Getting an office assistant job.

Comments (2)


How did you get your start doing office assistant work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?

Do you need a particular educational background?

I have worked in healthcare since 1985. I went to college for 2 years and did the Medical Secretarial course not sure if that course is now available I believe it may be under another name.

I started off as a receptionist, then a junior secretary, then an intermediate secretary, then an administrative secretary, then a program assistant, then an administrative assistant but these changes occurred from 1985 to date. With each job also increase of salary.

At this point I believe that if you have any form of secretarial skills and have worked in an office you can work in any industry
