  1. I noticed that there seem to be no EAs from Germany featured. Why?

    • Angela, thanks for writing, and for your question.

      I launched Real Careers late last month and am pleased to have been able to showcase people from seven countries to date, drawing upon people I know firsthand, as well as Twitter followers and others referred to me.

      Intent is to include administrators from as many countries as possible, and just this morning I connected on LinkedIn with a Berlin EA who is interested in being featured.

      If you’re interested, and/or would like to recommend someone, let’s connect on Twitter and then we can proceed from there via DM. Alternately, feel free to email me at

      Have a lovely weekend.
