Like administrative assistants, executive assistants must demonstrate exceptional organizational, time management, and interpersonal skills. Executives are looking for candidates with impeccable written and oral abilities who can manage typical administrative software. Expect interviewers to ask how you would handle a variety of difficult situations, such as prioritizing multiple deadlines, working well in groups, and defusing irate people.
Do you have any children? How many children do you have? Will your children and their activities keep you from being able to work overtime or stay late as needed?
Scary... if an interviewer is willing to ask such blatantly discriminatory questions as: "Do you have any children..." RUN AWAY!!
Thank for you for your candid feedback! It is our intention to ensure that each interview experience is both productive and positive. And as such we have addressed your concerns accordingly.
This is literally an illegal question to ask...and caused me to nix eRelevance off my list of places I might want to interview with.
