If you are a secretary or personal assistant who aspires to be top-notch, this is the book for you. The Elite Secretary by Sandra C Rorbak is an informative guide that clarifies what novice secretaries need to know: what to do (and what not to do) on the first day, how to handle the bully boss and other unsavoury office personalities, what to expect in the modern office, and how to become an elite secretary. In this her first book, Ms Rorbak has elected to impart a true and helpful account of the secretarial profession from someone who has lived it and accomplished great success. With her extensive international experience she understands what it takes to succeed in the field and provides the reader with every possibility of ambiguity the aspiring secretary will likely encounter plus the assurance and tools on how to handle all manner of circumstance. This ‘how-to’ guide includes practical tools such as résumé suggestions, a day-by-day checklist for interview preparation, competency guidelines, and a sample dress code policy to help you become a top-notch secretary.
