An office essential

How to make yourself indispensable

Every office needs an efficient organizer, someone who makes sure phone calls are returned, meetings are scheduled, records are filed and bills are paid.

These organizers or administrative assistants are often considered indispensable by their managers and coworkers. 

It’s an entry-level job that has “promotion potential” stamped all over it!  All you need is some additional education on top of all that experience as the office organizer.
