How do I choose my Virtual Assistant?

In the process of choosing a VA or Multi-VA practice you need to make sure they are the best fit for you or your company, capable of doing the work you want completed. Check them out by going to their websites and the websites of any organizations the VA belongs to. Make sure to ask many questions to become familiar and comfortable with your choice. Be ready to answer the following questions during the first interview with your Virtual Assistant candidates:

What does your company do?

Can you describe your business processes (office hours, preferred methods of communication, computer hardware and software you use, filing systems, contact management)?

What are your business goals for the next year? 

How do you process the information coming to you?

What are your strengths and weaknesses?

Do you have an assistant at this time?

What tasks would you like to assign to your Virtual Assistant?
