Does your boss do a lot of international business?  Does your company do business all over the world?  Then you’ve probably dealt with the dilemma of trying to set up international conference calls, or arranging a business call with a client or colleague in another country or on another continent.  With all of the changes in Daylight Savings Time lately, figuring out time changes has just gotten harder.  Well, I’ve got a solution for you.

    Hi Jodith – Thanks for the link. Being a blogger who has readers in all parts of the world, the world clock would be a huge benefit.

    Hi Jodith,

    Thank you so much for your valuable tips! I recently got laid off and have never made travel arrangements for a boss. I am reading your site because most Administrative jobs require travel arrangements. I’m so happy I found your web site!

    Thank you again for this valuable information. I am sure you are helping so many of us!

    Hi, Lisa,

    I’m glad you found your way here! Yes, most direct admin positions will end up making at least some travel arrangements, and in some positions, it’s a very heavy requirement. My first direct admin position was for a boss who was really a globetrotter. I got my experience under fire, so now I try to pass it on.

    Welcome and I hope you continue to enjoy the site!

    Jodith, this web-site will be very helpful, thank you. I am anxious to log on. I have done 4 international trips for previous boss. I’m in throes of looking for a new position and was passed over as their CEO travels quite extensively and trips very contrived. They felt I did not have enough experience with the International travel portion. Are there any tricks that would be helpful in planning International travel? To simplify matters??
