Have you been dreaming of a career as a high-level administrative manager, director, or Chief of Staff? With the right training and tools, career dreams do come true.
Here at ASAP, we take great pride in helping executive assistants and administrative professionals achieve their dreams. Let’s take a look at some of the resources and tools available to jumpstart your career.
Often, when people hear the term “administrative professional,” they automatically think of “assistant.” Of course, a true professional in an administrative role is much more than that.
Administrative professionals are the biggest support system in an organization or company. Regardless of industry, everyone else in an organization does their jobs more efficiently and effectively when they have knowledgeable and trained administrative staff. In fact, admins are often the unsung heroes of big projects, game-changing business deals, and meaningful growth that organizations experience.
Here are some examples of admin roles that are in almost constant demand across industry sectors:
Office Clerks and Office Managers
Call Center Managers
Facility or Factory Managers
These positions exist in school districts, financial corporations, medical and healthcare settings, customer service centers, government offices, and privately owned businesses, large and small. These jobs usually come with paid holidays, paid time off, medical and dental benefits, and retirement plans.
With the right training under your belt, you can be a competitive applicant for these positions and advance to higher levels in your administrative career.
What training is needed to be a competitive candidate for a coveted administrative professional position? Administrative roles in the medical field often have their own certifications, which can set you apart from the competition. These include:
Dental Office Administration Certification
Unit Clerk Certification
Medical Office Assistant Certification
Pharmacy Assistant Certification
Accounting and Payroll Administration Certification
Even if you have attained one of these specific certifications, ASAP offers additional training and a prestigious certification such as PACE to get you to the next level.
Attaining a Professional Administrative Certification of Excellence (PACE) is extremely helpful in landing higher-paid positions with competitive benefits packages. This valued certification provides training in task and project management, interpersonal communication, management skills, and technology.
