Don’t forget to check their reviews and ratings to see if they have a good attitude too!
Apart from the minimum qualifications, a good personal assistant is organised, punctual and professional. As their job calls for dealing with various people, good personal assistants must also have a positive attitude and excellent social skills. When booking a personal assistant, check their reviews and ratings so you can be sure to hire someone who shares your work ethic and reflects your values.
