Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
Every April, offices around the world recognize Administrative Professionals Day, celebrating the hard work and dedication of secretaries and other administrators. As a secretary for over 20 years, author Sandra Rorbak knows what it takes to be a successful secretary. Her new book, “The Elite Secretary: The Definitive Guide to a Successful Career” (published by iUniverse), provides useful tools and advice for readers either looking to enter the administrative field or become better secretaries for their companies.
“The book is a practical guide for secretaries and administrative professionals at all levels and other support staff who are responsible for coordinating and managing the office environment,” writes Rorbak. “One could say that it is a behind the scenes sneak peak at ‘A Day in the life of a Secretary,’ from her humble beginnings in the profession and how she elevates herself into a top notch Elite Secretary.”
Rorbak’s book combines personal experience and interviews with other secretaries and their bosses to give readers a clear picture of the duties performed and the office work environment. “The Elite Secretary” covers the relationship between boss and secretary and how to maintain it, as well as tips for navigating the world of office politics.
An excerpt from “The Elite Secretary”:
“You cannot run from office politics. If you do, I can promise you that office politics of a different kind will be waiting for you at your next job. They may be dressed up differently, but I have yet to hear of or encounter an office environment devoid of politics.”
“The Elite Secretary”
