Now that the entertainment world is caught in the Streaming Wars, let’s give credit to the content provider that fired the opening salvo.
You still watch Netflix on the regular, don’t you?
Sure, competitors like Disney+, HBO Max, and Prime Video are gaining plenty of ground, but the streaming service that claimed dominance in the 2010s is far from vanquished. If its Q3 2022 report is any indication, Netflix will continue to be a juggernaut for years to come.
Want to join its ranks? Here’s your chance!
Netflix is looking for an administrative assistant who can help out one of its West Coast teams (either in Los Angeles or Los Gatos). Just like hundreds of other employers in need of administrative assistants, Netflix would like to work with a highly organized individual who can pull off an assortment of tasks with flexibility and gusto.
(In Netflix terms, perhaps someone who’s a cross between Five Hargreeves from The Umbrella Academy and Jane Hopper from Stranger Things? You get the drift.)
What responsibilities will I handle?
Here’s how Netflix sums up the role of an administrative assistant: “This is a demanding and fast-moving position that requires someone who is able to exercise good judgment and significant initiative.”
That last part surely brings to mind The Queen’s Gambit, and we’re inclined to think that the work of the administrative assistant will be akin to playing multiple rounds of chess in a day.
Here are some of the responsibilities an administrative assistant needs to shoulder:
- Working with two to four Netflix executives to ensure that they make all their meetings and that everything on their calendar is properly booked and implemented
- Effectively communicating with both internal and external partners (in particular, maintaining an air of professionalism in all correspondence)
- Facilitating passport renewals, visa applications, and travel arrangements (as in domestic and international flights)
- Planning and coordinating the logistics of teams and cross-functional offsites (which, if we’re being perfectly honest, is a leading cause of migraine)
- Optimizing expense reports (another major cause of migraine!)
- Getting newly hired employees on the same page as the rest of the team
What can we glean from these details? As far as the administrative assistant position goes, Netflix wants someone with strong interpersonal skills, not to mention an uncanny power to maintain order across the workspace (whether physical or digital).
