The Pixley Bouquet from Bloom That
One of the first things I tell first year associates is to not forget two things: First, don’t forget to close out your time each week lest you get a scathing email from the powers that be. Second, don’t forget your assistant on their birthday or on administrative professional / staff appreciation day. Assistants are an invaluable resource and for the first year (maybe even longer) they tend to know more than a first year associate. Small gestures to show your appreciation will go a long way.
To all the administrative assistants and legal staff, thank you for all you do and happy administrative professionals day.
