What do Office Clerks do?

The responsibilities of an office clerk vary depending on what office they work for. An office clerk for a law firm will do completely different work than an office clerk for a doctor’s office or non-profit organization. Many store important documents and answer phone calls. Others may create the payroll for their office, bookkeep, and create reports for their bosses and supervisors. There are specific titles for an office clerk that describe where they work such as police clerk and Congressional Aide. A police clerk keeps track of records that are important for the police department that they are working for. Congressional district aides work with elected officials and help assist the citizens that live in their region.
