I live a couple hours from a big city. Since I'm applying for part-time/office-admin jobs, I wonder if I'm being ignored by employers who would rather just hire someone who lives in the city. So should I mention that I will be moving?
I have finished three years of school at UCONN, with one year to go. I took the last year off because I cant quite afford to finish right now. I am looking for a reputable job, as working as a waitress just doesn't cut it right now. I studied Human Development and Family studies, but I would definitely be willing to try a typical "office/admin" job just to start. Any suggestions of where to begin looking for a new job, other than the paper? I live in Boston, MA, if that helps. Thanks!
I am applying for a trainee office admin job at the local city council one of the key selection requirements says- the ability to use a range of office equipment- i am interpreting that to mean that one knows how to use a computer, fax, phone, photocopier, etc
Am i interpreting this correctly?
Can anyone help me word a response nicely that states i am able to use all this equipment and i regularly used all this in previous positions?
Your help is greatly appreciated
OOoooorrrr...I'm looking to help my fiance look for an office/admin job. She's really good at what she does (multi-tasking, beating deadlines) and what not, but for some reason, we can't find anything. Any suggestions?
Got a 2:1 back in 2001.
Have never used my degree really. Just done some fairly dull office/admin jobs, temping and callcentre work. I'm currently at home with my baby son and need to think about a career. I'd love to do a postgrad but just can't fund it.
Don't really want to teach but not sure what else is available.
Also, the fact that my degree is 6 years old - would that count against me?
I am 20 years old, and I have spent most of my life in education, I have studied gcses, a-levels and level 3 BETEC subjects. I consider myself a reasonably ntelligent person, and I have generally achieved good/okay grades in my chosen academic fields.
I planned on going to university this coming September; however I have become disillusioned with pursuing further academic advancement, for many reasons, some of which include:
- the astronomical cost of university tuition fees vs the likliness of getting a well paying job
- disillusment from my chosen university degree:I chose to study sports science at Uni, however I have reconsidered as I am unsure as to what kind of job a sports science degree could lead to
- my age: I am 20 years old, with very little full-time work experience; I fear if I don't join the work force soon, I may miss the boat and be stuck working a dead end, low paying job all my life! :(
So, with all considered, I am thinking about finding a job in office admin and trying to build a career doing so. I am interested in anyone who has had experience in working in an office environment who could tell me whether there is much room for advancement in this industry.
Thanks very much in advance! (And sorry for typing such a long question)
I have just got a part time job cleaning some office space for a friend of mine. I have never done a cleaning job before (always office jobs and admin type jobs) and I don't know what I should be cleaning. Obviously, I know how to hoover and clean the washrooms and kitchen, etc, but should I clean desks, phones, computers, etc? If so, should I move stuff to clean them, or just leave everything alone in those areas?
So im getting my associates in office admin and my bachelors in organizational leadership supervision. I noticed alot of jobs for office admin were like secretary jobs and shit. Is this weird for a man to major in? Could i like get a job working at the desk of a gym or ymca or something like that with an associates in office admin until i get my bachelors?
I have a workplacement in an office and do a variety of admin jobs, what are my rights and responsibilities?
I want to apply for a job and one of the certs you need to have is a certificate in office admin. I dont have this, but I do have a computer degree and ive worked on computers in every job ive done.
Can anyone please tell me what kind of skills you would pick up doing an office admin cert - is it mainly using computer applications, writing letters, taking minutes etc..?
I'm trying to go to an online school to obtain my bachelors degree. I recieved my associates in office admin. Do i have to go back and repeat an associates or can i just get my bachelors in history ?
I have a degree in graphic design, I just graduated last year. I haven't had too much luck finding a job in this field where I live and I'm not ready to re-locate or move for a job. I've been applying to office/admin jobs and receptionist and front desk jobs (which I don't mind doing for now, I really just need a full time job) and I've been going on interviews but when they ask me why I'm applying for a front desk job and not a job in design I never really know what to say. I haven't gotten hired yet and I feel like this may be the reason why. What would you say if you were asked this question?
I guess I should add that I'm more interested in freelancing right now in terms of design. Is that something that's okay to mention at an interview? I just need a full time job at the moment to help pay for student loans I need to pay off.
If you work in medical office, how did you get your start? I'm working on my associates degree in Medical Office Admin., but first I'm going to get a certificate in Medical Billing and Coding. I'm more than a year away from getting the certificate and more than 2 1/2 years from getting the degree (I'm going part-time). I would like to start working in an office before then, but haven't had any luck finding a job. Will I probably have to wait until I finish my education?
Do only vocational schools have that medical office admin degree? What degree would it be called if one were to go straight to a university? Last and finally least, those of you with this type of job that applies to the degree, do u like the occupation?
