POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION COMBINED WITH PROFESSIONAL SKILLS AND QUALITIES ARE ESSENTIAL FOR SUCCESS IN HIGHLY DIVERSE ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONAL POSITIONS NEEDED IN TODAY’S HIGH-TECH WORLD.
Every company executive is supported by a good administrative assistant.
That view works for Sara Townsend of Harrisburg, who graduated from HACC with an associate in arts degree. Today, Townsend is an administrative assistant at Giant Food of Carlisle in Cumberland County.
“I use everything I learned, from English to creating PowerPoint presentations to Excel and Microsoft Word documents,” Townsend says of her HACC experience.
“I’m the go-to person for Microsoft and I schedule, plan, and book meetings,” adds Townsend, who transferred her HACC credits to Elizabethtown College where she is close to earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
What’s next? “I want to work my way up the corporate ladder.”
