Suggestions needed. I’m starting a new position remotely tomorrow. The onboarding has been seamless, but does anyone have any tools, tips or best practices for shining remotely? Thanks in advance.

Are you guys working remotely? How do you think this will affect us? Will executives find we are no longer essential? I’m happy we are WFH but am nervous our jobs will be the first cuts made.

Any EA or meeting coordinator roles available in Northeast NJ or NYC? I'm at a very small firm that only seems to be getting smaller at the moment.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can help my executive manage their inbox? I assume trashing spam emails and flagging important ones, but any other ideas in terms of folder management, etc?

Are there any ea roles hiring (mainly Chi but flex to elsewhere) with chill creatively minded environments? I am great at the work but can’t deal with the typical buttoned up seniority bootlicking LOL

Lately I have read a lot about automation and/or outsourcing of administrative work. Do you see this happening at your firm soon? How close?
