I need an edge on additional candidates for Executive Assistant jobs and wanting to show them the type of work I have done
I just graduated with a public relations degree. I have no experience so no one wants to hire me for a pr specialist, etc. however i have been getting calls for executive assistant jobs.
i don't really know what all that kind of job entails so does anyone know if my pr skills would come in handy? or just give me some heads up on what i would be doing as an executive assistant?
I have applied for a job as an executive assistant and I need some help as to how much my salary will be.
I am updating my resume and need a more creative job title for my most recent job. I was an executive assistant for a venture capitalist. I would do everything an assistant would do, but I would also plan political and philanthropic fundraisers, wire millions of dollars monthly for different investments, track all investments, pay all bills including staff for three residences, manage finances for thoroughbred race horses. I feel like the title Executive Assistant just doesn't match the responsibility and trust placed in me. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I am a 30 year old married woman. I recently got a job offer as a executive assistant to CFO of a big Japanese Multi-national company. This company has a very conservative culture. I am not sure what I can expect from this position apart from what the recruiter already told me.
I applied for this job as it required use of my bilingual skills. However, the job description also says "schedule meetings / arrange catering / answer phones" etc apart from using my bilingual skills to interact with clients.
Will I end up serving coffee, taking phone calls and being assumed to be a subservient bimbo? What can I expect? The tone of the recruiter sounded like I would be more of a "secretary" and less of an "assistant".
Any/all advise would be appreciated.
Also, do you know if there is a generic dress code for Executive Assistants?
In one of my previous companys (I was working there as a translator), the secretary had to wear either skirts and tops or full length dress - no shirt/trousers.
I think I did not clarify, this position is not in Japan. This position is in US but for a Japanese company.

I'm finishing up school, and I have taken a job being an executive assistant to the CEO of a forune 500 company. It's high stress, and very technical as it is a telecommunications company. I don't fully understand all the lingo yet, and my bost (who i'm supposed to be helping) is too busy to teach me what to do on a daily basis. I can do everything that he's asked me to do, but there's got to be more than just waiting, right? What should I be doing to help him during the time frames when I don't have anything else to do? Please help! I want to be able to do this well!!
