Starting a new fully remote role Monday with a leader that has never had their own admin, let alone an exec assistant. Any suggestions for developing the relationship or training them to properly use an exec assistant?

Congrats on the new role!
It’s all about open communication.
Start with all basic preferences (diet, work hours, travel likes, car service, fav hotels, and personal boundaries. Each day is used as a learning and growing experience for both of you.
Ask for bullet point notes on their projects and teams so you can track easily and start to learn who is who. While working together, If something works, praise that and share feedback. If something doesn’t, flag it and speak up.
This is a great opp to provide your person you support with a really great experience.

Thank you

This is great because you get to mold the exec. Be sure to establish any boundaries you may have in addition to his/her boundaries.

Hi all. I’m making a career shift from graphic design to project management. I’ve spent the last 3 months interning as a PM at a small (<15 people) marketing agency; reported to our account manager, worked closely with the co-owners; exceeded expectations. I received a full-time offer: head of PM, reporting to one co-owner, on equal footing with my summer supervisor; $40k base. Looking at local industry standards, average sits around $75k base. Can I reasonably negotiate and ask for $60k base?

So, how we all doing? First few weeks of 2020 treating everyone alright?
