Job Description for Personal Assistant

Personal assistants are well known for working with movie stars and music artists, but the field is actually much larger. They are there to help their employer in any way necessary.

They may organize calendars and appointments, check with other parties to ensure availability, and run personal and business errands. They may book meetings and events, and provide estimates for activities or events. They help their employers with managing their budgets, handling their accounts, paying their bills, research work, writing reports, drafting correspondence, and arranging travel. They perform the role of an office manager, supervising their staff, screening visitors, resolving issues, and in some cases, representing their employer in their absence.
