Return to Programs by Division Return to: Programs by Division

Program Code: ABS.10296

Office professions continue to evolve along with new office automation and organizational restructuring. In many cases, office professionals have assumed new responsibilities and learned to operate a variety of office equipment. Most organizations employ office professionals to perform and coordinate office activities and to ensure that information is disseminated to staff and clients. Managers, professionals, and other support staff rely on them to keep administrative operations under control.

Office professionals are responsible for a variety of clerical and administrative duties that are necessary to run and maintain organizations efficiently. They use personal computers to communicate electronically and to run spreadsheet, word processing, database management, desktop publishing, and graphics programs.

Administrative assistants perform fewer clerical tasks than lower-level office professionals. In addition to receiving visitors, arranging conference calls, and answering letters, they may handle more complex responsibilities such as conducting research, preparing statistical reports, and supervising other clerical staff.
