Secretary / Receptionist / Executive Assistant

How to become a Secretary or Receptionist

Secretaries/Receptionists/Executive Assistants make up 4.2 million people in the work force, and 1,940,000 of these people are secretaries (this number does not include medical and legal secretaries). Another 1,618,000 are executive assistants, and the rest are medical/legal secretaries.

When applying for a secretarial position, applicants may find that only a high school diploma is required. However, a college degree may come in very handy and in most situations will help capture a higher pay rate.

Many community colleges offer an administration degree or something similar. Those who seek to secure this type of degree will strengthen their skills in accounting, keyboarding, computers, transcription, grammar, English, records management, and office procedures.
