Adminstrative Assistant

Odds of Getting In

The demand for Administrative Assistants is growing. In fact, the demand for medical Administrative Assistants is growing as fast as the medical field. Which is to say, fast. With a 40% projected growth rate, Medical Secretaries are in demand, especially as the baby-boomer generation gets older and needs more medical care (think of all those people retiring and moving places they can eat supper at 4pm).

Odds of getting hired increase with the more specialized training you have. So if there is a particular field that interests you, you can help get your foot in the office door by taking specialty classes, learning your way around the computer, and practicing your calming phone voice.
