8 Traits of the Best Executive Assistants

What you need to know before writing your Executive Assistant Job Description

Writing a job description can be a tedious task. To do it well, you need to:

  • have a good grasp of the business and it’s culture;
  • awareness of the day-to-day job duties/responsibilities;
  • understanding of the education and experience requirements; and,
  • correctly identify the desired behavioural traits for candidates.

While the first three are relatively straightforward, understanding the mix of skills that separate the best from the rest is not as clean cut.
