Gauge Time Management and Project Planning Skills.

Before you make a decision, it’s important to gauge the time management and project planning skills of your potential virtual assistant candidate. Ask questions that focus on how they balance their work with other commitments, what their strategies are for tackling large projects, and whether they have experience working with virtual teams and remote collaborators. Understanding how a candidate approaches time management can tell you a lot about their overall fit for the role.
