Administration and Management

Administration and management careers span a wide range of industries and organization types. Nearly every organization requires an administrator or a manager, and many often need both – from non-profits and small businesses to large public and private sector organizations. Good administrators and managers tend to display certain common skills. They are problem solvers, who have the ability to set objectives and consistently meet them. They tend to have excellent leadership skills, in particular, the capacity to influence and motivate. They are aware of their own strengths and weaknesses, highly adaptable and resilient, and very good at building effective relationships. In general, although the skills of management tend to be broadly similar across most sectors and organizations, the experience of managing a school can be very different from managing a fast food chain.
