No wonder we frequently feel our workday consists of keeping a number of balls in the air while juggling multiple tasks!

We asked 600 ASAP members what they are doing on a regular basis. Which of those things listed above do you think is the most common task for the Administrative Professional? If you said “Correspondence,” you are correct. What do you think admins and assistants are least likely to be involved in? Corporate giving or PR&Marketing.
