As with all aspects of our society, computers are a very important tool for secretaries; they allow for quick and easy performance of many of their required responsibilities, so computer skills are paramount. Proper telephone etiquette is a must for a secretary, as making a good, proper impression with customers or clients is one of their top responsibilities. Secretaries can work with anyone associated with the company they work for, so the ability to work well with others is key.
Employers can have varying education and certification requirements for their secretaries; entry level secretary positions generally don't require more than minimal education, while top-level and executive secretaries most likely have degrees relating to the field in which they work as well as other certifications. Many secretary positions require at least some on the job training or certification programs.
