Your career and pizza - Part 1

Submitted by Ethan

pizzaSo I know you’re asking, “What the heck does pizza have to do with my career?”

It’s a very valid question.

First, let me throw something out there right off the bat: I love pizza… always have, always will. I actually think my love of pizza is buried deep down in my genetic code passed down from my father but we’ll save that for a completely different blog post.

Second, these posts (click here for part 2) are the cornerstones of what our company philosophy is all about for ProAssisting. I know that we’ve blogged about a lot of different tactics, resources and tools that you can use as an assistant to succeed but we’ve yet to really lay out the reason “why” we believe that assisting is a great first step on any career path.

And that’s where pizza comes in… but before we get to that, let me share our beliefs about the working world based on our experiences.

We at ProAssisting believe that:

1. Most high ranking executives in every field started out as an assistant in some form or another as the first step on their career path (unless their the boss’s son or daughter).

2. Once you’ve built the trust and proved yourself as an assistant to your boss and the organization, you can get yourself “promoted from within” onto the career path of your choice.

3. A recent college grad trying to break into their chosen industry as an assistant could cut down the learning curve, build trust quickly and easily prove themselves IF they had the proper assistant training.

These beliefs, along with what we feel is a lack of “real world”, cost effective and comprehensive assistant training is why we created ProAssisting.

I know that this doesn’t answer the whole “So what’s my career got to do with pizza?” question but the suspense will be broken with part 2 (which is up and you can find HERE) so keep an eye out. In the mean time, just looking at that picture makes me want to go grab a slice. You?
