What Are Common Skills Required as a Virtual Assistant?

Virtual assistants must be organized, be proficient in standard office computer programs, and have excellent communication skills. They must also be able to motivate themselves and work independently. Many often have experience as administrative assistants or jobs with similar responsibilities. Regular communication is vital in this role because virtual assistants are not in the office with their employer. As a virtual assistant, you must have the ability to multitask projects; depending on the company and industry, your employer may need you to coordinate several projects and events at the same time. You also need to keep track of your employer’s schedules and appointments and respond quickly to emails and other office messages.
