Administrative Professionals’ Day, formerly known as Secretaries’ Day, is observed annually in the United States on Wednesday of the last full week of April. Long before this holiday was first established in 1952, Mildred Elley has been on the cutting edge of training students for administrative careers in the Albany, New York area. Since Mrs. Elley began to train students in shorthand and typing skills in her Quail Street home in 1917, thousands of students have graduated from the school with the skill sets necessary to provide administrative support in a great variety of settings.

Thinking about a career in healthcare information technology?

A while ago I was listening to a Mildred Elley graduate lament to several of us about not being able to land a job. She graduated with A’s and B’s in her classes and had great technical skills. Unfortunately, she kept getting passed over for a job. On paper she was fully qualified, not a single typo on her beautifully formatted professional resume and a cover letter to die for and landed interview after interview.
Being a student is stressful on your schedule, yes, but it can also be stressful on your bank account. The more time you spend in classes and studying means less time working. Which means less money. This temporary sacrifice is just that, however. Temporary. With your career training you will be more prepared to enter the workplace and earn a living wage to support yourself and your family.
Yesterday was the Boston Marathon. I was watching some updates yesterday afternoon and saw that one particular runner I was following had just hit the halfway point.
