Records managers and document controllers are important to organizations with large data repositories, primarily health care and government. There is also demand for record management and document control in banking, multi-national industry, legal firms, and academic institutions. Being a recent graduate trained in the latest technologies is an advantage for administrative assistants who are seeking work with companies that must make their documents secure, searchable, and compliant.
Currently, the outlook for record management professionals is above average for those working in the health care field. First, the health care industry is growing as the population ages, and more people are required in all areas. Second, according to the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science, health organizations are currently converting patient records from paper to electronic format and are therefore finding a need for employees that have specialized skills in information management and document control.
