“Be the kind of person that people would like to work with.”
Being an executive assistant means having to deal with everyone in the organization, from the bosses down to the rank and file employees. It is often a challenging job that requires much patience and compassion for all the people to be encountered in order to get the job done. They act as a bridge between their bosses and the rest of the company, often making them have to deliver bad news to everyone else. Although inevitable, influencing others is the best way to make their jobs and everyone else’s easier.
