Your Career

As a graduate of the Business Management - Administration program, you may pursue future career options, such as:

  • administrative officer
  • administrative services co-ordinator
  • office administrator
  • office manager
  • office services co-ordinator
  • planning officer
  • access to information and privacy officer
  • records analyst – access to information
Administrative officers oversee and implement administrative procedures, establish work priorities, conduct analyses of administrative operations and co-ordinate acquisition of administrative services such as office space, supplies and security services. They are employed throughout the public and private sectors. Administrative officers who are supervisors are included in this unit group.

Job opportunities

Workers in this occupation were found across all industries. Key employers include public administration organizations at all levels of government, hospitals, and various firms providing professional, scientific and technical services.
Administrative officers will also be assigned more professional and technical responsibilities and expected to provide more direct support to management. Individuals who are fluent in English and French and who have knowledge of industry-specific data management software will have improved employment prospects. In certain industries that are seasonal in nature, such as educational services, employment may be less favourable in summer months.
Administrative officers usually hold full-time jobs, year round. Moreover, the proportion of women is larger than in all occupations combined. Administrative officers can be found in nearly all industries. Many of them work in the health care and social assistance sector and in public administrations.
An Administrative/Office Manager is often the professional lead to ensure the day-to-day operations of a company or department. This person is the first point of contact for the organization and would be responsible to take calls, welcome visitors, and direct them to appointments or the appropriate personnel to meet their needs. The position also includes handling information requests, inventory management, ordering supplies, and oversees the office space and organization to meet the needs of the staff. An Administrative/Office Manager is also responsible for the supervision and support of the company's clerical staff; this may include general office duties such as correspondence, meeting set up and materials, or other light clerical work. Most often, this position requires computing skills to review, track, and analyze budgets, and maintain records and databases essential to marketing, client management, and goals. The position can also require managing schedules of higher-level executives, setting appointments, or travel reservations.
As a representative of the company, the Administrative/Office Manager must present a professional appearance and demeanor, with excellent written and verbal communication skills. The ability to handle multiple tasks simultaneously, manage deadlines, and resolve conflict is important. The Administrative/Office Manager must also be team-oriented, as a key player in the successful running of the office's operations. This is normally an on-site position during normal business hours.
Administrative/Office Managers are needed in most industries, including healthcare, sales, technology, and legal. The job can vary depending on the size of the organization; at a smaller office, they may be responsible for most tasks that don't fit into the other employees' job descriptions, while at a larger company, motivational and leadership skills may be prioritized as tasks are delegated to entry level employees.

The employment for Administrative officers is a very good.

An entry-level Administrative Assistant with less than 1 year experience can expect to earn an average total compensation (includes tips, bonus, and overtime pay) of $13.91 based on 2,860 salaries. An early career Administrative Assistant with 1-4 years of experience earns an average total compensation of $14.77 based on 28,577 salaries.

Job opportunities

Employees working in this occupation can be found in most industries; however, major employers are hospitals, and various levels of government. Employment levels in this occupation have generally declined in Ontario over the past decade. With the increasing use of automation technology to perform administrative tasks, along with continued consolidation of functions, demand is expected to be moderated. Job creation will also likely be limited as many employers tend to outsource some of their clerical functions to external service providers.
Most job openings will arise from high turnover, as this is primarily an entry-level position. Employment opportunities are usually available year-round, across a variety of industries. Industries that are more resistant to economic fluctuations, such as health care and educational services, may provide some stable employment opportunities. Candidates with prior administrative experience, strong oral and written communication skills, and significant experience with Microsoft Office Suite and industry-specific software are the most sought after in the labour market. Individuals willing to work weekends and evenings may have better employment prospects.
Accounting clerks generally work in offices, and travel is not required for the job. They must have exceptional knowledge of all ledger accounts, such as accounts payable/receivable, cash, and many others. These clerks may work only with accounts payable/receivable, while others may coordinate various accounts for their companies, and other duties may include working with both customers and vendors.
