Personal Secretary (PS) Guide
What is a PS?
A Personal Secretary (PS) is someone who has the honour of doing jobs for their boss. Jobs include, but are not limited to: interviews, SU work, promotions, and trainings.(At no time is your PS to do your work without you participating and/or assisting in completing said task.)
How can I become a Personal Secretary?
Some members will provide application forms via Slack. Other members will come to you. Just keep working hard and doing your best around HQ. Someone will notice you.
Can I be a PS for more than one person?
Unfortunately, you aren't allowed to work for more than one person. If at anytime you wish to retire from your current boss, please advise him or her, along with leaving any badges that would connect you to being a PS.
Do I have to put my bosses tag / name in my motto?
Yes, because you will be representing your boss, your boss will inform you of what to include in motto.
Do PS’s acquire a special badge to wear?
Certain members of staff may give you an office or PS badge to keep on your profile. It is the choice of your boss whether or not he or she would like to provide you with a badge. Please note that badges are not to be worn in HQ. Only badges made by Foundation members or the Chief of Directorates can be worn in the HQ.
How will I know if someone has a PS?
Apart from the display on each of the mottos of the boss and PS, Personal Secretaries can be found on portal.
The boss must firstly open up their Profile Settings through clicking the head icon in the top right corner.
They must then input the name of their PS into the space titled Personal Assistant.
After the settings are saved, anyone can view the information written under Resources > Personal Assistant List.
Do I get paid if I’m someone’s PS?
Your boss may choose to pay you with credits, HC, or other things on Habbo. However, they are not required to pay you at all.
How do I promote on behalf of my boss?
As long as you and your boss are both in the same HIA base and both have 30 minutes online time, you may promote someone on their behalf You will conduct normal promotion procedure, and give the user their new motto with your boss’s tag. Then log the promotion with a comment “Promoted on behalf of _______”
Someone I promoted on behalf of my boss cannot get through Security because they have the wrong tag. What do I do?
If the user is Agent-Trainer and is in your promotion limit, you are encouraged to promote them yourself rather than on behalf of your boss to make things easier for Security workers. Generally promotions given on behalf of your boss are to be beyond your normal promotion limit. However, if you are in the High Rank division promoting a Trainer on behalf of your boss, you may ask your boss to log this promotion rather than you logging “Promoted on behalf of ____.” This is solely to avoid issues with Security Search.
What steps do I take if my boss leaves HIA?
You will need to remove "(boss name)’s PS" from your motto and cannot promote on their behalf or conduct any of their work anymore. Be sure to leave any badges that display you’re a Personal Secretary of a member who no longer works for HIA.
