What this job is about
No matter what industry a corporation operates within, there are a few truths: 1) Donuts are always a good motivator. 2) No one likes staying late on a Friday. 3) Administrative tasks make the office go 'round. From filing to typing, printing, faxing and answering phones, administrative assistants help to lighten the load on other employees by taking over some of the paper pushing tasks and keeping the office organized. It's perfect for someone who is organized, has good time management skills and generally solid tech skills, since you'll be spending a lot of time on the computer – or checking out the break room for donuts.
