Our Happy Learners Say It Best
I signed up for the executive assistant program. CareerStep is a great online school. They will help you make things better. Love it.
I researched and found this to be the most convenient, affordable and serious curriculum that you can find in an online program. Starting this course assisted me in being successful on a recent assignment that involved advance work in Microsoft. I was hit left and right with emails requesting formatting help in Word and Excel where several collaborated and the next person could not work with the document. I felt like I really saved the day. I know when I complete the training program that I will have earned the title of Executive Assistant.
CareerStep is easy to learn, hands on and at your pace for the most part. I'm not good in a classroom setting. This program allows me to go over a section more than once to get the understanding I need. Plus the staff is always willing to help where they can to make you feel comfortable and understand what you’re learning. I would take another course with CareerStep.
