What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Executive Assistant to CEO in Winnipeg:
That even if your employee indicates a Monday to Friday 9 to 5 position, this isn't always the case. Other duties as assigned is really broad.
Executive Assistant to CEO in Edmonton:
"Getting The Dream Job."
CEO's are known to be driven, brilliant and demand excellence. You will need to be quick of mind and accurate, able to anticipate upcoming tasks to make their life easier, and intuitive, to maneuver in their corporate world. A legal background is extremely helpful in deciphering and managing documentation dealing with finance and contract management. Last but not least, ability to keep confidential information confidential is essential.
I would highly recommend getting some corporate and/or commercial legal experience which will put you in high demand for this position. Being organized and flexible will allow you to enjoy this position without the stress.
