I performed standard office support duties, like ordering marketing supplies for the [home health] marketers, I coordinated training meetings for the marketers, booked airline flights for my VP boss and marketers, ordered catered meals.
I also had the responsibility of signing Banquet Event Orders with hotels, created informational slide show presentations for patients, assisted the Marketing Director with large scale party and meeting events.
As time progressed and I had proven my communication skills, I was given the task of negotiating salaries for new hire marketers.
Awesome job and loved my co-workers!
My biggest challenge was hanging on for dear life with a stern and demanding boss who had a history of going through support staff. When I was hired, I was her third admin in less than 2 years.
What I loved about working there was all the interesting stuff that I was learning about the world of outside sales and marketing, the field of home healthcare, as well as the opportunity to use my creativity to write and create presentations.
