I’m looking at part time or temp jobs at the moment. The following job scope (HR admin assistant) described what I did before I left my 1st company besides my main role as an IT developer.
- To handle Hotel / Air-Ticket bookings
- To handle conference rooms bookings
- To handle visa applications
- To receive guests
- To update Director’s dairy
- To assist in Reception duties when necessary
- Other ad-hoc duties
It sounds strange that I’ve done those, right? Luckily, I didn’t really have to handle visa application or hotel/air-ticket bookings. I was sort of a receptionist when my supervisor or manager wasn’t at their seats. I had to intercept their calls because the Assistant GM would hint during daily morning briefings on handling calls. I ended up putting lots of post-it notes on their laptops, monitors, keyboards and tables. There was a time I was really sick of picking up the calls instead of doing something productive. I was in the middle of a project and the 5-minute a call was getting on my nerves that I took out the phone line of one particular table because that the one that rang the most. 😦
I had half a mind to re-direct all the calls to that person’s handphone because the callers were asking me questions that only that person knew.
I did all those admin-related stuff as temp before joining in a permanent post. So, I guess I should change my line to admin or HR, right?
