Following a good executive assistant blog is a great way to keep up to date with the rapidly changing world of business administration. Flicking through a collection of them on a regular basis is a great way to find helpful resources and tips and even get a healthy dose of comedic relief.

 

So, to help you out, there are five executive assistant blogs you should be following.

Musings of a High-Level Executive Assistant

As you might expect from a blog called Musings of a High-Level Executive Assistant, this executive assistant blog features first-hand advice from an executive assistant and “Jane of All Trades” with experience working with executives at some of the biggest companies in the world, including Sony, MGM, and Fox.

 

Whether you are just starting out in your career as a business administration assistant or are already rooted in your career, this blog is packed with articles that offer great advice.

Practically Perfect PA

Yes, it is very much a Mary Poppins reference, and if you want to carry off that same ‘ready for anything and practically perfect in every way’ administrative style that Ms. Poppins does then this blog is for you.

 

According to the blog’s owners, “Practically Perfect PA offers practical tips, honest advice and all kinds of career development support specifically for assistants.”

Levo

Aimed towards ambitious professionals in all roles and positions, Levo offers what they refer to as an “extensive tasting menu” of practical and inspiring career advice, tips, and perspectives.”

 

This website focusses on how technology can assistant the modern admin assistant and as  Levo puts it, “It’s no coincidence that our name is the Latin root of the word “elevate.” With technology, we can move forward together. You are no longer alone in this marathon we call a career.”

People Skills Decoded

Interpersonal communication skills are the bedrock of becoming a successful executive assistant. 

 

To that end, the aim of this rather specialized blog is to help executive assistants build the subtle people and communication skills necessary to excel in any work environment, with all types of personalities.

 

The blog itself is full of helpful hints and tip on how you can change you own behavior, and read and understand the behavior of others, to facilitate better communication.

Executive Leadership Support (ELS) Forum Blog

According to ELS, their blog is designed to “support the supporters,” and  “strives to improve the profile and professional lives of executive assistants by creating an educational outlet that inspires growth, collaboration, and community.”

 

This blog is packed with content that offers up to date perspectives on the latest administrative technologies, and it even presents profiles of successful administrative assistants in their “Executive Assistant of the Week” section.
