Find and read all the information available about the course and profession to make a well informed decision before considering this career path. Understand the commitment involved and be willing to make sacrifices to complete it successfully.

Being organised is essential. Establish what goals you want to achieve and set out how you are going to achieve them – don’t lose focus along the way.

When starting off, the right training and experience is far more valuable in the long run than an initial pay increase. Remember Rome wasn’t built in a day so patience is essential, you will eventually get there.

Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.
