The Chief of Staff is the supreme authority in the office but anyone on the team can be extremely helpful in multiple ways. You will ultimately be hired by a Chief of Staff or Staff Director, but be incredibly respectful with everyone you meet. Always cater to the Scheduler and the general needs of the staff. You go to them – they don’t come to you. You need their wisdom more than they need time with you.
