In the competitive and fast-moving field of secretarial and administrative positions, staff turnover is sky high, and it’s easy to worry about job security when the economy is in trouble. It can be frustrating to be passed over for jobs or promotions by less-experienced applicants, and difficult to make sure that when it comes to your CV, all of your experience really counts. Some prospective employers won’t spend more than a few moments of glancing carelessly at your application, and if you’ve recently started looking for work or going for promotion is can be demoralising to be without evidence of what you know are impressive and developed professional skills.
This is never more true than if you’ve had a gap in employment for any reason. If you’re hoping to re-enter the secretarial field after illness, unemployment or even a joyful occasion such as having a child, it can be difficult to start the climb from scratch. However, you can turn all this around with proper secretarial training. A PAYE course, Sage payroll course or even something as simple as deciding to learn touch typing through a comprehensive course could help you to stand out from the crowd.
So if you’re thinking that there couldn’t be a worse time to try and get back into work, then perhaps it’s the best possible time for learning from home and getting the qualifications you need to boost your confidence and prove your worth.
