Ask a Career Counselor for Answers ASAP
I need to take classes in 2013 Microsoft Office (PPoint, Excel, Word, Outlook) for beginners, Intermediate and advanced. What schools would you suggest that will certify you once you pay or sign up to attend. Do they have sumer classes? Or any websites that give you the best in these courses you would suggest I need to learn immediately. Is Admin Asst jobs still paying well. I lost my job as an admin asst 3.5 yrs ago and am really rusty on my skills. However, have worked as an admin for 12 years before that. Currently I am in customer service on the Floor selling flooring products at a Major Home Provider (THD). It does not pay well and they are not hiring permanent nor do I want to stay there. I need an office position with benefits that pays over 35-40K minimum. I am very stressed if I go to an agency they will test me on that software. I will not do well right now if they test me. I would even do medical assistant (however) I would need a school to get certified in that as well. Or something in the medical field like sonogram or Electrologist (a school that is 1 year maximum) to get certified in any of these above. I do not have a college degree. I have 9 months at Berkeley College years ago when I took the Intensive Secretarial Program. I am self-supporting, have a mortgage and need a good job and do not have the funds right now for a 2 year school - so I need less than 1 year and sell my place or get training during the day or evening and work part-time (which will be hard to keep up with the bills). Please give me your best advice on all above. I live in Northern NJ. Clifton, but will attend anyting within 40 miles of the area.
Any online courses that you may provide that are free that certify you - you did not respond to medical field if I wanted to go into lab tech, or ultrasound or electro monitoring etc.
