Wednesday, April 25th is Administrative Professionals Day! As someone who worked as an administrative assistant for several years, it’s a fabulous day that holds a special place in my heart. It’s the secretaries, receptionists, assistants, and other supporting players that make an office run like a well-oiled machine, so it is only right that they get their day to shine.
In this difficult time of employment and job opportunities, it takes a little creativity and a lot of drive to land your dream job. Networking and volunteering are both methods many use to find a job in the field they want, but there is yet another vital tool that may help in finding that perfect job—getting to know the gatekeeper.
