I am pursuing Secretarial Practise course from YWCA along with my graduation (Correspondence). Please tell me whether the course is good and job prospects and salary from this course?
You may find a job in:
* Various corporate organisations
* Government departments and agencies
Well, career growth prospects may not sound very high profile in the beginning. But of course, your salary and other perks will grow as you gain more experience. And so will your duties and responsibilities in the company.
If you perform very well, your chances of being promoted are high. These promotions may take anywhere between 3-7 years or more. If you gain considerable skill in using computers, you may be promoted to EDP/MIS (EDP is Electronic Data Processing and MIS is Management Information System), etc.
Your starting salary will depend on the kind of organisation you get to work with. Usually it's in the range of Rs 2,500-7,000 or more a month. With experience, your salary will increase to around Rs 14,000 a month within 3-7 years.
In large companies and multinational you could also be promoted to the executive cadre and earn salaries in the executive grades. Here you can earn up to Rs 25,000 a month after 8-10 years of experience.
