Magical “transpose” formula to flip large tables 90 degrees

Yes, we know. It’s an impressive list of tricks & shortcuts. Some may even call it intimidating.

It’s okay – we are going to do this together (we’ll also send you cheat materials after the webinar).

And no worries – if you can’t make the live event, grab your seat, anyway. You’ll get the recording and slide deck just for registering.

Sound good? Good.

See you there.
