Administrative Professional

Feb 18, 2013

Age: 36
Hometown: Ogden, Kansas

Current Residence: Neenah, Wisconsin

Why did you choose the Administrative Professional Program?
I have always liked the office environment, the materials and the many different tasks involved in this profession. I love organizing, creating projects, planning, writing, and of course all the people with whom you get to form relationships. There are so many possibilities in this profession and I believe this is just a base to further anyone’s career, no matter where you go: medical, automotive, accounting, etc.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?
I am excited how the profession is changing; administrative professionals are no longer just seen as “secretaries,” but more as a key player. Most businesses view their assistants more as business partners and provide them with more responsibility. I also love all the technology that can be used in this profession.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?
I live nearby, so having a college that was close to my home was a bonus, but I had heard many good things about FVTC. I liked what I read, as well as the variety of programs offered and the experience that the instructors have. From the beginning, I felt welcomed, and that makes a difference. I love all the activities available to give you experience if you want it. My favorite is the opportunity to be a journalist for the student newspaper, the Fox Times. I write articles, meet and interview speakers who come here, and I even have my own column. There are many great opportunities like that here to fit your interests, with an affordable price and flexibility to attend, which is helpful as a non-traditional student.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?
I would like to make a difference. I have always liked media and I would love to have a position at a newspaper or news station, etc. I want to use the skills that I’ve gained, along with what I am good at doing, such as writing, analyzing, researching, and listening. Plenty of room for growth and challenges would be great!
