Executives count on administrative assistants to keep busy schedules and company activities as clear and easy-to-navigate as possible. Expect questions about your organizational, time management, and communication skills. Many of these questions will be story-based, so come ready to explain a time when you successfully juggled multiple deadlines or were able to handle difficult customers at the front desk. Though these interviews focus primarily on soft skills, you may be asked to answer a question about your ability to use basic administrative software.
describe a time when you failed at something and had to turn it into a success
hard one to tackle if not prepared but try to think of something where you turned a failure into a positive learning experience
That was probably a good response to turn a failure in a learning experience. I think I would say that every time I fail (and this is a true story) I write down this mistake and I put in my list to read before I start my day. To call my attention.
