Administrative associates need to be able to work independently, as well as in teams when necessary; they also must be able to work directly with the upper management on some projects. Additionally, administrative associates need to know basic office practices and procedures and have a general knowledge of accounting. They will need communications and problem solving skills, as well as a strong work ethic, interpersonal skills, and customer service skills.
Although it is possible for an administrative associate to work their way up from the entry-level office position to this one, most companies hire for this position with educational qualifications. Companies generally look for administrative associates with a bachelor's degree in business or a related field. Basic accounting knowledge is preferred, although extensive knowledge is not required. Along with education, anywhere from one to five years of administrative or clerical work is preferred when hiring for this position. However, a combination of education and work experience may also be considered. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
