Administrative Assistant (AAS)

Administrative assistants possess advanced computer application skills. They are responsible for organizing and maintaining the office environment and presenting a professional company image. It is the office manager’s job to correctly document business records, to create professional correspondence, to schedule meetings, plan trips, distribute incoming correspondence, and handle multiple projects.

Workers could be called on to conduct research, compile data and prepare papers and reports for presentations to upper management, all while maintaining confidentiality. They work with hard copy and electronic filing systems, update office calendars and revise databases. The knowledge of office software programs, information security, introductory computer hardware expertise and communication skills are key components in an administrative assistant’s skill set.
