How to be a Good Assistant
"At the very beginning, I would get overwhelmed by a lot of things, so I always had to sneak away to just calm myself down and then come back to set. I've learned how to navigate those potential situations and get on top of problem-solving faster."
"I think it's getting to know your boss and trying to not just keep it on a boss/assistant relationship, where it’s very cut and dry. You want to get to know them as a person and understand what they like and don't like and what they react well to. Then, you can really be the best assistant possible."
"Someone who has a positive attitude and is willing to work hard and ask questions, but at the right time. It’s important to be proactive and troubleshoot instead of just waiting for someone to tell you what to do next. Someone that's just willing to learn at the end of the day."
"Being proactive and reliable but beyond that, I'm always impressed by people who aren't intimidated by the fact that they're in a junior position."
"Work hard, don’t complain, and be up for doing whatever needs to be done. Elizabeth has been in Fiji this past week for a job, and that’s an 18-hour time difference. So if I have to respond to texts at 3 AM you just gotta do what you gotta do."
"Hard work, problem-solving, learning and listening, listening, listening, and asking questions. However, if you can easily google it, don’t ask it. So proactivity and figuring things out on your own is important and surprisingly lacking today."
"You have to be so organized, and smart, and know how to get everywhere in London. Just being on top of it."
"Be organized, professional, and friendly."
