Dear Aspirant,

It cannot be denied that Administration is a crucial and an inevitable department for any type of organisation. It also cannot be denied that Administration and Facilities Management are the two very responsible departments on which actually other departments in a company work smoothly and efficiently.

Comparatively Admin guys and department have been given a low profile, they don't have fancy designations.

If you are career test suggests that you are suited for Administration role, then that necessarily means that you have the ability to be organised, get things organised and maintain records and documents in a very nice and scientific way.

If you are already MBA Marketing and if you are suggested Administration role, then it is definitely tough to select.

I would suggest that you are not meant for Marketing. By administration, you can also explore HR departments. Since Administration is clubbed with HR departments in many organisations.

Ever since the avenues in career have increased, technology has improved and more of domain specialisation in the industry have come up, Admin and facilities management departments have taken a back seat and yes, but sad to say, they are considered low profile jobs and hence their payments in terms of salary and perks are also low.

Generally, it is meant that to be in the administration department, basic qualification like an average graduate is enough.

Best wishes

Hi Nilesh,

No role is considered a Low profile role, unless and until you feel the same about it.
If you feel the roel you are working is low then yes it is.

Now coming to your question.
Let me begin by telling you that for every other role to be at its best performance, the Admin department is responsible.
So the Admin department is very crucial role in the organization.
They look after all comfort provided in the office right from stationery, to important contacts, to working of the electronic gadgets etc, which makes working easier.

The best would be to club your role with the HR department. But since you are a marketing person, you can use your marketing skills and play a dual role in the organization. You can work in the admin profile, but at the same time, play a role in advertising for the organization. You can promote the organization by talking to clients on the phone and at the same time increase contacts of emergency services by your convincing quality.

In-case if you do not wish to club into any other role, then you can also get certified with courses like Web designing, graphics and so on.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck...........
