I`m going to go the other route and say Administrative Assistant
. I have been one for a long time and it is a very rewarding career. Being an admin
is virtually recession proof, as your skills transfer into practically any industry. As far as salary goes, depending on where you live, you can expect to start out making $10-$13/hour. If you apply for major corporations, they tend to pay higher than small businesses or `mom and pop` places. Plus there are more opportunities for advancement. An Executive Assistant
is someone who supports top Executives in a company, usually Directors, Vice Presidents, all the way up to a CEO. Again, depending on where you are located in the US and what type of company you work for, Executive Assistants make very good money, sometimes even six figures.
