Host said: How did you get your start doing executive assistant work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?
Do you need a particular educational background?
I believe typically, employers look for people who have had at least 5 years of administrative experience working with an executive/s and who have at least some college, if not a bachelors degree.
I began doing admin work when I was in the service, and then built upon my experience from that point, getting admin positions every time and then finally completed my bachelors degree in Business Administration, which helps with getting the higher salaries.
In my experience, the stability of my job history was a key factor in considering me for a position, such as tenure with each of my previous employers, and what I did for that employer on a daily basis that matched or at least complemented what I would be doing in the position I was applying for.
