It’s Almost Time to Celebrate Administrative Professionals Week in the Bay Area!

Robert Half’s Bay-area OfficeTeam divisions are ramping up to celebrate Administrative Professionals’ Week come April 19 - 25. Administrative Professional’s Week (APW) is a holiday in April that celebrates the important role administrative professionals play in businesses.

“Excitement is in the air as APW week approaches,” said Victoria Costa, Robert Half branch manager overseeing OfficeTeam operations in San Jose. “APW is our time of the year to really connect with our clients and encourage them to celebrate APW and show their support staff just how much they are appreciated.”

Additionally, with the celebration of Administrative Professionals Week , OfficeTeam is offering a free webinar to candidates, “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.

When companies think about hiring new team members or promoting existing employees to management roles, they look for individuals who have an executive presence -- people with a strong professional image and leadership potential. Everything from the way you dress to how you communicate with others in the workplace can make an impression and impact how others perceive you. Having that “it” factor can help you advance in your career, whether you’re hoping to move up the ladder at your current employer or find a new position. 

During this event, OfficeTeam Executive Director Robert Hosking will cover:

  • How to dress for success
  • Ways of showing initiative at work
  • Tips for effective communication
  • Advice on building and maintaining business relationships
  • Tricks for using body language to your advantage

Encourage your administrative and support staff to register for the webinar today! It takes more than the right skills to advance in one’s career these days. And this webinar is just the resource to help increase one’s “wow factor” in the workplace.
