My day job
I got my first PA job in 2005 while I was living in California. It was not the best PA job, but it did teach me a lot. I quickly realised that I was pretty well suited to being a PA. So I decided I would continue along this career path and see where it went.
A few months after returning to South Africa I landed a much better PA job with a well known company. I am still working there now, but I am hoping in the next year or two that I will either find a more exciting PA job, win the lottery or quit PA work to become a full time writer.
I think the thing I most enjoy about being a PA is the organising aspect. I also like that a PA job can be very different depending on the environment and person you work for.
I definitely dont want to do this job forever, but until I get my dream job being a PA is paying the bills.
Question: What do you do for living? What is your dream job?
