Good versus evil, the little guy taking on "the Man....", and so on.

    #36 Barbara you are 100% correct. Perceptions ARE everything as they reveal a LOT about an individual.

    "This is very unlike me;"

    Not a chance. Your perceptions and comments reveal what you are like.

    ".....people don't see this side of me often."

    Then, this is a great discussion so that, for a change, people have a chance to see who EXACTLY who you are.

    One thing I cover in my Competency Based Behavioural Interviewing programme is the relationship between perception and bias. For example, I highlight the fact that it is not unusual for interviewers with deep-seated racial biases to perceive educated and accomplished Black professionals as "arrogant". "Over-confident" is another term that is a definite red flag. As a result of these biases, many qualified Black candidates get screened out. I caution the interviewers I train to be aware of this dynamic when they participate in panel interviews. I advise them to ensure that racial biases don't derail the selection process by being on the look-out for these adjectives when their fellow interviewers use them to describe Black candidates. (There is also a list of adjectives that reveal sexism.)

    Your perceptions are revealing a LOT about you. I would not be surprised for you to again edit your adjective and use the word "uppity". I have nothing further to say about this matter but keep talking so that people really have a chance to see who you are.

    #24 I have no hang ups, Anne. You missed my point because you were offended when I called your statement condescending. Admit it...it was. If you would prefer arrogant, I'll call your statement arrogant. It matters none to me. My point in calling you out on your ridiculous observation was that you belittled the role of an EA. Consider it a growth opportunity for you.

    It's obvious that the qualifications one looks for when recruiting an assistant versus a CxO will have no comparisons. Regardless of the role being recruited, the hiring manager will have certain attributes to consider. One bucket 'o attributes for an EA, another for managerial, another for executive level.

    Perceptions are everything, Anne. I would think that one who toots their own horn about having such vast expertise in training executives how to interview would have a better handle on perception.

    I would be remiss if I didn't add that in my long (very long, 'cause I'm also a geezer), I have known many an EA that can intellectually "dance circles" around executives; including MBAs who think themselves superior to those that haven't had the opportunity to further their education.

    @Jerry Fletcher, I apologize for my firestorm in your buzz. This is very unlike me; and people don't see this side of me often. I have very little patience for elitists who display their arrogance so loudly and proudly.

    #31 Thanks Phil, Like I said in the post Marty was calling to let off steam. I just put her comments out there for reaction. She had an assistant for years that was at the acme of that sort of job and truly enjoyed it. Family matters took her away and hence the search. I find it interesting that the initial reactions were to her unbridled distaste. Only one younger person (I think) chimed in and I think we agreed to disagree. That, to me is a partial victory. At least we can talk about the differences.

    Interesting post, Jerry. I don't thing there is anything wrong with being as demanding as hell about who you hire. But like @Phil Friedman, I am not at all surprised at the scarcity of people who are A) at all literate and B) have enough smarts to understand that building a relationship is going to set you apart from all the slugs out there. And there are a lot of slugs, as we all know.

    #28 Jerry, the tagline I use in much of my marketing materials has, for years been, "...because experience always matters." It is an eternal verity that only the instant Whiz Kids who ply the waters of the internet deny. Mainly because they don't have it. But also because, not having it, they cannot appreciate the value of having it and, instead, proudly subscribe to the maxim uttered not too long ago in print by celebrity entrepreneur, Richard Branson, to "fake it until you make it."

    Anyway, I am a little surprised at your friend's reaction. What mountain top has she been living on? Not that her complaints aren't valid. For they are. But that she is taken aback by what she faced. After all, it's all part of the social media circus. Where nearly everyone believes that self-ascribed expertise and self-certified skills are the order of the day. Where so many consider that being paid so little constitutes being gainfully employed. And where a significant number obviously believe that the only qualification for being an "entrepreneur" is to be unemployed.

    Yes, it's Friday and my day to see how many people I can piss off. :-) @Jim Murray and I just completed an installment of "He Said He Said" that touches on some of your points. Great post, Jerry. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Cheers!

    #14 Anne, I just reported. I am not an HR professional nor is Marty. Both of us come from the school of win your spurs by learning from experts. As a professional well versed in both on and off-line marketing I am certain the advice proffered by the candidates was bogus and not based on experience. The assumptions that anyone older than 50 doesn't know or understand social media is the problem. The truth is, in my humble opinion, that most advice from anyone, regardless of age, that has not served a decent apprenticeship in the arena they claim expertise in is blowing smoke.

    #23 That is YOU reading into a statement that what wasn't there based on your own hang-ups. The reality is that the qualifications for an assistant are not the same as the qualifications for a CEO. If you can't see that, I leave you to your perceptions. Enjoy the rest of your day.

    If interviewing and how to write a resume isn't taught in high school, it should be. I can't imagine why anyone applying for an office job would think it's ok to walk in chewing gum and dressing inappropriately. These people need coaching, desperately. Personally, I enjoyed interviewing. I seemed to be pretty good at it. Much like testing...I suppose I like the challenge.

    #19 Condescending? Really? Since when is stating a fact condescending? Please break it down for me. It's interesting that when someone comes in and posts anything other than "great post, I agree", the personal attacks begin.

    Based on the fact that she seems to be interviewing a lot of people who are just starting out in their career, some of her expectations are reasonable but others seem to be very high. One WOULD think that she was hiring the CEO.

    Perhaps she should have been looking for an executive assistant with years of corporate experience. Of course, she would have to be prepared to compensate them as such.

    #15 Interviewing is a skill, like any other skill. It doesn't come naturally for everyone. Both the interviewer and interviewee need practice and sometimes training in order to feel comfortable. Just because someone is a highly successful executive or enterpreneur it doesn't mean they've mastered interviwing skills. I would be curious to see what questions your friend is asking. If she is ever interviewing again. I would be happy to take a look at her questions GRATIS and give her some feedback. Let me know.

    Thank you @Jerry Fletcher for sharing your interesting post, an insightful storytelling.Before your friend starts searching for the perfect candidate, she needs to spend some time thinking about the job and how to match successfully with her own needs. Think about previous people who have held the position and what skills, knowledge, and personal qualities made them successful or unsuccessful, and what factors contribute to being a good candidate for the job. Make a list of these factors and make sure that everyone involved with the selection process agrees that this is the criteria they are looking for.
