Another important thing to remember when hiring a virtual assistant is to make sure that what you really need is clear and concise. The job description and specification should be written in detail so that the potential candidate would readily know if his skills would fit for the job as a virtual assistant. Keep in mind that once a candidate applied to you, an initial interview follows either by email or skype. During the interview ask about the following things:

• His past job experiences and their relation to your job requirements

• His strength and weaknesses

• His availability (time and number of hours per week )

• His proficiency in computer software, internet browsing, emailing skills and even his proficiency in English grammar and usage since writing would also be part of some virtual assistants.

There are also some risks involved when hiring a virtual assistant, but these risks can be avoided if his profile is checked through his website, if any, or ask someone you know to whom the virtual assistant have worked for before. Once the contract between you and the virtual assistant started, building trust to each other is essential. Since, both of the parties does not see each other, communication in a timely manner is also as equally as important. Prompt follow-throughs and clear instructions from you as the employer is also required. Enjoy the benefits of having a personal assistant and share each others’ success.
