Overview

Today's office assistants are so overwhelmed with the demands of multiple bosses, they need their own assistants! The Internet provides a motherload of resources and tools--IF you know how to use it! CyberAssistant is a quick-reading guide to this amazing technology. Presented in clear, step-by-step explanations, the book shows assistants how to:

  • use e-mail, send attachments, and keep files of their e-mail, as well as critical e-mail netiquette
  • master the standard search engines, such as Yahoo, Lycos, and Altavista to conduct a quick and successful search for highly specific information (find a competitor's Web site...contact an embassy...look up a newspaper article...etc., etc.)
  • make reservations for nearly anything: travel arrangements, theatre tickets, sports events (and then print out a map and directions)
  • research the best prices for a product, track a FedEx package, check into an industry newsgroup, look up a long-lost friend, and on and on and on!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Despite the title, more than half of this book is given over to a simple, old-fashioned introduction to the Internet. Smith-Hemphill wastes no words, offering clear, vernacular answers to "Who is on the Internet?" and "How do I choose between an online service or ISP?" The second half delves into real-world applications, concentrating on the sorts of services a real assistant would provide: getting theater tickets, tracking packages, finding vendor addresses, locating newspaper articles, and much more. Truth be told, there are still plenty of management types who haven't figured out just what their younger staff are doing with the web and E-mail. This heavily illustrated volume will make it all clear in one afternoon. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
