Eugene Job Agency Looks at Rapidly Changing Profession for Admin Professionals’ Day

May 21, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ -

EUGENE, Ore. – On Administrative Professionals’ Day 2019, Express Employment Professionals, a leading Eugene job agency, released a closer look at the modern administrative professional.

With technology transforming the way America’s offices operate and the advent of smart phones, administrative professionals have felt some of the most disruptive changes of any profession. Basic needs like typing, organizing and scheduling are no longer enough to fill the job description of one position. The most menial tasks are automated as technology streamlines once time-consuming processes. The result: administrative professionals are being called to take on coordination of more complex tasks, changing the skill sets that employers seek.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than half a million Americans work in administrative professional jobs, with annual earnings averaging more than $61,000. The greatest number work in colleges, universities and professional schools, while the financial services industry has the greatest concentration of professionals in executive support roles. Changes in this profession affect a significant portion of the workforce, meaning workers’ adaptability will affect the broader economy.

Based on industry research and insights from Express experts, the six top skills needed for the modern administrative professional include:

-Business acumen

-People management

-Problem solving

-Strategic thinking

-Project and event planning

-Technology proficiency

Despite major changes to the administrative support profession, Express experts agreed that these employees remain crucial to a company’s success.

“Today’s workplaces look vastly different from those 20 years ago, and the workplaces a decade or two from now will have changed dramatically, too,” said Bill Stoller, CEO of Express. “But there are skills that Alexa—or any ‘smart’ device will never replace and that will always be in demand, regardless of the changes we experience. Professionals who can foresee challenges and think critically are essential to businesses’ success, and as the administrative professional’s skillset evolves even more, he or she will be seen less as an ‘assistant’ and more as a partner.”

Protest in Nepal against plan to cut trees to widen road

Sep 16, 2019

KATHMANDU, Nepal — More than 200 people rallied in Nepal's capital Thursday to protest government plans to cut down about 2,000 trees to widen a key road that circles the city. The protesters held signs urging the government to stop the plan to remove the trees on the outer edge of Kathmandu. The 27-kilometer (17-mile) Ring Road encircles the capital and is a key road network for the increasingly congested city. "These trees were controlling pollution and giving fresh air so they cannot be cut down to make roads," said Saurav Dhakal, a protester. "Kathmandu is suffering from massive air...

Sep 16, 2019

NEW DELHI — Arun Jaitley, India's former finance minister and a key member of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's first-term Cabinet, has died. He was 66. A statement by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences announced Jaitley's death on Saturday.

Indian spacecraft launched last month is now orbiting moon

Sep 16, 2019

NEW DELHI — An unmanned spacecraft India launched last month began orbiting the moon Tuesday as it approaches the lunar south pole to study previously discovered water deposits. The Indian Space Research Organization said it successfully maneuvered Chandrayaan-2, the Sanskrit word for "moon craft," into lunar orbit, nearly a month after it left Earth. The mission is led by two female scientists. Chandrayaan will continue circling the moon in a tighter orbit until reaching a distance of about 100 kilometers (62 miles) from the moon's surface. The lander will then separate from the orbiter and use rocket fuel to brake...
