    Career Change From An Administration to.....? | It's Time....

    Hi everyone,

    A good friend of mine is looking for a career change. Currently, she has been working with the company for over 2.5 years. It has been rumored that the company doesn't offer that much flexibility to move up to the next level. She even tried to increased her current salary, but nothing has been agreed yet. Also, she has been in the admin. field for another 5 years long!

    Although she didn't earn her bachelors degree, and completed only high school degree, she has more potential to level up for a better job position with a higher salary. By the way, she is local. She speaks fluent Cantonese, Mandarin, and English just basic conversational. She has a very kind and warm personality. She can get along with any type of person at work.

    Yes, I have been researching online whether she can go for a career change that relates to Admin. such as HR Specialist, Project Management, Event Planning, Operation Management, Personal Assistant, etc.

    My questions are:

    1) What are actually the most recommended companies to work for. (Good salary, good package, benefits) etc.
    2) What are the most highest paying jobs at her current situation.


    As always..... Thank you

    Most of these jobs will require post-secondary level education. It's probably advisable to invest in education either part time or full time depending on circumstances

    100%. Some of the jobs do require a higher level education. However, with her long term experiences working in the admin. field and proving skillset, there are some jobs that would look more into of the candidate's working experiences and skillset instead of the degree. Personally, I have experienced like this before.

    Thank you for sharing! I totally agree that investing in education is more valuable than taking an additional part time job.

    "she has more potential to level up for a better job position with a higher salary."

    In what activity does she show this potential? This may lead to what the next job could or should be, where she can earn more!

    You can see she’s has potential - she’s good a delegating, like asking someone to ask someone on some anonymous forum - useful skills when you reach higher levels of management to know how to delegate

    1. What are her achievements?
    2. How has her skill set improved the work place and positively affected the company?

    Leave fluff like warm personality out of it.

    Good luck.

    She has a overall good leadership role. She is very detailed minded. She can get along with people easily. She is not a typical person who give up easily once she set up a target. If she needs to finished paper work on time, she will find a way to do it. She told me that two managers have a full trust in her although they don't know her too well. (only based on her execution and diligent work.)
