"It doesn't have a routine. It never gets boring. I'm very independent and I love learning with challenges. As an executive assistant there is a lot to learn everyday. I'm surrounded by business people that give everyday a new lesson about life and career. Organizing and solving problems is an executive is an everyday responsibility. You must to have passion for making people's life better, easier and simpler. It's amazing how much we can improve having information and network."

Executive Assistant at Vanderbloemen Search Group
in Houston, TX

"Having held various administrative jobs in the past, it was always difficult for me to believe that it would ever be something I could make a career out of. Working at Vanderbloemen Search Group has been challenging and inspiring in ways I never thought possible. Not only have I improved in my skills and everyday work, I have also grown as a person through my friendships and working relationships with colleagues. The job can be stressful and unpredictable at times, but after a particularly stressful week (and sometimes for no reason), my employer will send me a nice email describing how he is thankful for the work that I do. Feeling that my role holds actual value and that I am irreplaceable make all the difference."

Executive Assistant at Ericsson
in Pleasanton, CA

"I loved my job. I came to work every day with a smile. I wore many hats. I was hired as an EA but was also office manager, facility coordinator and space planner. This was in addition to my everyday work of supporting the VP and his direct reports and the customer unit. There was nothing I hated about my job and not that many people can say that."

Executive Assistant at Preload
in Hauppauge, NY

"I love being involved with every aspect of the company. I work with Sales, then Estimating, I handle the bids and then follow through construction. I do the duties of management but have never been given a raise or bonus. Appreciation for my efforts and extra work load and long hours goes unnoticed."

"I love being an Executive Assistant and helping people. What I didn't like is this VP didn't see me as a partner but more as a "minion". It was not a positive experience and when offered to stay on, I turned it down."
