delegatinwomen275It’s that time of year again! Kids are going back to school, summer is winding down, and everyone is thinking about the return to their regular routines.

With fall quickly approaching, now is a good time to check your progress on your professional goals for the year and assess where you’re at. Are you achieving your training goals? How is that new skill coming along? What do you still need to do to cross that big project off your list? Is there a certification in your future?

Whether you’ve just started your admin career or you’ve been at it for a decade or more, there is one key thing that can be extremely helpful in advancing your career: professional certifications.

This month, we’re talking about admin-specific certifications, as well as other professional certifications that tie into the admin role, what’s involved in pursuing them, and how you can apply them to your career. We’re kicking things off this week, by offering you some general information about admin certifications and why you need them on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages. And you can learn more about the benefits of certifications in this week’s feature article.

Also, mark your calendars for August 13 for a free #AdminChat on certifications! I’ll be hosting the chat, and talking with a panel of experts about their certifications and how they’ve helped their careers.

Finally, if you have a professional certification that has helped you in your career, share your story with us! We’d love to hear how it’s benefited your career.

Supporting your administrative success,
