Did you read AdminSecret’s guide “5 Steps to Becoming an Administrative Assistant” and decide becoming an administrative or executive assistant is the perfect fit for you? A natural choice, then, would be to pursue some technical education in the field. If you are looking for a quick but effective program, consider earning your Associate of Applied Science Degree (AAS) in Administrative Office Technology (AOT).



Coursework might include (but is not limited to):
•Administrative Office Systems
•Word Processing
•Report Writing
•Records Management
•Spreadsheet Applications
•Communications
•Economics
•Public Speaking
•and more…



You would be very competitive in today’s job market if you had the skills and background gained from earning your AOT degree. Jobs open to you would be as an Administrative Assistant, Office Manager, Executive Assistant, Executive Secretary, Secretary, (but not Legal, Medical, or Executive), Administrative Coordinator and others. From there, it would be wise to pursue a more advanced, specialized degree to move up in business or enter another field. Otherwise, you’ll be a highly sought-after assistant.
