Magazines for the Administrative Assistant

I just got my new issue of OfficePro (the IAAP magazine for office professionals) and it was a great read on the bus the last few mornings.

Some highlights are: Corporate Gift Giving, which is a good article for this time of year with some excellent information on this topic. There is an article on Organizational Churn, which is an article about going through changes in your organization. Another interesting article is Stress: As Common and Contagious as a Cold which offers some real life examples of different things people do during their off times to help relieve the stress of their busy careers. There was also an interesting editorial called The Social Side of Business which looks at nurturing business relationships and an article called The Performance Review: An Opportunity in Disguise. And more...

The last two topics have been on my mind lately and I had wanted to write in the blog about them so it was interesting to read these articles.

If you are interested and want to subscribe to OfficePro click here. You might want to pass the link to your HR manager or office manager as IAAP offers corporate subscriptions as well as individual subscriptions and they may agree to pay for this work-related subscription for your office. It doesn't hurt to ask. If you are already a member of IAAP the magazine comes as part of your membership. If you are not a member and would like to look into becoming a member click here.

Another magazine that I would recommend for the Administrative Assistant is AdminAdvantage. In their recent issue they have articles on:

• Top Ten Christmas Stocking Stuffers for the Whole Family • Ten Career Skills to Keep You Employable in the 21st Century • The International World of the Administrative Professional: What is Indonesia's ISI • How to Read Your Boss's Mind

You can subscribe to AdminAdvantage online at http://us.deskdemon.com/pages/us/indexus. You will see at the top a red bar that indicates "Free Subscription". Type your Name, Email address, select your country (if other than the UK or US choose Other), check the box for AdminAvantage and then click Submit. This magazine is in electronic form and will be delivered to your email address.

Both of these magazines have archived copies that you can browse through online. OfficePro's archives can be found here and AdminAdvantage's archives can be found here.

These are the only professional magazines for Administrative Assistants that I am aware of. If you know of others and want to pass them along to our readers, just leave a comment to this post with the name of the magazine and the link to get more information.
