8 Things You Should Know Before Becoming a PA in London

1. Do you know how to get
a PA career in London
? There is no actual job description for a PA job
in London, so you have to be ready to do whatever needs to be done. I check
emails, answer phone calls, and update your calendar, but I do much more than
that. I work for a stand-up comedian and actress, so I might be in the way with
my client when she has shows in various cities and countries. If you're filming
for your TV show, I have to go to the set.


2. There is no such thing as a program established in this
work
. There are some weeks that I wake up at 6 am and go to bed at one in the
morning because we are in London doing press and we have to be on set, and then
also have things for the night. But when I'm back in Atlanta or Los Angeles,
there are days where there is a lot to do, and there are days when there is not
much to do and I'm done at 5 in the afternoon. Many times, my work is very
independent. She will give me a deadline when she wants something done, or I
will be given a task and I think deadlines when I want to do things. As with
planning an event or something, I know that I have a period of two weeks for
when I have to have everything in secret and taken care of, so I put in the
number of hours I have to do that.

 

3. Learn to prioritize based on your client's priorities. It
is not yours. There are certain things I know that would make her happy if she
does, even if she does not seem to press. I had a couple of Manolo Blahniks who
needed to be repaired and asked me to take them to repair the next time I left.
I was working on another project she wanted to do, but there was only so much I
could do with that project in a day, so I repaired my shoes because I knew I
could do it right away and make her happy while working on other things.

 

4. You can have a personal life, but you will have to plan
it around the person for whom you work
. Dating can be difficult because
sometimes you could be in five different cities within seven days for this job.
You miss certain things, but you have to make sacrifices for what you perceive
as the work of your dreams. When you work a job 9 to 5, five days a week, you
know that you will have your evenings and weekends off. But in this position,
you have to make sure that everything is fine and set in place for your client
before making your own plans. My birthday is coming up and I have to make sure
that your schedule allows me to be out for my birthday. She is very open to me
to have my own life; it’s more about time and warning.

 

5. If your boss is having a bad day and takes it out on you,
do not take it personally
. When you are working in a corporate environment, you
kind of buffer and do not necessarily get into the personal life of your boss.
But in this work, you are dealing with someone at all hours of the day, and at
any given time, there may be something going on. Your frustration may not be
addressed to you, but you are probably the person who happens to be there. I
remember once, we were going to an event and she was having a costume theme and
we were running late, and I just let her breathe. After a while, she said she
felt it if it looked like she was being moody or grumpy towards me, who was
stressed out by the event.

 

6. Some people will assume that you are uneducated, even if
it is quite the opposite
. With social networks, you can be whatever you want to
be for the world. And so there are people out there who have no background in
anything, but they dress well and call themselves a stylist. Or someone gets coffee
from someone once and they call themselves a PA. I think a lot of people
perceive PA in London as well. But I have a master's degree in education and a
bachelor's degree in journalism and public relations. Having that education is
always good as an option to appeal and that makes you more believable.

 

7. If you do not want to be miserable, find someone who
values ??the work you do
. I've heard of people working with celebrities who are
rude and rude and have an attitude of "you're just the help". But in
all the interviews my client has done or with any of the people who talk about
me, he says that his life does not work without me. If you work with someone
who acts like you're helping, that's not a good fit for you, unless you just
want to be the help. You need to find someone who suits your personality and
matches your character level, otherwise it will not work.

 

8. When
we are at home and leave, we can talk about personal things and talk among
friends as friends
, but there is always a level of respect. At the end of the
day, this is my employer. But I would definitely say that in the eyes of the
public, it is always ensure that there is a professional business relationship.
One thing I never do is drink when we go out.
