Vance Courtney is back for part two of our discussion on how to find, hire, and train virtual assistants. In part one, we dove deep into creating a VA job posting on Upwork and walked through the process of finding the right person. Vance gave so many tips and tricks and here, we go a step further and talk about what happens when candidates start applying for your job. We’ll show you what to look for and how to filter out top talent to make your search easier. It’s important to give detailed information about what the VA will be doing in terms of work, and it also helps to have them do a test task.
Vance shares his top five filters to use when hiring VAs on freelancer platforms like Upwork. Don’t forget that you can hire some great VAs outside of the US so make sure you’re searching worldwide. We discuss interviewing, what kind of interviews work best, and what questions to ask to make sure they’re a good fit for your business. Vance shares some of the best tasks to have your VAs handle for you and I share a demo task of something I like to have my own assistants do for me.
