Administrative Specialist Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Administrative Specialist in Fresno:
Be open to different circumstances, don't compare your salary to others since you accepted the salary, take care of your business and let others do their job. Don't spread rumors. Leave your home problems at home if at all possible. Be loyal and dedicated. Be Honest. Give a full days work. If you don't like your job, start looking for someplace you will be happy.

Administrative Specialist in Lincoln:
`"$Work Hard."`
You get promoted by working hard. If you think you've worked hard enough, work harder. I have been with my company for over a decade. My supervisor continually comments on my hard work. I put in the time to get the job done and take pride in your work. If you make a mistake, own up to it and fix it. At the same time, make sure you take time to yourself. Work hard, play hard.

Administrative Specialist in Austin:
`"$On the job and hands-on training are the most important."`
Learn as much as you can by being polite and grateful for the more experienced employees that are nice enough to train you. Respect for others in the workplace has gotten lost and people can be so rude!

Administrative Specialist in Atlanta:
`"$Be Prepared."`
Be prepared for changing environments. Learn how to adapt and manage yourself and others. Have the courage to speak up for yourself to prevent "burn-out" and becoming overwhelmed. If offered, take the help from your co-workers. Be kind and understanding. Get used to constantly being needed. Enjoy helping/serving others if you don't there's a long road ahead.

Administrative Specialist in Vista:
`"$I wish I had a degree in Business Administration."`
Do some research, and educate yourself. As technology changes, so does your job. Continue to keep learning as you go. The more you learn the better you get at your job.

Administrative Specialist in Los Angeles:
`"$Follow The Fun."`
Life is long — eventually you're going to end up doing what you want to be doing anyway, so you might as well start before college. Take the time, get to know yourself, and pick a degree that leads you to where you want to end up, not necessarily a job, but a path. Too many people settle too early because they think it's too late. It's likely a reason graduate school exists. You should have to pay an additional $100k+ after paying for undergrad. Use your time and money wisely.

Administrative Specialist in Rutland:
`"$Director Of First Impressions."`
This is an extremely busy front desk. I would call it an extraordinary front desk. I assist all of the orientation staff for the Human Resource Department, the regular staff, which includes many disciplines from direct care providers to doctors. The external people who visit Devereux must come through my front door first. I need to identify/ID all of who wants to visit the campus. Triangeing all the telephone calls that come to the main line located here at my desk, which often times can be challenging sometimes the call turns in to therapy for a family member. My advice to a new comer for such a position is to be patient, learn as much as you can about the staff and the facility. You will need to answer many types of questions often times tracking down the answers while the caller is on hold.
