  1. executive assistant

    A secretary, administrative assistant, executive assistant, program assistant, personal secretary, or other similarly titled person is a person whose work consists of supporting management, including executives, using a variety of project management, program evaluation, communication, and/or organizational skills within the area of administration. There is a diverse array of work experiences attainable within the administrative support field, ranging between internship, entry-level, associate, junior, mid-senior, and senior level pay bands with positions in nearly every industry, especially among white-collar careers. However, this role should not be confused with the role of an executive secretary, cabinet secretary such as cabinet members who hold the title of "secretary," or company secretary, all which differ from an administrative assistant. The functions of a personal assistant may be entirely carried out to assist one other employee or may be for the benefit of more than one. In other situations, a secretary is an officer of a society or organization who deals with correspondence, admits new members, and organizes official meetings and events. Some high-level secretaries, administrative assistants, or executive assistants in the associate, junior, mid-senior, and senior level pay bands or those in an entry-level position that requires specialized knowledge preferably or explicitly acquired through a bachelor's degree (e.g. BA, BS, BBA), a master's degree (e.g. MA, MS, MBA, MPP, MPA, MPH, MLIS), or even a doctoral degree (e.g. JD), in a field pertinent to the organization's industry are specialized secretaries who generally assist senior executives and/or actively participate in the work of the organization such has having a hands-on involvement on the production of deliverables. Some other positions such as legislative assistants, paralegals, judicial law clerks, clerks of the court, medical assistants, and medical scribes that require bachelor's, master's, or doctoral degrees to practice, have taken up duties identical to that of specialized secretaries and vice versa where specialized secretaries have taken up some of the research and recordkeeping tasks of executives they assist such as working on deliverables or conduct similar professional duties.
