I'm ready to think out of the box regarding job description of my administrative assistant.
I run a small alternative school and really, we've always been flexible about that this job entails. My most successful admins were recently out of grad school and had degrees in microbiology, chemical engineering, premed, and marine biology. These were smart, very conscientious people. They saw things to be done and made it happen. Lately I've had a series of people jump right in and don't follow directions and so no one can find anything. or they just take random data and put into an excel sheet. I looks lovely but it has no use and really, we need to get park permits and order a banner and make sure parent paper work is all filled out. What can I do? I need help.
