Part of the beauty of the admin profession is that it has so much potential. When you choose to pursue an admin job, you can take it wherever you want to! There is so much room for growth in the admin role – whether you choose to stay in it or step out of the profession into something else.
This is why our tagline for Admin Appreciation Month is “Start here. Go anywhere.”
Not everyone is in the admin field for the same reason. Some people went to school for this; others are using their admin role as a stepping-stone. There are also people like me who fell into being an admin and found that it was a great fit for their skills and aptitudes. All of these paths are perfect.
As an admin, you have the ability to choose your own path. You can be an amazing administrative assistant or you can pursue a role as an executive assistant, virtual assistant, project manager, travel planner, HR specialist, or event planner – you name it!
All you need to do is see the potential, and know your strengths and abilities, to take it in the direction you want to go. There’s no right or wrong answer. You really can start here and go wherever you want to!
This week’s feature article explains how you can use systems to help you accomplish your professional goals – whatever they may be. We’re also sharing lots of great resources on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages.
Finally, if you haven’t joined our free Spotlight Your Career 5 Day Challenge, you can still access all the training materials, resources and the webinar replay through April 30!
