To be accepted as an Executive Assistant, you will have to answer seven questions given to you on an application. Based on my gameplay experience, the answers don’t need to be right, as it won’t matter in the end.

As said before, you will need to go to Mars and help Trevor to initiate the Red Tape Blues questline. So, when the quest is started, you will have to answer several questions to be accepted for the job.

The quest isn’t over yet, as when you apply, go to Trevor and talk to him. Once you tell him that you have applied all the right answers to the Executive Assistant Questions in Starfield, the next phase of the Red Tape Blues questline will be triggered. Now, Trevor will ask you to hack Tia’s computer in Cydonia, which contains all the applications.

He is asking you to hack the computer to delete every single application except yours. If you do that, you will see that you were the best candidate for the position as you answered every question right, and regardless, you would have been chosen for the role.

  • The ideal time to hack Tia’s computer is around 5-6 PM in Starfield, as she won’t be near her computer.
  • If she’s still there, you can wait a little while as she will leave soon.
  • When you have successfully deleted all of the applications aside from yours, head back to Trevor and talk to him.

If you go with the answers that I have provided, you will be the best candidate for the job. However, even if you don’t get the answers right, it won’t affect the outcome. That is because you will end up deleting every other application.

That concludes my guide about the Starfield Executive Assistant Questions.
