I’d wear a blazer

Better to be over dressed than under.

I’d say it depends on the type of firm. More niche tech firm I’d wear just a nice work shirt but go blazer if it’s a more formal company culture.

In this era of hybrid/remote WFH do you have a solid working relationship with the executive(s) you support? Most days I feel like I am non-existent to my SVP and his team of direct reports that I also provide support to. I actively make an effort to make small talk and try to connect in our 1:1’s/team offsites, but it is never reciprocated back. They say being an EA is a thankless job, but it’s disheartening to work for an exec/team that doesn’t make an effort to get to know their admin who

This refers to me explaining my work, or answering his feedback with reasons. Like we normally work. Rest of the teams says nothing in meetings, and accept anything he i saying, even when they know its wrong. They behave like scared dogs, but i refuse to act like that. Or should i?

Hi,
I'm about to resign from my current company as I found another role, relocating back to my home country, at a competitor company with a much higher role as I'll be assisting the CEO.

I really like my current boss, he's genuinely lovely and has been nothing but good to me. The empath in me is feeling sad at the idea of telling him as he has no idea it's coming.

Have any of you been in that situation and how did you handle it? I've never resigned
I'll tell them verbally then by email

I’m a female attorney and there is a small, but significant, subset of male lawyers who think it is totally acceptable to interrupt me at hearings. There was one who, right after I told him I was still speaking and before I could continue, asked me if I was done. It happened again today where I was literally in the middle of a sentence and he just started his own and kept going. I didn’t allow it and repeatedly stated, “Steve, I’m still speaking,” until he stopped. However, I’m real sick of it.

I feel like I made a big mistake accepting my EA role at my company. I was told I would not be doing personal errands often for the CEO, but now I am picking his daughter up from school and getting his designer curtains custom hemmed. Coworkers have included me in their projects, & he is now removing me from those bc “they take up too much of my time”, when they are the only tasks I enjoy bc I am actually adding value to the company. Idk what to do bc he “seems to be my way or the highway”.

I was recently offered a Zoom interview. The school had 10 interview slots for me to choose from. Three were one day this week and the rest are next week. I chose the first time slot available. Should I have waited until one of the last slots so I was fresher on their mind when choosing a candidate? I am just sitting here stressing out until I here something. Also, do interviewers still appreciate a hand written thank you for the interview?

We have a new client that is... a lot. Me and another Latina woman are working on the team, and the client first said how nice it was to have a diverse team (she's white).

It's honestly embarrassing but how can you tell a client they're doing too much?
