An executive assistant job description differs from an administrative assistant job description mainly in that an executive assistant, or executive secretary, specifically works supporting a high-level company officer, such as a CEO or CFO. Like an administration assistant, an executive assistant is often the first person visitors speak to, so it's a position that requires poise and people skills.

In addition to the clerical, reporting and administrative duties required of an assistant, an executive secretary job description also typically includes a working knowledge of the executive's duties, so as to be able to effectively schedule the executive's appointments. Attending meetings on the executive's behalf and managing clerical staff are less common, but still frequently occurring, elements of an executive assistant job description.
