An office services specialist is an individual who performs a variety of duties for an organization or a business, including greeting customers at the front desk, answering telephones, scheduling appointments, filing, bookkeeping, data entry, and computer work. They perform daily administrative tasks, like with staff and upper management, answer customer queries, and conduct other clerical duties as required.
An office services specialist should possess strong communication, interpersonal, and organizational skills and be comfortable working with people, office equipment, and related technologies. Although an advanced degree is not needed to obtain a position as an office service specialist, a professional should be adept at basic math and possess adequate verbal and computer skills.
An office services specialist can expect to make up to $27,000 a year, but the job market is projected to decline slightly by 4% in the next ten years.
