I HAVE been work­ing now as an ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant now. For as far as I can re­mem­ber, I have al­ways wanted to work in an en­vi­ron­ment where I can show­case my skills and ac­quire new knowl­edge.

Right now, I am work­ing in an en­vi­ron­ment where the foun­da­tion of every youth starts: School. I am happy with my work, the peo­ple here are all kind and ap­proach­able and stu­dents are al­ways fun and ex­cit­ing to work with.

As they say, an em­ployee like me who works as an ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant is the “wizard be­hind the com­pany cur­tain”, since most of the task given to us in­volves or­ga­niz­ing and book keep­ing, it is safe to as­sume that most of the in­for­ma­tion from the com­pany or schools we work with is given to us. That is why for this ar­ti­cle I’m gonna talk about some of the good qual­i­ties that an ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant must have.

Good com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills. All com­pany wants to hire a per­son who has good com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills. Since, com­mu­ni­ca­tion is a very im­por­tant as­pect of life, it is in­deed needed for an em­ployee to have this skills. Just like a nor­mal ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant, my work de­mands me from an­swer­ing phone calls, as­sist­ing stu­dents, teach­ers and vis­i­tors and etc. And thus hav­ing this skills I must say that it is not just ac­tu­ally a good one but a must have.

Have knowl­edge about com­put­ers like MS of­fice and so­cial me­dia. Well, I think this one is given to all those who as­pires and are ac­tu­ally work­ing as an ad­min­is­tra­tive

as­sis­tant. With the evo­lu­tion of tech­nol­ogy ev­ery­thing now is made eas­ier with the use of com­put­ers. And it is vi­tal for us to know now these tech­nolo­gies so we will be able to meet the de­mands that our work­place ex­pects from us.

Have the abil­ity to or­ga­nize things. There is what we call day-to­day op­er­a­tions. And I think wher­ever work­place you are in this one is nor­mal. And as part of our work as an ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant, dayto-day op­er­a­tions or ac­tiv­i­ties are as­signed to us.

And your abil­ity to or­ga­nize things will be tested here. Thus, an ef­fec­tive ad­mins as­sis­tant will be able to keep track of the tasks. As you or­ga­nize things, you must keep it all time in or­der. Main­tain­ing and keep­ing ev­ery­thing up-to-date is a must. This of course be­cause schools are all ac­quir­ing for ac­cred­i­ta­tions, so in or­der for com­pre­hen­sive out­comes, man­age­ment and or­ga­niz­ing of data is needed.

Well, the cler­i­cal du­ties I have as a school ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant re­quires me with a lot of qual­i­ties. The said qual­i­ties help me to have this po­si­tion. My job re­spon­si­bil­i­ties help me to be­come a bet­ter em­ployee. But I know I have a lot to im­prove. ( Paid ar­ti­cle)
