I enjoy working in office environments, but it's always been in school systems. I like the interaction I get from working at the receptionist desk with visitors, but want more responsibilities and a job title that makes my position more unique. So I'm thinking of going for Office Management, which means returning to school. But is this a position that is needed in every office, big and small? Or is this such a generalized description that it would be looked over on a resume?

My Biggest Regret: Going to College
Many offices, both big and small, have an Office Manager. Generally speaking, professional hiring mangers and recruiters care more about what you do on a daily basis as opposed to what title you have. In other words, having the title "Office Manager" can mean many different things at many different companies so all that to simply say I would recommend not getting caught up in "title chasing" and, instead, focus on "passion chasing" as you work on your professional brand.
Your professional and personal brand is much more important than a job title. For example, creating a LinkedIn profile and writing a simple article about something you are passionate about is one of many ways to improve your personal brand. These types of activities, not your job title, will help you stand out from the competition.
I hope this helps!
