When we review the job responsibilities of our position, the phrase, "other duties as assigned." is usually listed last on the list. The idea is there will be other duties and responsibilities not specifically listed and if your boss says, 'Do it.' you are required to take on that additional task. Management duties include:
- Managing your boss.
- Managing yourself.
- Making decisions in the absence of your supervisor or handle issues as they arise that he or she trusts you will deal with appropriately.
- Managing other support staff or personnel in the department. Such as file clerks, receptionists, work study students/interns, etc.
- Managing tasks/projects.
- Negotiating with vendors.
