An administrative assistant works on behalf of an executive or other leader in an organization. If you are highly motivated and organized then this might just be the job for you. Day to day life as an administrative assistant includes the coordination of the calendar for one or more executives, taking phone calls and messages, sending emails on behalf of an assigned executive, prepping for a large meeting or presentation, capturing notes in meetings and many other related tasks.
Administrative assistants are typically outgoing and friendly people who work well with many leadership personality types. Strong administrative assistants excel at organization, management of multiple peoples' time and expectations, and have a self-starter attitude, getting things done before others recognize the need. People that are successful in this role will usually progress into assisting higher level leaders (sometimes becoming an Executive Assistant), start managing other administrative assistants or become an office manager.See Job ListingsGet Job Alerts
