What Does a Secretary Do?

A secretary is often the first individual people come in contact with at a company, giving them the unofficial title as the “face of the organization.” They perform a wide range of tasks to assist the organization or company throughout the day. These tasks can include maintaining files, scheduling appointments or meetings, sending emails, recording meeting minutes, arranging guest travel arrangements, and answering phones. Secretaries frequently use computer software to create spreadsheets, manage databases, and produce documents, reports, and presentations. Some also gather data from a variety of sources, manage corporate libraries or manage stockrooms, buy supplies, and negotiate with vendors.

What is the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate?

To help candidates find their perfect job at their desired pay rate, ZipRecruiter estimates the compensation range for job listings where the employer does not state a pay range.

ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimates are not verified by the employer posting the job, and the actual compensation range for an advertised position may vary, perhaps considerably, from the estimated range.
