Damn it where's 7th gear when you need it?!
Analyst can mean a million & one things........can you be more specific than data/information analyst? For instance my job title is Financial & Planning Analyst for a division of a well known cable tv/phone/mobile/broadband provider beginning with the letter "V"! Im really an accountant though so number crunch stats & performance data for the division.
Being general though, there's not a lot to get concerned about in fairness, your excel skills you talk of are critical as presentation of data is one of the key things you'll no doubt be doing. The basics of an analytical job is to look at some data, look for trends, look for good & bad things, compare data against a budget or other forecast, investigate anything you dont understand, and then present it to end users in a logical way so they can understand it quickly. These are the kind of skills to talk about at interview.
Im being a little general here but hope it helps in any case.
