Office Administration

Understanding the Great Career Potential of Studying Office Administration

According to recent statistics, unemployment rates in North America have not been this low since the 1970s. It’s true that inflation and costs are up, but the demand for employees, young or old, has never been higher.  

But with demand comes competition. You might get a job today but standing out for promotion and rising in the field you work in is tough. Hence, it’s wise to have some certification or credentials to make you stand out in the professional crowd a bit more.

Studying office administration is such a credential. Not only do you learn the ins and outs of office administration but get firsthand knowledge on how to rise professionally. 

The Need-to-Knows 

You come into your job, sit at your desk, maybe have coffee…but then what? Are you sure about how to check the answering service? Can you file the necessary sales and employee claims papers? What about hiring someone in to improve its infrastructure? 

That’s what you learn in the office administration course. The course covers those topics and the basics of computers, MS Word (Advanced), MS Excel (Advanced), MS PowerPoint (Advanced), MS Outlook (Advanced), MS Access, college English, accounting, customer service, business communication, human resource administration, administrative procedures, workplace values and ethics, and assorted professional skills.
