Certificate in Administrative Assistant worth it?

I’m currently enrolled in college to get a certificate on Administrative Assistant but I’ve seen the job postings and mostly all of them say Masters or they need previous experience. Would I need to get an Associate in Administrative Assistant? #administrative #administrative-work

A question for dentists: would you recommend working in an administrative position in a dental office before starting your own practice?

Hello! My name is Jennifer, and I am a pre-dental student at Virginia Commonwealth University. I was wondering if any dentists would advise pre-dental students to seek administrative positions in dental offices to learn more about the "business" side of running a practice. My general dentist told me that when he started his own practice, it was a huge struggle for him to become an expert in areas such as billing, insurance, etc. This really got me thinking. (I suppose it would be a lot easier if you were to join a group practice where there are already people in place who are in charge of those administrative duties.) I will be taking a gap year between the end of my undergraduate studies and dental school, so I was hoping to find a position during that time period that is 1) paid and 2) within a dental office. I would prefer to become a dental assistant so that I can add to my clinical experience, but in case I can't land an assisting position, I was wondering if you all would recommend a front desk position (or something along those lines). Thank you so much for your time! #dentistry #dentist #dental #administrative #administrative-work

Let's say I pursue an M.A. and want to get into a more prestigious university. What kinds of things do M.A. programs look for from applicants?

I'm thinking about pursuing my master's degree in another university after graduating #professor #graduate-school #graduate #academic-advising #graduate-recruitment #administrative-work
