Always listen completely and pay attention to details. Hold your opinion to yourself until you're sure it will help or make a difference. But don't be afraid of speaking out when necessary.

Sr. Administrative Assistant in Berkeley:
"Three ways to excel."
Be diligent in having your role and responsibilities clearly defined - admin work can cover a lot of different tasks, projects and industries - make sure you know what you're getting into! Be meticulous and keep detailed referential files/notes. Use something like OneNote or Evernote, and learn how to use tags to find anything you need whenever someone asks for it... Keep a running task list and make sure that you add all tasks and projects to it, share it with your co-workers and this transparency can help you with prioritization by putting it back on the requester. This has been the only way that I have found to keep tasks under control, especially when they come from multiple departments and people. Master these three skills and you will be able to adapt to work within in just about any industry.
