There is no greater time than Administrative Professionals Week to celebrate the people who get things done. These are the people who run the day-to-day, manage multiple managers, and know somehow knows everyone’s schedule before they do. In celebration of APW, OfficeTeam is offering a free webinar, “Developing Your ‘It’ Factor: Enhancing Your Professional Image and Marketability,” on April 21 at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET.
We asked our Minnetonka OfficeTeam team to give you a sneak peak of the topics covered and their advice to help you develop your ‘It’ factor:
How to dress for success “We always encourage all our candidates to wear a full business suit. We also advise all our interviewees to wear little or no perfume or cologne during interviews.”
Ways of showing initiative at work “Take advantage of your downtime by asking your direct supervisor where else you can assist – you might find yourself with more responsibility and that could lead to more compensation, title change, etc.”
Tips for effective communication “Avoid using email for difficult conversations. These should always be handled in-person.”
Advice on building and maintaining business relationships “Use LinkedIn and social networking – ask for referrals and recommendations! You’ll be surprised how much you can do on social media.”
Tricks for using body language to your advantage “Proper posture at your desk, and a firm handshake are sure-fire ways to stand out in the office.”
The Minnetonka team looks forward to celebrating the administrative professional April 19-25! And don’t forget to register for the webinar today! We hope you’ll join us.
