Step 1: Make a List of Your Wants & Needs

This section is all about you! What do you need the most help with? What tasks can you delegate? What tasks are priority? We usually find that making a list is helpful before conducting an interview.

Step 2: Decide How You Want to Engage a VEA

  • Through a Virtual Assistant company like Worxbee: In this case, the VEAs have been vetted through the company and have been presented to you based on your needs.
  • Contacting Independent Virtual Executive Assistants: Independent VEAs are out there.You will have to act as your own headhunter to find them and evaluate their skill sets.
  • Through a Marketplace: You also have the option to post on a marketplace and let VEAs bid their services to you.

Step 3: Interview & Hire!

When hiring any VEA you have to ask the right questions, depending on the way you engage the VEA. A few general questions would be “Tell me about your work style?”, “How would you help me improve (name your largest productivity challenge)?”, and “Tell me about a time you wowed a client.”
