Today is the day set aside to recognize the Administrative Professional - also known as administrative assistants, office assistants, office managers, etc. Going back a few years they were known as secretaries. Many years ago my first job out of high school was as an elementary school principal's secretary. Back then technology was so simple, and I had no idea of the changes and improvements that were on the horizon. I certainly understand the hard work and dedication these people provide their employers.
Those who keep the office running smoothly and take care of all the emergencies that may crop up certainly deserve a huge pat on the back, not just today but every day!
If you are an administrative professional, great job! And if you are an employer, please acknowledge that assistant's contributions to your business.
