New to being an Office Manager Hello Everyone, My name is Rhonda and I am currently the Office Manager in a Career Center at an Educational Institution and need your assistance. I manage the calendars for 11 counselors, along with scheduling student appointments, which requires me to check the email and answer the phone and partially managing the office budget. Whew! that was a lot. All of this is done at the front desk, which means that I am the first point of contact and can get very busy. Keep in mind that I am the only person at the front desk, so I am like an Octopus. Do any of you have any suggestions or tips on the best way to manage the front desk? Manage time, prioritizing and multi-tasking. What are your secrets? Any books you may be able to recommend. I am desperate. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance, Rhonda Rhonda Peoples-Jones 11/22/2013 8:39:04 AM2

Help! Office Policies I work for a municipality and our new insurance carrier is requiring us to add additional office policies to the ones we currently have. I'm looking for written policies on Internet Usage and Offensive Behavior. We're a small to mid size municipality(population appx. 16,000) and some of the larger cities have policies that are really huge. If anyone uses any policies similar to these but kind of simple in form, I'd appreciate any assistance or information. Please email me at Sandra Clair-Ball 2/12/2008 10:39:29 AM3
