Administrative support experience is great but not required. If you know how to organize your life, you might be good at helping me do the same. You do need to be able to type, somewhat internet savvy, and have an interest in business. If you’re unorganized or don’t like being told what to do, this is not the right job for you. Being organized and a good communicator is essential for this role as a virtual assistant.
