When you think of a personal assistant, it’s hard not to think of a fresh-faced recent graduate being berated by an egomaniacal boss. That’s how it is in movies and TV shows, at least. Think of the perpetually mistreated Lloyd from Entourage or The Devil Wears Prada. Those poor (yet fictitious) souls.In truth, being a personal assistant isn’t nearly that bad, and, many personal assistants reported being happier with their job than people in other industries. Take away the verbal abuse stereotypes, and you’re left with someone who has to solve problems on the fly while learning the inner structure of an organization.
