Hello,

My name is Mariange and I'm from france.
I discoverd DeskDemon some months ago but decided only recently to join the group.
I'm a temp, an executive assistant although I do know that the definition british or american people give to that word is not really the same than our's.
I'd like to improve my english which is not so good as it should be, specially with vocabulary. So if you can help whenever it's possible I would be very gratefull.
I speak spanish, italian, portiguese and polish also so if one day you need some clue, please ask me.
I hope this first post is not too full of mistakes.
I give you a link to a very interesting website in France for secretary and assistant : do not hesitate to visit it and leave a message, in english, it would be really a great idea as ti know each other better and exchnage e-mails between secretaries from all over the world.
This is not my site but the webmaster really had a brillant idea cretaing it, all for professional secretaries.

Hope to read you soon.

Regards

MariAnge

Again hello,

I was very surprised to see that my linkto an other web site for assitant, and most of all a french website  has been deleted, and it is a real deception to me.
But I suppose that if any of you have the curiosity to search on google for the name secretaire or assistante, they will find something.
In my opinion, Desk Demon was the place where assistants could exchange tips but also ask question and give to each other some clues on what is happening abroad ?
But it seems tha may be I'm too idealistic, and french also !!
So I'l keep on reading all the very good posts on this web site because it is important to me to know how others can feel, but I'm not really sure that I will myself post again.
I'll see in the future.

Anyway, have a god day or evening.

MariAnge

Welcome Mariange...  Your English is very good, so don't fear on that part.

As for the website info being removed, it is part of the Terms of Service of DeskDemon that any site is posted as either an ad or that is similiar to DD must have the permission of the DD staff before posting.  Once that permission has been given, then the link may be posted without worry.  This is just standard practice and is not against you in person or because of your nationality.  We are proud to have ALL folks posting here, as we are truly a world-wide community.

With that explained, I hope to see you posting often.  And another big "WELCOME" from Alabama.

Sorry, Countrigal, it's my fault. I should have read the Termes of Service more in depth !

Have a nice week-end

Bienvenidos, MariAnge!  It is very good to see you post here.  DeskDemon is a GREAT site.  It has helped to completely change my attitude towards my work, and helped me to realize the importance of my skills and my contribution to my company.  

You english seems really good so far, and it is great that you are looking for ways to practice and improve.  I am still working on learning spanish, myself.  I know more than I think, I'm sure, but I haven't really focused attention on it like I need to.

Please do not be offended that your link was deleted.  It is just a technical thing with the site not to post competitors websites without permission.  It is nothing personal.  I look forward to reading posts from you in the future.

Hello everyone
I too am new to this webste & in fact discovered it yesterday whilst doing a search on recruitment!
Looking for advice really please:
I am British, hailing originally from the Island of Jersey in the Channel Islands but have lived in the SW of France, 30 mins from La Rochelle for over 12 years now with my family.
I was previously a Legal Secretary in Jersey until I had a family & eventually started my own small business from home there as a Nanny/Au-Pair Agency as it worked well with young children & not having to employ  Nany myself.
However, what I am interested in is Networking and how and where I start please!

As I mentioned I live in SW France and can write French and read pretty well in French (I used to type contracts in French too in my previous life!) but my husband is now very ill and I am having to reconsider my career/income potential etc

Am I better working with a UK base and if so how to make contact, plus I am a beginner and would need some advice on how to get started.  Would I have time to practice and get back into the swing of it all?
Are people working part or dull-time networking and what sort of income could it bring in (roughly)
I am used to the internet/computer as I use this daily for our holiday bookings & am considered fast & efficient but would just need to brush up perhaps

Any help most welcome, thanks!
