Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, is pleased to announce the release of a new video highlighting the executive assisting career, including industry demand, average salaries and training that can provide a leg up in the job market. The video is designed to help individuals considering a career change quickly learn more about the executive assisting field and explore available career opportunities.
“Executive and administrative assistants make up a very large portion of the workforce, across a broad range of industries,” said Ryan Ewer, Career Step Vice President of Enrollments and Marketing. “The field is expected to generate nearly 480,000 new jobs in the next few years, and there will also be open positions due to turnover. There is a definite need for new professionals, and this field is a great choice for those looking for an in-demand career because you can be trained and working in just two or three months in a field that boasts openings nationwide.”
The Career Step video introduces the executive assisting field, providing information on the role these professionals play within a professional setting as well as industry demand and average salaries. Viewers will then learn about training that can help them stand out from others in the job market.
“We have created these videos to provide a resource that offers career information and training requirements all in one, quick, easy-to-access place,” said Ben Hartman, Career Step Director of Admissions. “Making a career change can be intimidating, and our goal with this video is create something that can help individuals make more informed decisions about their careers and education.”
Career Step’s Executive Assistant course is designed to prepare students to earn the Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Master credential and start working in just a few months. Having formal training on Microsoft software as well as office procedures helps graduates separate themselves from other applicants and increases their success in the job market. With the Career Step program, students will have one-on-one industry support as well as an MOS certification exam voucher, worth $120, upon graduation.
