Executive Assistants provide administrative support to upper-level Executives within a company. A typical workday is from 9AM-5PM, Monday through Friday, though hours may vary according to the needs of a company. Time is spent in a fast-paced, indoor office setting, carrying out various important administrative functions. Tasks may include arranging calls and meetings, making travel plans, preparing reports and other paperwork, file management, mail sorting, answering requests for information and general correspondence.

During meetings, Executive Assistants often record the minutes of the meeting and inform employees of changes to the business or special events. They also frequently greet and attend to visitors, playing a role in keeping the office running smoothly.
