Which is the best career path to company secretary and is it worth going for it?


I have worked in various administrative roles in Hong Kong for 15 years and have just been asked by a personal contact whether I would like to join his listed company. The offer is on condition that I work to become qualified as a company secretary. My initial research suggests that this would involve biweekly classes for at least a year with regular exams along the way. Can you give me your insight on the qualification paths and what is the market rate for salary? Also, I don’t have a strong background in accounting, tax and law. Will this hold me back?
