Business and management skills are necessary in every professional setting imaginable; it is a skill that will never be replaced by technology, only enhanced through it. Corporations, entrepreneurs, even non-profits, rely on the good image of their business. More often than not, it falls on administrative personnel to portray a desirable professional image to the public.

No employer can afford to overlook the importance of those who will leave a first impression on clients and colleagues. Office administration professionals can be the face of a company or the working structure behind the scenes that enable the day-to-day flow of business.
