Hiring a part-time Virtual Assistant is no different to hiring a full-time Virtual Assistant. Virtual Assistants can cost as little as a few dollars per hour and can help you to manage your schedule, your correspondence and menial tasks that you just don’t have time for. When hiring, first make sure that a VA will indeed be cost-effective. From there, you can either approach an agency or place an ad online. Before you choose your assistant, try to organise a video conference so that you can talk over your requirements and get a better sense of whether they are right for you.
