Did you accomplish any of your goals?
Was it a good or not so good year?
Anything special happen?
Positive thinking for 2017!  Any comments?

 my answer

I accomplished some of my goals, not all.

It was a good year, one of my goals fell short and that could have made it a better year.

Not really, but sometimes no news or updates are good!

2017 is going to be awesome.. best year ever!

Maybe you can take the time and get some new certificates for online training.  You might as well take advantage of the time, you never know when that will change and you go.. was I ever not busy??? :-)

If you have already drawn attention to your managers that you don't have sufficient work, then you really have done all you can possibly do, but maybe you could also keep trying to expand your job profile.  If there is genuinely no prospect of increase in workload over the year, then you perhaps ought to consider moving on.  Keep the job whilst you are looking because a salary coming in is important these days and it seems "easier" to find a job whilst you still have one with the job market being what it is.   You can also always try to improve your skills during the periods when you don't have much work.  Good luck!

Hello all,

Happened onto this site while searching about Administrative Assistant.  I have a interview later this week as a Adm Assistant to Risk Management Department within local hospital!!!  Never thought my resume would be considered but applied as I have transferrable skills honed by working within hospital Medical Records Department as Legal Correspondence Clerk in which one of my functions was compiling patient health records for Risk Management that were potential litigation matters or that facility/physician was cited in a legal case of malpractice or other matters.  A call out to those Administrative Assistants within healthcare if you could please reflect back on when you first landed a job as Administrative Assistant what was the most scariest aspect of the job that you had to conquer and how did you conquer it?  What was the training process like?  Were you coached in those first few days/weeks or shown your desk and basic rundown of duties and left to figure it out on your own?  Just want to get a rough idea of what to expect if I am selected for job.

Thanks for any input  Cheesy

I started a new job a while back.  I keep thinking it will get more busy.  I come up with busy work, I have improved process and doing a good job in what I do and have been given.  Ok with all that I am still so bored!  There are days I feel like I will fall alseep at my desk.  I keep thinking it will busier but it doesn't!  I have talked to my manager and get little projects.  I would like to wait at least a few years, I don't like job jumping but not sure if I should.   Would you keep a job that for the most part shouldn't be a full time job.  Any suggestions?

There are so many days off here in the U.S. in the last quarter that it flies by... but then there are practically no days in the first quarter (and really first half) of the calendar year. Makes it quite painful during our winter months after so much time off previously.

Welcome aboard!

I would certainly start by having a conversation with the directors as to how they want their phones handled and how much screening they want you to do.

I definitely say something like "Whom shall I say is calling? and "What is the nature of the call?" when I am in gatekeeper mode.

However, I let the boss set the tone for whether they consider these calls interruptions or not.

Fortunately at my company, the phone calls are actually quite rare these days.

Unless they report to you, I would keep out of it. There may be things going on behind the scenes that you are not aware of.
