Course Overview

What does an administrative assistant do? The administrative assistant is a diverse role needed by almost every office to perform a variety of clerical and administrative tasks. There are an array of support tasks that have to be executed promptly and orderly to ensure coordination among the fundamental business functions.

Administrative Assistants may work on one on one basis with the executives, high ranking officials, managers or may work for a particular team, project, or department. Their job is to handle different interrelated interactions between the organization and it’s employees to ensure coordination and productivity.

They are professionals who have a knack for multi-tasking, with good business communication sense along with administrative finesse. As the name suggests, Administrative assistants assist others in clerical and administrative tasks but are more than pen pushers or paper shufflers.

They have to perform routine activities such as handling calls, arranging meetings, scheduling appointments, handling mail, making travel arrangements, keeping records, preparing databases, and many more. Other than these they may also be responsible for handling financial transactions on behalf of their managers or executives.

Administrative assistants reduce the strain of multitudes of responsibilities that lie upon the employer by taking care of activities that do not require direct involvement of the manager or the official. Doing so allows the officials to focus and perform only the important jobs. The assistants act as a coordinating link between the official and the rest of the company as they often convey messages or perform tasks on behalf of their officials.

What are the essentials to being an administrative assistant? What are the techniques for work planning? What are the basics of dictation and transcription? What are the effective ways of handling and screening calls? What is the vitals of bookkeeping, planning, and scheduling? What are the ways to best maintain efficiency at work? An administrative assistant is riddled with different issues in the duration of their duty. A proficient and skilled administrative assistant will know their way around different office procedures and will ensure smooth sailing for their employer.
