Secretary Interview Questions 

Secretaries often take a part of the work burden from their superiors and assist them in different ways. Their duties include filing documents, maintaining them, creating a database, scheduling and informing about meetings, managing calendars and much more. They also need to possess excellent verbal and written communication skills. If the work requires travelling with the superior, having a multilingual secretary can help. Look out for sharp, mindful and work-oriented candidates.
