Picture this, you’re a Secretary, Administrator or even a Personal Assistant but you feel ready to take the leap to Executive Assistant. EAs generally earn more than PAs and carry more responsibility and have an influencing role in an organisation. In some companies, PAs are on a par with Secretaries regarding pay and conditions whereas EA is more senior and is often seen as stepping stone to a managerial career. You know this is what you want.

What can you do over the next 6 months + to prepare yourself for taking the next step in your career?
