Absolutely not. I've been unemployed for 2 years '09-'11. Of the hundreds of job postings there are maybe 5 administrative assistant/secretary jobs and you must be PROFICIENT in advanced MS Office, even if you had jobs where alls you had to do was type routine business letters and do data entry on excel spreadsheets. I have a BBA but it doesn't matter, the jobs are far and few in between and it's not the same job as it was 5-10 years ago. You have to be a self starter, just doing your job duties doesnt cut it anymore. I'd reccommend anything but that. Not sure what to do myself in order to earn a living am too exhausted to learn a new profession but as it were the salaries have fallen so that if you're not married you'll barely be able to pay the bills.
