All offices need a solid support system that will help them function in an efficient manner. Administrative assistants are the core of each support system as their duties now overlap with those of the mid-level managers owing to the influx of modern technology and all that it stands for.
From regular tasks like responding to correspondence and managing schedules to managing more important things like assisting company events management and even helping HR managers with recruiting activities, administrative assistants are everywhere.
There is a lot that an employer looks for when hiring an administrative assistant. When applying for a position as an administrative assistant, an individual will need to make sure that he writes just the right set of skills in a cover letter in order to attract attention.
