Job Description for Construction Project Assistant

The construction project assistant develops schedules for particular projects being performed by their company.

The construction project assistant communicates with clients regularly, responding to inquiries and answering questions. Additionally, the assistant manages documents such as subcontractor requisitions, vendor invoices, and project activities. Much of the assistant's work is performed inside an office, but occasionally this worker meets with clients outside of their office.
