I am a Sr. Executive Assistant for 11 years now and want to transition to an Administrative Manager. I find it to be very challenging because it seems noone wants to give me a chance without the proper experience. I have worked to get my Masters which should show them I am serious about career growth, however, I keep hearing I don’t have the experience for what an Administrative Manager does. I feel so stuck and a bit disappointed. Any suggestions? p.s. I have already spoken to my boss about my desire to move up. She has listened, and commended me for it, however, has done nothing to give me that push that I need (she is very influential). Any suggestions?

Hi Patty,

If you go to salary.com they have job descriptions for every role, and they are quite descriptive. They also give you the corresponding e-mail to go along with it.

Hope this helps.

Patty, I would very much appreciate a copy of your job description. It would be helpful to me as a guideline for my supervisor.

One of the best resources I’ve found for general job descriptions is to check out postings on CareerBuilder.com or other job search engines. I think you’ll have the best luck if you look under “Administrative Services Manager”

With the recent changes in the FLSA (Wage and Hour Laws) in 2004. Employers can be very cautious with titles with regard to Managers and Supervisors. Be prepared if you are proposing a title change, work with your HR Rep and develop a strong case that fits into the current organizational structure. Some questions may be asked such as – Do you “manage” people? Typically the term Manager in a title generally indicates the responsibility of managing others, completing performance evaluations, interviewing and making hiring, disciplinary and termination recommendations. You may also want to look under “Office Manager”.
