What do you love about your job? Which tasks to you enjoy doing, and is there something in them that you could make a career out of?

I was an exec asst. for about 8+ years. When I got laid off, I finished my degree (pushed myself to take 10 classes over 6 months). So I was in a similar place to you. I knew I didn’t want to go back into the work force as an assistant, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I realized the party of my job I loved was the planning, the travel and event planning, and that’s what I wanted to do.

Also, being an exec asst is a great career if you really enjoy what you do. My last job was at a company who really valued assistants and realized how much we did behind the scenes. So, if it’s what you enjoy doing stick with it, just find a company who realizes you work hard and that you do a lot more than make copies. Work your way up to work for a CEO or President of a good sized company and you can make some good money.

Finally, if you are able to without getting in trouble, perhaps remind the person who said that how much more you do than make coffee. They sound rude and disrespectful – but don’t let them get you down.
