Recently, I’ve been reading posts in several online groups from assistants new to the admin profession. They have been asking for advice from experienced assistants on how to grow and thrive as an administrative professional. This inspired us to survey our readers and ask what advice you have for someone who is just entering the admin field. Your tips and advice have been incredible!
We’re highlighting several of your responses in this week’s feature article. And we’re sharing even more on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages using the hashtag #AdminProud. Be sure to connect with us there, and post your tips and advice, too!
Some admins are fortunate enough to enter the profession with a friendly mentor, executive, HR department, or colleague by their side to show them the ropes, answer questions, and guide them through the first weeks and months. Others aren’t quite so lucky. So, whether you’re just starting down the admin career path, or you’ve been in the field for years, there’s always something new we can learn from each other!
Supporting your administrative success,
