You can get a secretarial job with no degree whatsoever, but not a very good one! There’s no ‘standard’ education for that sort of thing, and every little bit of education you get will help you land a better job.

If you have the patience, I still recommend getting a four year degree… but if you don’t, then at least getting the certificate will get you a better job than you’d get without it.

@koveline:  I disagree that you wouldn’t be able to get a “decent” job without a degree.

At my old firm, we were always open to people who didn’t hold degrees and paid them pretty well.

I do think you might have better luck starting out as a receptionist and moving up from there, though.
