How do you ensure you keep good qualification for this job?


Candidates are waiting to be interviewed for admin assistant positionMany people quit working on their skills as soon as they get their first job. School has finished, and so has the learning. It’s time to earn money. Or am I wrong?

People who are not going forward do not remain at the same spot. They are actually falling backwards, because other people work on their skills, and are becoming better office workers. This should not happen to you–at least you should do your best to convince the interviewers that you still try to learn something new, becoming a better administrative worker along then way.

Office software, effective communication, MS Outlook, internet, making good coffee. Things change in time. One can not remain on the top of their job if they do not strive to improve their skills and knowledge.

You will compete against at least a dozen other job applicants. You can not afford being just an average assistant in the eyes of the interviewers–they would choose someone if that happened.
