Nailing the Interviewing Process
There are two types of EAs in this world, the ones that want to be one, and the ones that use it as a stepping stone to another role.Regardless of which you are and what your real plan is, there is a position you must take and present when interviewing for your next EA role.

Perfecting your Resume
Having a kick-ass resume is the most important element when it comes to applying for EA/PA roles. It’s the window to your career and the snapshot of your experience. But updating your resume is not just something that should be done when you’re looking for a role, it’s something that should be kept up to date and brilliant at all times. You never know when that dream role might come up that you need to apply for with a quick turnaround, and if your resume is out of date you can literally kiss that role goodbye. As a rule of thumb you should always have someone else review your resume, and someone who has expertise in the area, as sometimes there can be things that are glaringly obvious with your CV that you just cannot see and may be hindering you from getting your dream role.
