CES COLLEGE has developed the Office Administration program to prepare students for a career in office administration. Master the skills you need to tackle the challenges of the fast-paced office environment. In this program, you will learn how to organize and maintain an efficient office. You will develop the knowledge of computer software, including word processing, desktop publishing, spreadsheets, and database programs. This program also prepares students for the job search by developing their resume and honing their interviewing skills. At the end of the program, you will apply the skills you’ve learned in the classroom to the real world and gain first-hand experience in an office environment, through a supervised internship at a local business.
Becoming an administrative professional is a solid choice for the future, according to the latest figures from the U.S. Dept. of Labor. More than 362,000 jobs is expected to be added by 2016, an 8.5 percent increase over the 10-year period.
