10/26/2021 | 10:06am EST

As you explore your career development, you may not realize all the different administrative jobs you can pursue. Administrative professionals have been indispensable in supporting the business continuity efforts of organizations amid the pandemic, according to the Robert Half Salary Guide.

These tech-savvy and versatile employees with increasingly high-paying administrative jobs are taking on duties outside their traditional roles, as they help companies restart projects put on hold and operate with hybrid teams.

What's new with administrative jobs?

Administrative professionals have always worn many hats, and they're now wearing even more.

The administrative staff members in greatest demand are those with elevated technical abilities and an analytical skillset. Many of them are taking the lead with virtual meetings and presentations, cloud-based software and customer relationship management (CRM) platforms.

Job seekers with standout soft skills and the ability to communicate with an array of personality types are also sought by employers. Experience with help desks and social media accounts are pluses for these roles.

Take a look at these 10 roles listed in the Salary Guide in which administrative and customer support professionals can earn attractive wages with experience and training.
