I'm about to start looking for another job. Because of the change of the employment climate (the job market being more competitive) HR managers are saying that we should include numbers in our resume'. How do you include numbers when you have administrative assistant experience? Are future employers looking for the percentage of what you do during the day? Someone please explain.
As part of my performance goals set this year, I have chosen to apply independent initiative. What should I stress focus on as an Administrative Assistant being that my primary job is dependent upon other to provide my work. I already seek additional tasking when I'm complete with my list for each day. What are other areas I can emphasize my independence on that will help me achieve this goal and also get noticed by my boss?
I am interested in working as an administrative assistant/office assistant and I was wondering if a certificate would be good enough to obtain an entry level job? Also, if you do this job, how much do you make?
I am trying to get into pharmaceutical sales and want to know the best way to do this. I have no direct experience in pharmaceutical sales however I do have 3 years of outside sales experience plus 15+ years of direct customer service. I have a BS in Social Science with a minor in Gerontology. I have medical terminology and had started out working on my nursing degree before changing majors. I have worked as an executive administrative assistant, accounting clerk and HR assistant up until the last three years and want a new career path. And before it is suggested that I have to be somewhat attractive, I modeled in high school and college. So with all of this said...Any suggestions or leads? Any and all help is greatly appreicated! Thanks in advance!
I'm going to complete my bachelors degree, and I would like to be more marketable for the Administrative Assistant and HR Generalist positions available in my area. I have a lot of admin. experience that can count for experiential credit, but I wonder if I'm better off studying in business admin or cultural studies to round out my education...
The school I am enrolled in offers communication as a concentration in cultural studies.
Would it be better pay wise to get a job in medical office technology (transcription or administrative assistant) OR is it better as a veterinary technician assistant? Wondering which has more jobs and more pay.
I know they may do these tests for people wanting to have a job as a nurse, tech or something else where you deal with people's health hands on, but I was wondering if they use these tests for people wanting to apply to administrative positions such as a human resources coordinator or an administrative assistant. Anybody who has a job in this field as an administrator, I would greatly appreciate your input.

I've seen this vacancy for a retail store, but all it says is it's a selling support role responsible for providing a comprehensive administrative support service to the store in the areas of HR and Store administration, so doesn't say what it would involve exactly. Does anyone know what the duties might include for this kind of job?
I have been working on and off for over 20 years.
Companies I worked for went out of business, and I don't know what happened to people I use to work with.
Recent short jobs do not seem to be giving me good references.
I work as an administrative assistant/bookkeeper in the NYC area.
When i took my job as an administrative assistant, my employer stated very clearly that i would have health coverage, but not dental. In 3 weeks it will be a YEAR and he has still not provided me with health insurance. What do I do? I live and work in New York.
I spoke with my employer about 7 months ago, and he asked me to be patient, that it will occur. But 7 months later nothing has happened. I originally got the job through a temp agency and so yes it is documented that i am suppose to have healthcare. Furthermore, it is a small business with only 5 other employees and they all have insurance, and all of the past employees who worked my job have had insurance as well!!! I think that because i was a college student when i started working there, they think that i can be ignored and devalued and not give me what i deserve!!!
I just got hired at $20.83 an hr and before that the lady at the temp agency said no one In this economy would get more than $15 an hour?
In Florida or in Michigan. I am currently studying for Administrative Assistant Specialist and Billing and Coding and have found it to be pretty difficult as in I also needed to study Medical Terminology.I am almost done with the course but begining to wonder if all this will pay off?
Okay. I work in a fairly basic, public-sector job as an administrative assistant making 13.50/hr+benefits before taxes (my take home is about 1,400$/month). I have a possible job opportunity coming up where I might be able to move into the private sector as a direct assistant to an insurance agent to handle his office while he is out.
There has been no wage discussed by either of us - but I would not switch unless there was a definite improvement in wage, because besides anything else my work commute doubles from 20 miles round-trip to 40 miles round trip. I am hoping (I did not state this to the possible employer) for about $15/hr (if benefits, great, if not... I have avoided thinking about for now), simply to both provide improved quality-of-life-spending money, as well as to be able to afford the extra gas.
A very good friend of mine feels that I am expecting way way too high of a wage here, and that I should not be so concerned with the 20 extra miles in commute because "it's not that far," which has me worried. Based on my research, a lot of admin assistant jobs are either 12$/hr (and that's rare) or they are between $15-$18 for a position depending on the level of experience held by the employee.
What is the average wage to expect for an Administrative Assistant (with or without an Associates degree), and is my hope for $15 too high?
I have 4 years of experience in the military as an IT Administrator. There was a lot of office administrative work involved, and it translates to the HR field which I am trying to go into. My peak salary in the military was $35,000 per year.
Should I go higher or lower? I live in Canada in a city with a good economy (Calgary) and am seeking an HR Assistant type job.
I am in my freshmen year of college and at first i was going to take a certificate program for office manager/administrative assistant, but student loans do not cover certificate programs.

I don't want to be stuck as an administrative assistant for the rest of my life. I really want to get into the field of HR, but am having no luck without any experience. I'm thinking that the next closest thing is administrative work. Administrative assistant, to be more specific.
If I obtain a job as an administrative assistant for a well-known and sizable pharmaceutical company, what are the odds that I can move to another position after a year or so?
Yes, I have two degrees.
I have been a receptionist for 3 years and I'm thinking of going to college to get a business degree but I'm not sure what I should take in order to be considered for administrative positions. I think I would like to work in Human Resource..
I always get so nervous and at a lost for words. Can someone give me some pointers on not being nervous and also what points of areas do I need to hit when it comes to the question: Tell me a little about yourself? I have been on so many interviews and the interviewer will tell me they like me and hope that I am that candidate who get the position, but I don't. I'm always the candidate who almost got the position or only interviewed for it. I really want this job and need some advice on how to land this position.
