I once held the position of Accounts Payable Coordinator for a major corporation, where I was the AP coordinator for 5 other locations throughout the United States as well as the location I worked in. There were many days I would received assistance requests from two or more locations at once, while simultaneously working on month end deadlines for my branch location. I would have to weigh the deadline dates with the urgency of the requests, and prioritize accordingly. If needed, I would delegate some of the work to my administrative assistant so that all priority work was completed that day in a timely and accurate manner, and others were completed within 24 hours.
I follow peace with all men. My interest is to get the work done and i avoid taking the misbehavior of others personal. Overall, I endeavor to be humble always but i will walk away if there is a culture of mistreating employees.
It wasn't really difficult. If you know the cookie cutter questions, you can easily walk through this interview. I have added a question when I interview people: What is your passion when it comes to business analysis? Why do you want to be one?
Understanding a part of the business well enough to come up with effective solutions that require minimal effort and then getting the required buy-in from other people in the organization. The political dynamics are an important reason for doing the job.
The economy doesn't support small businesses right now and I need to return to corporate in order to make a living. Because I like being the support that help the ones around me succeed, I am looking for an Executive Assistant position. I like knowing that other people can pay attention to making money while I keep the world around them running smoothly.
