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

December 2013
"Follow Your Own Gut Feeling."
Executive Assistant:
Do not listen to what your parents think you should do or where you should attend school. Go with your heart. Follow your dream. Do what YOU think is best for you. You will succeed by following what you desire the most.

Executive Assistant:
Pros: This job is perfect for growth. I am given a lot of responsibility and leeway. I have the opportunity to research new things and the experience is invaluable.
Cons: The job can be very boring, and the office isn't great. But it's great to have a job, and everyone has to start at the bottom.

Learn as much as you can.

"Don't Work For A Local Non-Profit Organization."
Executive Assistant:
Major non profit companies might be better off salary wise. Don't work for a local non profit, it's nothing but worrying about having a job from week to week and whether or not you will be paid for the week you just worked.
