    you can easily find these information about what a PA does over the net.
    the most important thing is to have a teachable heart and an open mind.
    it's ok if you don't know the basics, not everyone starts with knowing everything.

    This here pro's perspective of the 10 most important attributes of a PA while doing location work.

    Knows all the good cafes in the area (for food and coffee)

    Is PUNCTUAL - God help you if you're late

    Thinks ahead and sets up accordingly, eg: no power leads across the path of the models in an outdoor fashion shoot.

    Doesn't talk $hit ie: banalaties / mindless small talk like a blithering idiot non stop.

    Has a good sense of dress and dresses appropriately for the job. ie: No flip flops/sandals, baggy camo shorts or t-shirt to a black tie affair - Only the pro is allowed that right

    Can coordinate the other crew (makeup, hair, dressers, etc) as required

    Can lug vast amounts of gear

    Doesn't mind working all the hours of day and night, eg: arriving on location at 2.30am to prepare for a dawn shoot.

    Has a clean driving license and can drive any vehicle up to 5 tons GMV.

    Can put up with the photographers difficult behaviour.

    I'm ready to learn.

    My PA's been with me for nearly 11 years now. She's brilliant and is very happy in her job, after all she gets free travel and gets to shoot on many jobs as well. Being a PA suits her better than trying to cut it as a pro in her own right (her own words).
