Secretarial tasks performed routinely and daily
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Westchester, NY – November 3, 2014
Administrative tasks were assigned daily and must be completed by the end of the day. Tasks pertained around secretarial functions and dealing with paper work and transferring information between their three offices. I learned that in workplaces such as a very business setting, hard work will indeed pay off. This job showed me that anyone who is willing to go the extra mile to get the job done, will find that promotions are possible. Management was very hands on with administrative assistants by constantly making sure our tasks were performed correctly and completed. My co-workers ranged from all different positions and levels throughout the company. This taught me how important and mandatory it is to know how to communicate with a CEO of a company versus the employee who works directly with me on the same projects. Managerial communication skills were key in this job. The hardest part of the job was learning about the accounting field from hands on experience with filing papers for tax returns, balance sheets, etc, but ironically that was the most enjoyable part. I learned about accounting through first hand experience instead of in a classroom.
