Q: What is it like working as an Executive Administrative Assistant?

"Not as easy as it looks!"
Executive Administrative Assistant:
This field is not something you can just fall into and excel at. You need to be tech savvy, discreet, a mind reader, willing to do things others don't want to, and VERY organized. You take a lot of crap from people when things go wrong and you get the blame even when its not your fault.

"Three ways to excel as an admin."
Executive Administrative Assistant:
Make sure your role is clearly defined, administrative work can include many kinds of tasks, responsibilities and industries, so make sure you know all the tasks you will be expected to master. Be meticulous and detail-oriented! Your boss will be expecting you to have correct answers on hand, don't be the admin who can never find anything... Be the admin that knows where everything is, and the one that can answer any question by looking it up within their system. And oh yea have a great referential filing system - use something like Evernote, or OneNote that will allow you to search and organize these ideas and info. In order to prevent over-promising or over-booking - keep a running task list, and let everyone know that if they want you to do something, it will need to go on the list, and if they want it done immediately, they will need to show you which tasks can wait while you re-priortize to handle the urgent ones.

"Learning."
Executive Administrative Assistant:
Continue learning skills and interpersonal every chance you get. If you don't know how to do something, search on the web and learn that skill. It is better for you and those your work with and for. Never say I don't know how, say if someone will show me how I will do it and do it gladly.

"Company Infastructure."
Executive Administrative Assistant:
When I first started, I wish that there had been more detail in explaining what the company actually did, instead of giving a vague list of products that we make and not explaining how they impacted the world. Also, be cautious that as your job progresses, added responsibilities are not added without being compensated for them.
September 2016
"Underpaid."
Executive Administrative Assistant:
None as of now but will definitely tell after getting something.
October 2016
Executive Administrative Assistant:
Pros: Exceeding expectations. I am at my happiest when I am working. Job satisfaction is extremely important and is achieved by providing positive customer service, working in a fast paced environment, supportive colleagues and recognised diligence with the ability to develop a career for the long term.
Cons: Not being kept busy/having enough to do.
