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.
The usual questions: Why am I looking for another opportunity? Why Vanderbilt? What was a challenging workplace situation and how did I resolve the matter?
I answered frankly. No spin.
