Btw, tools like InsideView, LinkedIn, and Data.com are helpful to find businesses and compare number of employees, revenue, etc. Published lists like the Inc. 500 and Fortune 500 are also useful. There are often local lists as well, you might find those in local business periodicals.

I'm not an administrative assistant, but I have worked with some. The best administrative assistants are very good at managing their co-workers' schedules, email, etc., and they can be paid very well (six figures) for it at large businesses and law firms. If that's a path you're interested in pursuing, I'd recommend thinking about computer tools for efficiency: compare calendar apps, email programs, processes like Getting Things Done (GTD) or Inbox Zero, etc. If you want to make good money as an administrative assistant, you should also develop expertise in a field that pays well (again, look for big businesses).
