I am a "senior executive assistant" to the president of a regional office of a large company (10,000 employees - our office has 80 employees). He is not the CEO, and there are regional managers between him and the CEO. There are many presidents of about 20 regional offices.
I am now being interviewed for "executive assistant" to the CEO (big cheese) of a smaller (50-200 employees) non profit. I will be the CEO's assistant and also handling meetings for the Board of Directors etc.
I am 55 and hope to stay in my next job until I retire. BUT, if I have to find another job at some point, how worried should I be that I am going from senior EA to just plain old EA?
This is in Washington, DC. Salary and benefits and duties are about the same for both jobs except I will now be dealing directly with the Board of Directors.
