Welcome to Opportunities in Administrative Assistance

In the daily production that is a contemporary office, Administrative Assistants don’t just pull the curtain… From planning and scheduling, to managing software and social media, they practically run the whole show.

Office managers are in demand in virtually every industry, and because these positions require a unique mix of “hard” and “soft” skills, many employers struggle to find properly trained support. Saddleback College students acquire practical office skills, while learning the basics of customer service and client relations, graduating with a well-rounded skill set critical to career success.
