Job Description for Senior Secretary

Senior secretaries go by a number of different job titles depending on their employers; these include executive secretary, administrative assistant, and executive administrative assistant. Regardless of the title, these individuals perform a similar role, helping businesses run efficiently by performing a number of administrative tasks. Senior secretaries usually make more judgments about administrative tasks than their junior counterparts, such as decision-making about incoming requests and other forms of communication for managers and senior staff. Senior secretaries might respond to requests unilaterally without guidance, screen incoming communication, and bring only important matters to the attention of senior staff.
