Top Personal Assistant related questions
A personal assistant should at least be of legal working age. There are no minimum educational requirements so that you can hire someone with a high school diploma or TAFE. Someone with a degree or certificate in business administration or vocational course would be ideal. You can specify what skills and level of experience you’d like when looking for a Tasker. 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.
In a way, yes. While you don’t have to train personal assistants to do the tasks they’re expected to know and perform, you can better acquaint them with the people and structure of your organisation. It would help if you introduced them to people they must deal with to get work done, like personal assistants of partner suppliers. You can instruct them in the proper protocols when dealing with other people within and outside of your business.
Yes! Your assistant can handle this and send your clothes to the cleaners. They can do this and many other odd jobs, as long as they are reasonable. You can request your personal assistant to do this and other assignments. Remember that your assistant has to juggle your daily work schedule, fix your appointments, and sometimes take notes during your meetings.
In most cases, no. If your office needs cleaning, you can assign them the task unless they take the initiative and find someone to do the cleaning for you. While it’s true that personal assistants can do the occasional odd job if requested, cleaning or fixing anything themselves is beyond their expected skillset.
Remember that aside from handling your daily itinerary at work, a personal assistant takes calls and interacts with people - they should have excellent oral and written communication skills. Apart from these, a personal assistant should have good organisational skills, flexibility, diplomacy, integrity, and trustworthiness. There may be cases where you may become privy to confidential or sensitive information.

Your Tasker can make sure your meetings go smoothly. Upon request, they can take notes and record the meeting minutes, then provide you with a transcript afterwards. Should unexpected interruptions arise, your Tasker can handle them so your appointment can proceed as scheduled.
