@Kings7911:  i’m an executive assistant. easy peasy, lemon squeezy. one of the easiest jobs i’ve ever had.

depends on how big the meetings you’ll have to arrange are, and how complicated the travel. for me none of that was hard, because i’ve been to countries that required Visas and knew how to handle that. conference arrangement was always fun for me, too.

it’s really just all about organization and communication skills. if you’re smart and motivated and have those things, they can train you on any of the day to day tasks.

@Kings7911:  I was an EA for a few years back in 2001-2003. I looooved it! Travel plans are a breeze. Planning meetings is prob my most hated things bc I hated having to coordinate a bunch of people’s schedules. As with most jobs, who you work for makes all the difference. 

As for the interview, smile a lot. Ask for a moment to consider answers if you need it. Just bring your most personable self. I am a people person and have learned how to make people like me. Ask questions- I’m really good at asking personal questions and putting people at ease.
