It’s OK, even more than OK, to start out as an assistant.

Executive Assistant. Administrative Assistant. Temp. These titles send shudders through some recent college graduates, who often think, “Why did I go to college to be someone’s assistant, or to be a temp?” Here’s the thing: In many industries, these assistant/temp jobs are the EXACT JOB you need to take if you want to break in to that industry. If that’s the case, just think of this job, crappy title and all, as your big opportunity (which it is), rather than a failure (which it isn’t).
