A Day in the Admin Life

Typical Day….. in the admin life
I thought it would be a good opportunity to kind of check in on the typical task-filled day. Here’s what was on my list today.

  • Follow up on A/R
  • Seek out vendors for cubicle panels
  • Customer Service tickets follow up, including webmeeting and calls
  • Find restaurant and schedule reservation for luncheon for a staff member’s send off party
  • Order supplies for two new staff members
  • Request IT equipment and additional network cords
  • Update new client and contact information in database and contacts system
  • Review project list with one of our project managers to make certain our client is receiving followup and communication on tasks as they are resolved
  • Attend staff-wide projects meeting
  • Search internet for going away gift for staff member leaving
  • Reschedule marketing meeting to review new tradeshow exhibit design
  • Pull promo catalog items for tradeshow order
  • Start gathering information and set up for the company newsletter for this quarter..
  • Contacted Assoc. of Professional Office Managers for vendor resources
  • Make list of client admins – I want to send them an acknowledgment for Administrative Professionals Day. (4/26/06)

.. I’m sure I’m forgetting at least one or two things ..but you get the gist.

What about you? If you take the time to jot a list of what you accomplish .. it’s a good feeling to validate why you are tired after your workday..but also to say, “Hey! I got alot done today.”

And you know what? I did get alot done today. Tomorrow’s Friday.. Yeah!
