Fill your resume with a Problem , Action and then results; in other words, first state a Problem then describe how you moulded that in to beneficial results

Another example: "Improved an engineering company's obsolete filing system by developing a simple but sophisticated functional-coding system. This saved time and money by recovering valuable, previously lost, project records."

Proper Title

"Administrative Assistant (Office Manager)"
