I want to work somewhere like a hospital, clinic, or anywhere that has a front desk or office. I want to do paper work, file papers, answer phones, enter data on computers, etc...
So, what would I need to get a job like that.
Technically you do not need to get an AA to become an administrative assistant. My advice, find a job while you are getting the AA. The work experience is far more valuable than the AA degree. That being said, I think you should still go for the AA. It will help you get promoted, be competitive in finding a job, and just generally provide you with more opportunities. You'll need computer classes, basically typing, word processing, data entry and software skills. Communication classes would be helpful. Any sort of business classes or even just getting a business certificate. If you plan on making it a long term career, you may want to get into a field that you find interesting. Get a certificate in that area.
you can go to the college website and they should have a concler or call any number from the college and tell them if theres a way you can talk to somone about you mayor and what you classes you would have to take. then they will transfer you to somone that does know and they will tell you where to meet and time and date. that how it worked for me and the councler went through every class i had to take and if i was considering transfering... my college thing where i met my councler was college succes councler maybe they might have one.
you can go to your councler and ask. i did that and my cauncler gave me all the classes i needed for my major. theres a website called assist and you just type in your major and the universities or even comunity college if your in there if you would like to transfer... i dont know if they only show schools in california. but try it out it really helped me.
Your going to mainly be looking at computer classes, look for ones that teach you how to use certain programs and softwares, any type of data processing class would be helpful also. It all depends on what the college you attend offers.
are you saying that there is no councler at the college you want to go?
Well, I guess there is...but I don't know who they are.
I don't have a counselor. O_o
Okay, thanks! :)
