Relocation Hello all, I am a current resident of Maryland. I eagerly want to relocate, but of course it is hard to secure housing in another state when you don't have a job and it is equally hard if not harder to find a job in another state when you are not already located or residing in that locality. However, I am determined and have been persistently completing applications/distributing my resume. I have four (4) states that I would not mind relocating to and whichever I can secure a job in first will be where I am heading. My four preferences are Nevada, Arizona, Florida and Texas. Does anyone have any ideas, information, or resources to assist me in this transition? Thanks in advance! Monica Harris 4/19/2017 9:08:41 AM3
Innovationn Ideas for the Core Admin Role Accountability, Innovation, Integrity, Teamwork & Winning Mindset - those are the five corporate values of my company. Each year when we draft our performance evaluation goals we are asked to choose one of the corporate goals as a core competency and strive to make some measurable and identifiable improvement in that area. This year I choose "Innovation". After discussing my annual goals with my VP, to gather his input on how he thinks I could show improvement in this area he suggests that I focus on my own job functions (it doesn't have to be a new idea or process). So I humbly reach out to this vast network of intelligence and experience and ask: "How are you innovative in your administrative roles?" I struggle here because most of my daily duties are not manual processes, as it once was back in the day. In today's administrative role most functions are handled with productivity tools: email & meetings (Outlook, Web-Ex, Co... Anonymous 3/13/2014 2:15:39 PM6

Returning to Job Market and Looking for Help I'm re-entering the job market in the Northern Virginia area and need some help. With my youngest in college, and the economy in a mess, it seems like a good time to find a job in the Admin/Exe. Assistant field.

Position needed as Admin or Exec Assistant Please Hello everyone. I was recently laid off and am driving myself insane on the job boards with deciphering if the jobs I just applied to are real or just gathering spam information. For the last 2 months, whenever I apply for a position off of Careerbuilder or Craigslist I get a phenomenal number of spam soliciting for continuing education and never a reply from the company applied to. If you know of any work in the Los Angeles/San Fernando Valley location, feel free to comment or send me an email. Thanks so very much. Kelly Watkins 2/5/2009 12:07:11 PM11

Arizona Jobs? I want to relocate to Arizona. I am single, and it would mean uprooting my entire life. My family lives in AZ and I would like to be there. I have had resumes on Monster and Careerbuilder, I have interviewed for a job in Phoenix, but so far nothing. I am considering how to do this, including an unpaid leave of absence from my current job to look in Phoenix for a period of 30 days. Does anyone have any support/suggestions? I am the executive assistant to the CEO of a nonprofit. I hate to take anything less than what I currently have, again, I am single and have to support myself. I am also 55 years old; and I feel like I have to do this now or never. Anonymous 6/13/2008 3:17:02 PM12
Annual Increase How do you know how much your raise should be with a company? As you know what we do for our managers is above and beyond what was originally listed on the job description. I really enjoy what I do and who I work for. It has been stated that I do not fit the "Benchmark" of our organization so my boss does not completely understand what is fair and he uses his best judgement when giving me an increase each year. This will be my third year here and I've been in this field for 10 years. I work directly for the President and handle a lot of material while wearing several hats. What information can I give him as far as information and facts....as he is a fact finder. Thank you, M.G. Melissa Green 6/12/2008 9:44:13 AM9
