Working as an Office Professional

 

One advantage of an office job is that it typically has regular work days and hours. This tends to benefit people who like structured hours, regular full or part time hours and may have family commitments.

Most office jobs include a standard working week from Monday to Friday that starts at 8 or 9 a.m. and lasts until 4 or 5 p.m. Most office jobs require basic skills such as typing, filing and writing, and experience with office equipment and computers. Upper level office jobs typically require a college education or even advanced degrees.

Types of Roles With The Office Environment:

Accounting

Whether you work for an accounting firm or in the accounting department of a business or public entity, there are many types of office jobs in the accounting field. These jobs include file clerks, billing or accounts payable clerks, payroll supervisors, general-ledger accountants, project accountants, accounting managers, supervisors and controllers.

Receptionist

If you like talking to people, the receptionist position might be a good choice. As a receptionist, you answer the phone and respond to customer inquiries or needs. Being a receptionist  requires special skills, a positive attitude and the ability to multitask. Most company receptionists also handle other tasks that might include scheduling conference rooms, managing and ordering office supplies or opening and distributing company mail.

Administrative Assistant

Personal secretaries and administrative assistants might work for a team of managers, executives or be assigned to work with vice presidents, executive officers and more. When you work as a secretary or administrative assistant, you write or transcribe letters and e-mail communications, make travel arrangements, compute and prepare expense reports or department budgets.

Customer Service

Communication and a positive attitude are at the top of the list for people who work in customer service or at a telephone call centre. Being able to help disgruntled customers get the results they seek takes patience and a good sense of humour. When you relate well to others, enjoy helping people, have a good personality and are outgoing, customer service might just be the office job you would enjoy.

Medical Office

Working in a medical office is a little different from working in business office, but it requires many of the same skills. Medical offices require medical transcriptionists, receptionists and people experienced with medical billing and insurance.

Legal Office

Legal Secretaries provide administrative support to lawyers, legal executives and paralegals. One of the main areas the role focuses on is the typing out of legal documents, either copy or audio typing, such as wills, contracts, leases and court documents, depending on whether or not they are working in a specific legal department. If you were working in a Solicitors office you may find that often the Legal Secretary will attend Court session or police cells with the Solicitor. Often you will find they also provide support for the day-to-day office tasks such as organising diaries, taking enquiries from clients and other general administration duties.
