Tips for Onboarding a New Virtual Assistant – Practical Advice

Recruiting is not an easy task, especially if you’re outsourcing. You have to create a job post, wade through the hundreds of applications, set up interviews, and ask for sample tasks.

When you’ve done all that and you’ve found that one person that’s right for your business, you’re ready to hire. 

In this video, I talk about tips that you can use in onboarding your new Filipino VA. These are: 

  • Tell them they’re hired.
  • Finalize the terms.
  • Daily reports.
  • The first task.
