    • The Changing Face of Admin

      Tomorrow is Administrative Professionals Day. A day to celebrate admins of all types, from front office managers to assistants, data entry professionals to payroll pros, to bookkeepers and more. And what better way to celebrate than to see how far we’ve come? Secretaries No Longer Think back to 40 or so years ago. Admin professionals weren’t really a thing.

    • Should You Move Out of State for a Better Job?

      Is it Worth It? You like where you live. Maybe you’ve already bought a house and your kids are enrolled in a great school. But you don’t like your job, the people you work with, your boss, or some combination of all three. You could also use a pay raise. You’ve tried searching for a different job locally, but nothing seems right. But then you hear about a great job opportunity. The problem? It’s in a totally different state. It can be hard to decide if a new job is worth moving for. Here are a few things to keep in mind before accepting that out-of-state job offer. What will you gain? The first thing you need to figure out are the benefits that moving offers. For instance, you’ll like your job more, you’ll work at a company with opportunities for advancement, you’ll get higher pay, etc. Consider neighborhoods and, if you have kids, school districts, too. It’s important to think about not only your career, but also your family …
