Hello and welcome to a website dedicated to secretaries, receptionists, executive assistants, and administrative assistants, written and maintained by a talented (if we do say so ourselves!) team of the same! This website was the brainchild of three women who have dedicated our lives to others. No, we’re not doctors or first aid workers, but our jobs—though sometimes ridiculed and diminished in the media or even, sadly, by our peers—are important to our bosses and companies, and are the silent cogs that keep the machine running well.
This site will provide job secrets for secretaries and administrative assistants, advice for those new to the job, and stories and resources for anyone looking for help. The title of Executive Assistant or Administrative Assistant (we admit secretary is a bit outdated) can often cover a range of responsibilities and roles. One company’s administrative assistant might do the workload that a coordinator—or even office manager—does at another company. One receptionist might cover an entire office, or several executive’s desks, or one specific individual.
The benefit of having such a varied job position and description is that we’ve never had a loss of content and topics for this website. From interview tips and advice on how to handle a mistaken phone log or grumpy boss, to event planning advice and online resources to help you keep organized, ISecretary.Net will keep you up-to-date on all the latest trends and ideas within the realm of Administrative Assistants, and will also make your job easier and more successful. We’re all in this together, and we want you to not only succeed in what you do, but keep your boss happy and appreciative of all the work you do.
