EA Book Club: ‘The World’s Worst Assistant’ by Sona Movsesian
January 17 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Do you love books? Are you often looking for people to discuss professional development books with? Lots of EAs love to read, but it can be hard to find someone to discuss the book you’re reading — join us for an EA Professional Development book club! We meet monthly via zoom (3rd Tuesday of the month) and discuss our book pick of the month while sharing best practices and sometimes the authors join us! It’s also a great opportunity to meet new EAs, make new friends, and up-level your EA career.
About January’s book
From Conan O’Brien’s longtime assistant and cohost of his podcast, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, a completely hilarious and irreverent how-to guide for becoming a terrible, yet unfireable employee, spilling her trade secrets for minimizing effort while maximizing the rewards. Sona Movsesian didn’t wake up one day and decide to become the World’s Worst Assistant. Achieving such greatness is a gradual process–one that starts with long hours and hard work before it eventually descends into sneaking low-dosage edibles into your lunch and napping on your boss’s couch. With a foreword from Conan O’Brien, The World’s Worst Assistant is populated with hysterical black-and-white illustrations, comics, and more. It’s a mixture of how-tos (like How to Nap at Work and How to Watch TV at Your Desk), tips for becoming untouchable (like memorizing social security and credit card numbers and endearing yourself to friends and family), and incredible personal stories from Sona’s twelve years spent working for Conan that put their adorable closeness and professional dysfunction on display. In these pages, Sona will explain her descent from eager, hard-working, ambitious, detail-orientated assistant to self-awarded title-holder for the worst in history.
