You have plenty of options, especially if your into racing. I happened into a job as a racing secretary/PA for quite a big trainer. I take care of entries, declarations, namings, registrations, accounting, invoicing, wages ect. If you would like any further information I'd be more than happy to fill you in :)
I had no experience at all prior to this job, I had always worked in the yard and on the horses. I took a very basic accounting course before Christmas and most of the accounting programs used are fairly straight forward and almost idiot proof (This idiot is using it!)
Ontop of that, you could work for a bloodstock agency, or a shipping company. Racetracks need receptionists, as do sales complexes and registry offices. All of these options, if you put the effort in, you will get rewarded and move up in the business.
I would work alongside all of the above on a regular basis, and as I said above, I'd be more than happy to give you any extra info you may need :)
