Within a few weeks, the Motor Parts Division of the GE Motors Company, River State. where I am employed as Secretary to the Managing Director, will move its offices to New Anamber State. I have been offered the same position in the new location, but my parents being in Rivers State, I have decided to remain here and seek fresh employment.
In my present position, it has been my responsibility to relieve the Managing Director of many time-consuming details. Among them are replying to letters of routine nature, arranging business and social engagements, and diverting telephone inquiries to other executives. In addition, it has been of paramount importance that I treat most matters with strict confidence and that I exercise good judgment and diplomacy at all times.
I have supplemented my practical knowledge of business by studying postal course of English Institute in Secretrial Practice and Office Management. The study of these courses has given me a fairly good understanding of business techniques and office procedures. This knowledge plus my being a graduate with an intensified course in business English has proved to be invaluable in my handling of correspondence
