The role of Office Manager and Administrative Assistant can be very challenging, but at the same time when the requirements for the job posted simply require office skills (typing, computers, faxes, copies, setting up meetings, etc.), and adding data to a database that they will no doubt train you in for, how do you convince the hiring manager in your cover letter that you can do all the things required?
They aren't going to higher a business major to be an office manager, they will hire that person to do the business of the company, so I'm feeling like I'm not overqualified. Nor am I under qualified having had many jobs in assisting and superiors to do the work.
Seriously, without having a degree in filing, how do you get these jobs?
