School Secretary Resume

The school secretary is an educational administration employee, subordinated to the school principle and with tasks that are assigned by the school principals. School secretaries have to take care of the clerical work necessary in an educational institution. They do basic office clerk tasks, such as answering phones, appointing meetings, giving information to the public or parents, organizing and compiling paper work, correspondence and so on. They also assist students in all their clerical issues, like registration, graduation, transfers and other related aspects.


School secretaries keep records and assist principals in making reports regarding different matters. They inform the parents in school related matters and transmit the parents' messages to teachers. They also assist the teachers in different administrative issues. Depending on the educational level of the school, their responsibilities could be more or less complex. In higher educational forums, it is more likely to be more than one secretary or administrative assistant. The resume of a school secretary should underline the administrative and clerical skills, organizational and communicational skills. The educational background is irrelevant, but similar work experience is most definitely an advantage.
