The easiest way to get started is to apply for jobs in this space and start at a company that you are comfortable. I would make sure that the company has growth opportunities outside of the administrative positions in the event that you eventually want to grow and take on other aspects or career paths in the company.
It is important to note that people and communication skills are extremely important, if not required in this field. Your ability to interact with different people in different ways will become paramount to your success so it is important to understand this and master it.

I'm basically a shy person and decided to start off in sales to develop my people skills. In my years as a salesperson I found I was very good at the paperwork/administrative side of the business. I developed people skills in my sales job but administration was my strength as I was more interested in that side of the business. After several years in sales I decided to focus on my strengths which was detail/administrative work. I found a career that enabled me to use those administrative skills and enjoy my work while making a good living. I looked for work in administration and found my first administrative job as a data entry person. From there I moved on to a bigger company and was promoted within the company to various positions that used my strengths and experience. Today I work for a worldwide insurance company managing hundreds of annuity forms and I love going to work everyday.
