How do you say administrative assistant in French?
An administrative assistant is 'un assistant / une assistante administrative' in French. Probably we would just say 'assistant' or 'secrÃ©taire', instead of the full title.
Depending on the needs of the firm, an administrative assistant can have a myriad of responsibilities. Typically, an administrative assistant will be responsible for clerical support (typing, filing, faxing, scheduling). For smaller firms, the administrative assistant may also be responsbile for reception, and transfer of phone calls.
If you have held a position as an administrative assistant in the past, you can use examples from your former job to explain how you will handle the challenges of a new position. If this you have never worked as an administrative assistant, describe experiences you have had where you have had to multi-task.
I just looked into the administrative assistant training program at Careerstep and as far as I know, an administrative assistant performs routine clerical and organizational tasks. They organize files, draft messages, schedule appointments, and support other staff, and basically look after the smooth functioning of an office.
