They may also work directly with customers and perform customer service tasks. Strong interpersonal skills are important for this position in order to work well with both customers and employees.
A minimum of a high school diploma is generally required for this position, and some employers may prefer applicants who have an associate’s degree or higher. Administrative assistants generally work in office environments during traditional business hours, while some do work from home.
