Whether you're a big corporate or a struggling NGO, budgets are getting smaller and tighter everywhere you look. While everyone is trying to get the good work done, administration and marketing tasks often fall by the wayside. This leads to backlogs and many late nights as there are fewer people available to share the workload. This is usually when you try to squeeze the budget and hire a part or full-time assistant to help with these duties. This is not necessarily the only way to go, there are other options for getting more help for less cost.
