    I’m a Bored Executive Assistant – Is It Time to Move On?

    EA with Brains asks:

    How to approach this situation?

    I work for a C-level executive who gives me tasks to do even though I’ve asked my executive if there’s anything I can do to assist with project-related work. I’m bored and not sure if it’s time to search for another job. I’m over 50 and may not get a match in salary (I’m highly compensated).

    Thank you!

    How Can I Retrieve Corrupt Documents/Drawers? – Ask an Admin

    Rose asks:

    The accounting firm I work for converted to digital document management ten years ago. For the most part, things have been going well; however, with the advent of cloud computing and third party IT support, we’ve run into a situation that I need help resolving.

    When a drawer goes corrupt there are only three resolutions – restore from backup, rebuild from paper documents, or a combination of both. The real problem for us comes when the paper is gone (because you converted it to a digital document, verified its integrity, digitally filed it, and shredded it), and the backup is corrupt.

    When I was in charge of backup, I kept a backup from three points throughout the year. These backups were destroyed according to our records retention policy. Backup is no longer in our control.

    What procedures do you have in place to ensure you can retrieve corrupt documents/drawers? 

    Thank you,
    Rose

    Preethi asks:

    Hi Fellow Admins,

    I am an administrative professional with over 10 years of experience. I have been an EA to the CEO or C-level executive for the last 5+ years. I am involved in corporate strategy; plan, organize and participate in Board and committee meetings, handle performance appraisal, review and edit HR and Board policies, organize events and town halls, etc.

    I have been doing this for a while now and wonder where to next? I like being an admin professional but also want growth in terms of role, designation, and pay. Is there a way to become a Chief of Staff? Most CoS in the corporate industry seem to be from operational or management background. Is there a way for an EA to become CoS?

    Thanks,
    Preethi

    Creating an Administrative Professional Protocol Manual – Ask an Admin

    Christine N. Asks:

    I’m finally getting around to creating my Administrative Professional Protocol Manual but I’m not sure if it should print everything out in a 3 ring binder (using dividers), using a One Note document, having it electronically in an online file or all of the above.  What do most administrative professionals prefer? 

    Thank you!
