Don’t wait for someone to celebrate you this year on Administrative Professionals Day. Reward yourself—because you deserve it—by seeking out a growth opportunity.
Many administrative professionals report that, more than a gift certificate, they value opportunities to learn and grow.
Among the top skills that employers want? Communication, writing, finance and customer service, according to Marc Blumenthal of Intelladon.
Employers don’t usually provide training for all employees, though, so it’s something to explicitly lobby for.
With the approach of Administrative Professionals Day, it’s a prime opportunity to express interest in receiving online training, going to a conference or seminar, or signing up for a continuing education class.
Tip: Align your request with how it will help you do your job better.
Would online training help you reach a goal listed on your annual review? Would an educational seminar enable you to help your boss achieve a departmental goal?
