About This Episode

In this Bonus Next Step, BELAY’s Director of Talent Madison Morgan shares some of the characteristics that sets a great VA apart from the crowd during the interview process. 

1. Confidence is the biggest thing that sets great Virtual Assistants apart.

Confidence is  the number one trait that’s gonna lead to a successful admin. Look to see if your candidate seems to have the confidence that is needed to dive into ambiguous situations, to lead up and to show up with a presence that says, ‘I got this and I got you.’

 

2. When you find a confident VA, you’re set.

If you find someone confident, even if they’ve never used your systems or tools, they’re gonna go learn. They’re gonna roll up their sleeves, and they’re gonna figure it out because they’ve got the confidence to do so. They believe in themselves that they can do this job well.
