“I love it!” That’s Valarie Kirchner’s impression of the Medical Assistant Program at Career Quest Learning Centers. Actually, that’s how she feels about the whole Bay City campus. A member of the very first class at the new campus, Valarie is excited for what the future holds—and so far, so good. “The teachers are cool and understanding. They make me feel comfortable so I’m not afraid to raise my hand and ask for help,” says Valarie. “And in class, it feels like a real community where we learn from each other. On group projects, we work together and get to know all the people in the classroom. Not everyone is always going to be perfect at everything. We know that. We help each other so we can succeed as a team.”

Here are some tips on how to improve your assertiveness skills as an administrative assistant.
