When and why did you decide to become an Office Manager?
Around 3 years ago. After more than 10 years as a recruiter, in companies like Blizzard Entertainment and recruitment agencies, I decided to turn towards a more multi-tasking and conventional position, so the Office Manager role, seemed ideal to me. I am not disappointed with my decision.

To be resistant to stress, know how to manage priorities and how to say no. oh! And be pedagogist and diplomatic ;)

A word to finish?
One shouldn’t do this job for recognition otherwise, you’ll be disappointed. Office Manager is probably the one who receives it the least as not really visible. But it’s a great job and each day is different! There is no monotony.
