Executive Secretary Interview Questions

"As an executive secretary, you are expected to be able to handle the schedules for high-level executives, prepare statistical reports, and handle information requests, all in a professional manner. In an interview context, employers will want to get a feel for your personality, your experience in working in a corporate setting, and what you believe that you can bring to the company. You may have to role-play a situation where you must deal with a difficult person or diffuse a situation. To ace your interview, bring a positive attitude and emphasize that you are willing to go above and beyond to assist others."
