Fishbowl has taught me that the most fulfilling day in a PA career is the day you leave... and the second most fulfilling is the day you learn the index-match function.

No joke, Index/Match is a game changer. Exponentially increased the automation of my workbooks by using it.

You have low standards if you think the second most fulfilling thing in your job is an index match

Hate to agree but if index match is second on the list, then yeah that's not good.

Did the NYSBA forget about re-takers? Is this a grave travesty and denial of Art 15 rights to those who are not being allowed to sit for the exam? What about their financial distress and their ability to retain and seek employment?

I have a friend who is very intelligent and from a top tier b-school but can't seem to gel well with the bosses at his company.

He is smart and can solve complex issues, but makes silly mistakes, or forgets things, he can't read people, their tones and act accordingly (if you know what I mean) which is why h is the kind of person who will be a favourite of the bosses.

Do you know such people? How can he make sure that he does well in his career and live up to his full potential?
