Why It’s OK Not To Hire Your #1 Choice In A Virtual Assistant – Practical Advice

You’ve spent days and weeks searching. You’ve been inviting people for interviews, and sifting through countless applications and resumes.

You have your eyes set on that top applicant, but is that person going to be a great employee?

It’s totally understandable that when looking for someone to hire, you gravitate towards the one who has the best skills. You want to get the guy with the most outstanding resume. You want to hire the one who aced your sample task. But there’s more to it than that when hiring someone.

I made a short video about what matters more to me when I look for someone to hire. I’ve been outsourcing for more than 15 years, and I want to share some secrets that I swear works.
