Still, it never hurts to be discerning and polish the qualifications to find the best person for the job!
Here are some of the skills a good virtual assistant must possess:
More often than not, a virtual assistant would need to handle multiple clients. With this, communication skills is unsurprisingly the top skill a good virtual assistant must possess. Business owners would benefit from someone who is comfortable and excellent in emails, reports, presentations and phone calls.
The virtual assistant will act as the first point of contact when assigned to deal with correspondence and calls.
Aside from that, being able to write well is a bonus!
Whether the business requires the virtual assistant to be on top of travel preparations, find transportation, or book accommodations, project management sure plays a big part in the role! This also means being the organizer for events and conferences, managing files, and liaising with other external parties when needed.
A good virtual assistant can easily take on the role of a Project Manager.
Good communication skills won’t matter if the virtual assistant isn’t customer-oriented. Yes, this means seeing your client also as a customer you need to give 5-star service to! Giving a welcoming experience is fundamental especially for businesses that are heavy on direct communication with their own customers.
Who says a virtual assistant has to work on data entry jobs all the time? You will be surprised at how many good ideas can come from them! Good virtual assistants are creative too, and they may be of help when you are thinking of a new marketing campaign, a lead generation strategy, and more.

Last but not the least, a good virtual assistant loves learning. Sometimes, the actual skills from when he or she was employed aren’t complete, and there is a need to expand knowledge.
