    Marketing, research, recruiting, sales, and administrative assist

    United States - Tests: 2

    In the last 10 years I have been successful in various jobs and industries, many of which were of a secretarial or administrative assistant nature as well as management. I have been responsible for many offices’ overall office administration and greatly enjoyed those positions. Most recently I was employed as the office manager and operations coordinator for a construction business. My responsibilities included scheduling meetings and functions, coordinating staff meetings, answering multi-line phones and transferring clients to the proper employee, creating office documents, and communicating with public and private entities for optimum success of the company and the best representation of the company image. I coordinate all aspects of communication between the office and field staff; participate in payroll, bookkeeping, invoicing, inventory, vehicle fleet management, as well as an array of other tasks. Previously I worked as the office manager at a software company, a secretary at a law office, a personal assistant at healthcare facility, a night auditor and front desk employee at a hotel, an administrative assistant at a communications business, as well as a manager at a local airport. As a child I spent summers helping out with filing documents and various clerical duties at my grandfather’s abstract and title company and this taught me to be highly efficient, organized, detail oriented and how to best communicate well with people. I believe you will find me not only to be a “jack of many traits”, but that I strive to master each skill as well.
