Office managers control the business operations of a facility. How well they do their jobs directly reflects in how smoothly the office runs. Office manager jobs are a huge responsibility, because they oversee the entire administrate staff. They are in charge of establishing and implementing office policies and procedures in an organized manner.
Depending on the field, there is some variation in the day-to-day duties of an office manager. For example, medical office managers must interact with patients so strong customer service skills are necessary. They oversee patient registrations, scheduling and records. Often, they need to deal with insurance companies, so they should understand medical terminology and coding. Other office manager positions may require a different skill set, but all require attention to detail and organization.
In order to become an office manager, applicants may need an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in a related field. Previous experience in administration is also required.
