Branching Out: Launching an Administrative Assistant Program
After nearly 20 years of training quality healthcare professionals, Career Step is branching out and offering a program outside of healthcare services! We’re proud to announce that we’re now offering an Administrative Assistant training program.
This training program includes 140 hours of curriculum, which equates to about 2 months of part-time study. The training is primarily focused on helping students gain the planning, communication, and Microsoft Office skills needed to earn the Microsoft Office Specialist Master credential and succeed across a broad range of industries.
In honor of our new program, we’re offering a special bonus on the first 5 personal referral enrollments in the new Administrative Assistant program. If one of your contacts is in those first 5, you’ll receive an extra $100 on top of your normal referral commission!
Here are a few important things to know about the new program:
- Growing career field – The U.S. Department of Labor expects there to be over 450,000 new administrative assistant jobs by 2018.
- Short, comprehensive training – Quality, streamlined training developed by industry professionals prepares students in as little as 2 months. The program includes training in office procedures, non-verbal communication, business writing, Microsoft Office applications, and more.
- Workplace-ready graduates – Students graduate prepared to earn their Microsoft Office Specialist Master credential and immediately move into the workforce. The Career Step Graduate Services team also provides resume review, interview training, and job search coaching to help them find gainful employment.
We’ve added information to your referrer webpage about the new program to make it easy for you to let your contacts know about the newest Career Step offering and get you started toward having one of those first 5 enrollments and getting an extra $100!
