What Secretaries do


What is a secretary? A secretary works with people, writing and calling them on the telephone.

Sometimes people call them for answers to questions about an office or business.

A secretary works with important papers. These papers are called records. The records are grouped into files. The records in files are similar, like the first letter of a name, or numbers in order. Many times secretaries are officers. Officers can be leaders of a club or state. Other kinds of officers are in charge of the military or police department. There are even secretaries in both of these!

Many secretaries today are called administrative assistants because their duties include assisting someone in management with his or her duties and projects.
