Hey guys and gals,
I've been working for a company for 2.5 years as an Admin Assistant for the Executive Vice President of my company. There is a position available for another Admin Asst position which pays maybe 3-5k more than my position now. Should I ask him to put in a good word for me or tell him that I have applied for the position because I am seeking more responsible and there is a pay increase? Thanks!
Can you answer the question as well as compare the job duties of the vice president versus chief assistant? I am not sure what they are supposed to do or what the differences are in their duties. Thanks so much.
So i think my professor lost my final. He says he doesn't have it and acts as if I wasn't there for it. He won't talk to me anymore. I went to his boss and he ended up giving me the run around as well. I went to the assistant Vice President or some crap and now it feels like she's giving me the run around. I'm going to owe money if he really lost my final and I fail because of it. So what do you do in this situation?
Wow thank you for the great information. I kind of figured but wasn't sure that he and the school could be in big trouble for something like this bit I wasn't sure. I'm trying to prove to them that I'm not letting this go. I've made it clear to everyone that I've talked to that if they don't answer my question which is "where is my final" that I'm going to go over their head to the next person and so far I've done that everytime.
It worries me because just like you said the school could be liable as well so I'm certain they may want to try and ignore this and hope it goes away or try to cover it up. I'm finding it hard to find anyone who cares though.
Where I stand right now is the assistant Vice President is supposedly having a meeting with my professor and his boss (both of which I've tried working with but blew me off). I should know the outcome of that after this week and I'm fully expecting bad news of some kind and
Thanks again and I'm gonna take your advice on this and find someone not in the teaching field to help me. I'm 30 by the way so I won't be getting my parents involved lol.
I've been working in this office for almost a year now and no girl has ever even acknowledged my presence. Now Suddenly, I get promoted assistant vice president and now the ladies in the office keep asking me out and giving me their phone numbers.. should I take advantage of this? or should I ignore them like they have been ignoring for the passed year?
I am interviewing for a job as an administrative assistant to a female vice president of an advertising firm. I am hoping this will get my foot in the door and wanted to wear something more colorful to show her I had a sense of style. I bought this suit
I really do not like the shoes they had with it and was thinking of wearing a chunky heel with more of a square toe without hose though I was considering wearing black knee highs. I was also thinking of wearing some gold hoop earrings to go with the dress. I am hoping to go with an image that will show my creativity as this is my first foray into advertising. Is this the right approach? What would you recommend?
My BF is being offered the #2 spot in a company serving under the VP of Corporate Affairs. He was asked to come up with a job title for his position, what would be the appropriate job title?
Please help, the big wigs of the company board are meeting next week and we need something to present on the table.
If you were to get demoted in your job, would you suspect the person in the adminstrative office may have something to do with your demotion. Perhaps, did not do anything to stop the demotion. By the way, the person in the admin job is assistant to the vice president and president. The vice president and president are directly your boss.
I've been working for my company for over 3 months and I was offered a promotion 2 days ago, but I had to decline it. It was an assistant position to the president of the company (sorta like secretary.)
The hourly pay is quite humble, but the responsibilities and tasks are too much for me to handle. I truthfully told them I don't think I have the skills to complete the tasks, and although they told me they respect my decision and they wouldn't think badly of me...I'm starting to believe that wasn't too true.
The vice-president of the company is still being polite and responsive towards me, but my president has been rather quite towards me. He doesn't even make eye contact whenever I speak to him.
When I spoke to the office coordinator this afternoon, she told me the president was upset that I didn't take his offer. That he really wanted me.
Now I'm worried I might've made a mistake & might let me go because the company won't find me useful anymore. How do I shake this feeling off?
What should Barack Obama be able to fix when he becomes president?
How quickly should he be able to fix it?
Do you think he is the best president for this job or would someone else be better at it?
I would really like to be an office assistant since I love doing office work, running errands, etc. I wanted to know what you would have to study in college to become one. I'm probably going to major in Business and minor in English Lit.
I found a lot of answers regarding being assistants for law firms and such. Is there a reason why that is so popular?
What type of companies would need office assistants? I would like to work for a slightly bigger one, not the ones with 4 people and they all wear t-shirts to work.
It's for my High School's Drama Club and we just need a little thing for each new officer saying what there job is, what they're responsible for, and more.
I took this job about 6 months ago with the promise that I was part of this great reorganization of this company. It sounded like my dream position & was what I wanted & close to my family. About 1 month in the person who hired me was no longer my boss & someone new came on. 2 months later there is a new vice president of the entire operation. I was told I was one of the last steps of the restructure, but maybe not. Then this new VP starts changing everything. My position that was just created is practically meaningless now. He interrupted me during a presentation I was giving because he didn't like my "tone." My boss defended me thankfully. A few months go by & he decides that anyone in my position can no longer attend meetings. My supervisor must go on her own & I must stay at my desk in case anyone needs us. Ok so now I don't know why they provided us with cell phones & laptops. He only made this announcement AFTER kicking me & a few others out of a meeting. Finally he announces there will be a new structure to the company. After they just restructured! So now here I am unhappy in my job due to a number of things: 1 VP makes me feel physically uncomfortable. 2 I don't feel like I have job security anymore. 3 I no longer am doing my job. I am now just an assistant to my supervisor. I update spreadsheets & schedule meetings for her. 4 I am beyond disappointed because I thought I came in here to bring fresh ideas but I have been thoroughly shut out before my plans even take effect (first 1 doesn't even happen until July). 5 On top of all this the people left after the 1st restructure absolutely hate me & my team. They feel threatened & constantly try to undermine us by creating rumors & telling it to their boss who then tells the VP. I've been here for 6 months & really hate it but I don't want to be a job hopper. I was at my old job for about 2 years but switched positions & came here. I turned down other job offers! Should I start applying after 6 months here?
I'm doing some research for a paper and I need to know the different types of jobs to do with criminals, I know there are the obvious police officers, private investigators, undercover police officers but what are the less known jobs out there? And what do they do?
It is an underwriting insurance company. i have no prior experience in that field. i am applying for an administrative assistant position for 3 vice presidents. i have already received info on all of the companys benefits and job description. i was told when you meet with the president he likes people who ask questions. i am worried though i will be asking questions that i will already received knowledge from due to the fact he will be the 6th person i will have met with in the interviewing process.
I am thinking about working for a magazine company when I'm older. What are all of the different types of jobs you can get there? Especially jobs that have to do with design and leadership, because those are my two talents.
Thanks in advance!
What to put in a cover letter for office administrative assistant?
I'm looking for jobs in this field. I've only worked in customer service, telemarketing/sales positions and one fast food a long time ago. So i have no direct experience in the field i'm interested in, how can i catch the employers eye? And please use some examples if you can thank you.
In big chain companies they often have people whose job is choosing which people to fire in order to cut expenses. What's the term for that?
For example, a photographer's assistant or a freelance video editor doing work from home?
I feel really out of place putting everything on that would usually qualify for a job as a vice president of a fortune 500 company, and going to a random coffee shop in the city.
I also would have four years of experience as a PR assistant from a work study program that I am involved in and about 3 or 4 creditable sources for letters of recommendation. I just want to know if this path would bring me to success because I really do love PR.
I am currently looking for a new job. What are some other titles for admin assistant besides secretary or clerk?
