So, I've been applying for reception/admin/PA jobs all year, and hardly had a call back for a job interview, until today.
One of the jobs I applied for was as a PA role, which I had a phone interview for this avo, and am having an interview in person on Thursday.
At the end of the phone interview, I asked if he thinks I would suit the role, and he said I as the best person hes spoken to today, he said that I've pretty much got the job at the end of the phone interview, he just needs to see how I dress professionally and give me my tax forms & super forms in person.
The role pays well, like $20k per year more than I've done in previous admin/reception jobs, involves the usual diary management, taking client phone calls, bookings meetings, booking travel/taxis/hotels. The bonus is I get to work from home as he's out of the office all day and directly contacts me via email & phone calls, so I'd be getting my own work phone & Ipad for work.
But one thing that I'm a bit iffy about it that when my boss travels interstate, I must travel with him as it's a major requirement of the PA role, is this standard in PA roles?.
I just get the feelings there a catch to the job or something, I just have an odd feeling about the travel part of it. I don't know, maybe I just feel this way because every job I've had (apart from working for my parents company), I've had dodgy or sleazy bosses & I'm worried this will be the same.
Do you think this job is too good to be true in a way or am I being over paranoid?
