Here at Sloane Staffing, a lot of times we see Delray Beach jobs hiring candidates with prior administrative assistant experience. An administrative assistant is defined as a person employed by an individual or in an office to assist with correspondence, keep records, make appointments, and carry out similar tasks. Also sometimes called an Administrative Support Specialist, or simply just, an “admin.” This experience can lead to a very fruitful career. You will learn skills that translate extremely well to other roles. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of administrative assistant jobs is likely to grow 12% between 2012 and 2022.
Starting out your career as an administrative assistant could lead you on a path of advancement to other positions such as a personal assistant, an executive secretary, a clerical supervisor, or an office manager. Some even go on to event and convention planning, coordinating and ensuring events are enjoyable and seamless. Another great position you can land using your admin experience is a Project Manager Job. Project managers are the point person in charge of a specific project or projects within an organization.
The skills you learn as an admin are often what your next hiring manager is looking for: communication, organization, customer service, time management, and confidentiality. These skills will prove to be invaluable down the road in your career. The average hourly pay for all administrative assistant roles is around $20 per hour, but will vary by experience and location. You can even land an administrative assistant role without a degree.
