(December 11, 2012)
After a good night of sleep and screening several other applicants, my virtual assistant presented me with the most highly suited applicant from our list which is Roman from Bangladesh.
He did pass the test especially since he wrote the needed translation at the beginning of the email. Also, he was fast to communicate when my virtual assistant who acted as a Hiring Manager for me went back to get in touch with him.
A high responsiveness is extremely important for a virtual assistant especially if the task is time sensitive.
Talking about time sensitivity, my VA normally updates me once a day. That’s what I have asked him. But since he knows this task is time-sensitive, he let me know about this candidate beforehand. He even organized it so that he would be ready for a Skype interview.
I’ll go ahead and say, “Thanks, dear virtual assistant, but I just jumped into the water. Let’s try out working with him.”
I’m really excited.
