By definition, “Administrative Consultants are experts (due to their many years of administrative experience) who specialize specifically in the business and art of administrative support (hence the “administrative” part of the term). And because we have such a unique, bird’s eye view of peoples’ businesses, many Administrative Consultants also offer clients advice and guidance on administrative systems and how they can streamline their operations and improve efficiency and effectiveness (this is where the consulting hat comes in and why “consultant” is part of our term). – (http://www.administrativeconsultantsassoc.com/)
Our professional title is one avenue for potential clients, colleagues and others to understand our field of work or unique skills we possess. My professional background has provided a vast array of experiences in Human Resources, Marketing, Customer Service and Education. The majority of these experiences were gained while working with top Executives, steering HUGE organizational changes. This really provided a front row seat into the most confidential of information as key decision makers would change their companies for years to come.
When meeting other business owners and educating them about Administrative Consulting, it seems the term is still fairly new. This may be because Administrative Consulting is a unique niche, and no two consultants are alike. This profession can be likened to musical artists who lean towards eclectic musical genres not completely “fitting” into a specific box of jazz, reggae, classical, and so forth. Many times I’ve found these artists to be the most creative, inspiring musically, and all around cool!! Administrative Consultants specialize in social media, project management, transcription services, video editing, and a host of other specialties.
The advances of technology in the digital space have really allowed for Administrative Consultants to have increased flexibility in the way they work. Working from my home office has been a regular occurrence for much of my career and is how I currently engage with my client’s on a regular basis.
