Authorized User on AmEX card Help Credit?

[ Edited ]
In my new job my boss gave me a Amex card to use when out of town.. When I called to activate it, the automated thing asked me for the last 4 of my social.. Does this mean this card will be on my credit? If so will this improve my score or will it just be there that I am an authorized user?
*** this is a Platinum American Express Business Credit Card.

Hi.. it will show up on your credit report.  I am authorized user on an Amex also and
it is on my report.  I imagine it will help your score a bit.

Is it an amex personal or amex business?
Personal card will show on your credit and probably help
Business card will not show on your credit and will not help
