Now that you have decided to enter the workforce after graduation, there are many different opportunities to choose from. How do you go about choosing a career at first? Most people start out in the same field that they trained for. Truth of the matter is, if you are not comfortable with the work you are doing, there is no way you are going to stick around for long.
Entry level office careers could include everything from office assistant to administrative assistant to medical assistant to receptionist to IT support and spread technician to something entirely different. In the medical field, an office assistant would perform basic clerical tasks and a person in the office of an administrator would be their responsible for date keeping, updating and helping to answer the phone to name a few.
The majority of the jobs in an entry level office job would fall in the “general” category. An administrative assistant would be performing simple office related work such as answering the phone, high-fiving the person in charge of the office when it rings and taking copious notes in a filing cabinet. A business valuation receptionist would be greeting patients and answering their questions over the phone. Check with local colleges for job placement and class lists and you may be able to be hired right out of school.
So how exactly do those careers pay? Entry level office careers may start out with a base annual salary rather than the hourly rate that you might expect from more specialized careers. These job titles are entry level, not entry level management.
