When writing a resume for an administrative assistant position remember it isn’t just a list of your accomplishments, but a presentation of your qualifications, secretarial knowledge, skills, and experiences that make you the best choice for the position.

Sample Administrative Assistant Resume


You can see on the administrative assistant resume we’ve added another section, “Technical Expertise” after “Objective” and “Skills”; this is because it is essential for an administrative assistant to know how to work office equipment and software. Make sure to list specific programs or equipment you’ve had experience with; this will indicate to your potential employer that you already have some relevant knowledge and experience making you an efficient administrative assistant (and the best choice for the position!).

Keep your resume informative and simple

You can personalize the “Objective” section by adding the name of the company you’re applying to, example: “To secure a position at Company XYZ which enables me to….” Make absolutely sure you have no grammatical or spelling errors

REMEMBER to list specific software programs and office equipment you’ve had experience with; this is really important for administrative assistants and could get you chosen for the job over other applicants
