Various Positions Available in the Administrative Field

Printable Version PDF Version Email to a Friend 21 Views

There are various positions available in the administrative field encompassing many different areas. When you are looking into the possibilities of getting hired in this field before you start your prost-secondary education, you do need to be specific as to what kind of job you would like to have. Some positions in this are entry-level positions while others are senior administrative positions for which you need advanced qualifications and experience. You also need to look at the possibilities of advancement within each type of job and the additional courses you might need to take for promotions.

A position as an account manager is one of the positions available in the administrative field. Some of the various jobs you can have within this area include sales representatives, credit and collections officer, bank tellers, pricing analysts or entry level sales. Each position requires that you have specific training either from a technical or vocational college or from a university. While many of these positions do require experience, if you have completed an internship in your training, this can qualify as training. In some cases, the location where you complete your internship may hire you on a full time or part time basis.

A clinical research associate is another example of the various positions available in the administrative field. You could obtain a position as a project coordinator, an executive assistant or a human resources coordinator. All of these positions carry responsibilities that you have to carry out in your job, which you should be aware of before you submit an application for the position. There are administrative positions available in all facets of industry and government, many of which have the same title for the job but an entirely different set of qualifications and duties.

If you would prefer to experience several of the various positions in the administrative field you might want to consider applying for only contract positions. While you would perform the same types of duties in these positions, you get a chance to meet more people and work in different locations. Many businesses and even government departments often hire for short periods of time in contract positions depending on their budgets. This will give you the experience you want to accumulate to help you attain a full time senior administrative position. Working in contract positions also lets you pick and choose when and where you want to work.

Office management is another area in which there are various positions available in the administrative field. Normally, successful applicants for these positions have a diploma in office management from a technical or vocational college or perhaps a degree in this field from an accredited university. With a combination of experience and education, you prove that you are capable of managing and supervising the daily activities of an office. Management skills are not the only qualifications for such a position, as you will need to have an in-depth knowledge of the company, how it works and be able to get along well with the other employees. Excellent spoken and written communication skills are essential as are keyboarding and a working knowledge of appropriate computer software necessary in the world of business.
