Meet Office Administration Faculty Member: Liberty Harrison
Why Office Administration is a great career option:
Some of the best business administrators that I have met and worked with have started as office administrators. This is a great field to learn the business from the bottom up and those skills can transfer with you into management positions. One of the perks of this job is you get to be creative and involved in all the projects.
Be aware of other peoples time – be on-time, be punctual. This is generally lacking in society and you can stand out just be showing up on time. Be mindful of timelines.
I didn’t plan on getting an Associates degree when I first started out. It was brought to my attention that I could improve my life and the company I work for through obtaining my Associate Degree. Once I realized that I earned three and have never regretted it. It’s important to start somewhere. My advice is start with a class and see where it takes you!
