Classes, classes, classes, I feel like I’m up to my neck taking classes right now. I’ve taken a class on Facebook and Twitter. I’m now taking a class on webinars and soon a class in Infusionsoft. There are people out there that don’t have to take classes that they seem to just know things. I am not one of those people. 😥 But the good side is I know that I know I am not one of those people. It usually takes me three different ways to learn something. I hear it, I see it and then I have to do it.
Why The Practice?
The reason I take these classes and try to learn and keep up on the newest release of Facebook, Twitter and now Pinterest is coming out with a new layout is because of what I do. I’m a virtual assistant and it’s important in my job to know these things so I can help my clients know and understand the newest updates in social media and other areas of office admin chores. The education also helps me to facilitate these different programs for the client as well.
Here’s The Perfect
If you are looking at hiring a virtual assistant it’s important for you to ask them about their skill sets. What do they know, who have the worked for; don’t expect names but professions, what have they done what have they not done. These are questions that a VA should be comfortable answering and are probably use to answering. Ask if they have taken any classes, if they are certified in anything. This is not extremely important but it should be evident that they know and understand the different areas that you need your virtual assistant to know and classes and certification is one way of doing that.
