Sucks to not be taken at your word, but maybe theyve been burned in the past by people inflating their resumes/skill sets? Offer to demo/implement it somewhere they need it. Then see if their behavior changes. Good luck!

Believe me regarding the things I already know. Ex. They told me I will have to know x,y, z excel functions. I’ve told them I know these Functions on 3 separate occasions. They still tell me I have to practice/ watch videos on them etc. to learn how to do them.... but I know them like the back of my hand. How to deal with This situation?

Seriously - they have nothing better to teach you micro managing stuff like excel functions? Sounds like something else is wrong here. If I want to have something done, I explain what I want, why I want it and how I will use it. Excel skills - “google how to do it”. So maybe you ask them for more input on business content and what, and why to do, and then you present them your result. That’ll also show them that you are familiar with excel skills

Next time they bring it up again I would say that you've already told them (and perhaps shown them) that you know this- so please explain exactly why they think you don't. Maybe you made an error one time?

This sucks, but one way I know the person I’m training ‘gets it’ is to have them show me how to do it. (Not necessarily excel-I assume everyone knows excel).

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.
