I have a degree in Recreation Management, and tons of leadership and practical experience in that field. The reason why that is important for administration is because I learned real-life critical thinking in real time.
Most recently, I was a sales and administration manager at a comedy club. As they say the First Lady is the one who really runs the White House, the same is true for the way I operate. I look one step ahead, I always seek out logistics (and usually resolve them), can liaise like a pro, handle the best and worst phone calls...
