You might be aware that we celebrate Administrative Professionals Day every year, but did you know why? Everything started during World War II, when there was a shortage of administrative personnel in the United States due to a decline in birth rates.
As a result, the National Secretaries Association was created to promote administrative roles and their importance to the economy. It was in their first year that the Association created National Administrative Professionals Day, then known as National Secretary’s Day.
We now celebrate this day every year to honor administrative assistants for all the work they do. If you’re an administrative professional, or looking to start a career in administrative work, we at Job Journey would like to thank you with a curated selection of blogs made just for you.
The best way to celebrate where we are now is to look back at where we came from. This blog looks at the history of admin professionals and how the job has changed with the times.
