[Attention to Detail]

Clerical work involves paying attention to the day-to-day details of an office—things other people might overlook—such as answering and keeping track of emails, tracking appointments, and reviewing documents. As a clerk or secretary, it’s important to focus on these details and not let anything slip through the cracks. For example, clerks are expected to review documents for any typos or errors before they go out to stakeholders.

Clerical workers need to have strong written and oral communication skills with superiors, colleagues, and customers. They will typically answer phones, write memos, send emails, and greet clients and customers.2 They must be able to speak and write clearly and effectively, and in a way that is easy to understand. Clerks and secretaries communicate with many different personalities on a daily basis, so knowing how to effectively communicate with co-workers will mean the difference between a long-term career and short-term one.

In this day and age, computer skills are critical for any clerical job. Clerks and secretaries have to be quick and accurate typists. They are also typically required to do some data entry, so they should be familiar with Microsoft Excel and other data entry software. They should also be familiar with other Microsoft Office software, such as Word and PowerPoint. Any additional computer skills, such as the ability to design or edit web pages, would be considered a big plus.
