There is never a shortage of people willing to take entry-level positions, and as previously mentioned, exceptionally good PAs, "gofers" or runners, assistants, receptionists, mailroom workers, pages and apprentices are extremely rare. Being one of the good ones is the very best way to differentiate yourself from your competition. Walking into your new job, prepared and knowing what's expected of you, will not only impress your new employers, it will be a great relief to them as well. Add the right attitude and a large dose of extra effort, giving them more than what's required or expected, and you'll soon be totally indispensable and someone they will definitely want to keep around.
This chapter will allow you to be one step ahead by knowing what to expect when you get your first job.
