Workforce Wednesday: Administrative careers
Administrative Professional: A career that applies to any industry and comes with plenty of room for advancement. There are plenty of openings in a variety of fields across the state, paying anywhere from $30,000 for an entry level position to $80,000 or more as an executive assistant.
Wednesday, CH2M Resource Manager, Heather Henderson, joined Daybreak to talk about the industry. There’s plenty to love about the job, she said.
“It’s a great way to get to know any industry,” Henderson said. “You get your foot in the door, it’s a high-profile position, and you learn so much.”
Lots of students come out of high school with the basic organizational and computer skills required to land an entry level position, however they would need training to move up from there.
