Online personal assistants (PAs) do clerical duties for executives and management staff. Personal assistants often handle emails and phone calls, schedule meetings, and assist with administrative responsibilities. 

Here are the minimum requirements that you'd usually expect a personal assistant to have:

  • A high school diploma is required, while a bachelor's degree is preferable
  • Competent to deal with both internal and external communication
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Solid interpersonal skills
  • Personal assistant or similar administrative experience in document and spreadsheet generation using Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, or Google spreadsheets
  • Advance typing, note-taking, and recordkeeping skills

Suppose you're looking for an assistant who can handle social media, basic graphics, and more variety of tasks. In that case, you might be better looking to hire a virtual assistant instead of a personal assistant.

You should hire a PA to free up time and get back control of your time by delegating and outsourcing non-profitable and tedious tasks, such as email filtering, meeting scheduling, and trip preparation. Other tasks that your remote personal assistant could do are the following:

  • Make appointments, manage events, and send reminders
  • Senior management with secretarial and administrative duties
  • Edit reports, papers, and presentations.
  • Entry, database, and recordkeeping
  • Interact with internal divisions, take calls, and plan travels
  • Prepare facilities for scheduled events and refreshments as needed
  • Follow excellent business practices and etiquette

Hiring a remote personal assistant would cost you around $3.00-$12.00 per hour, depending on the applicant's credentials and work experience. Simply browsing through the VirtualStaff jobseeker profiles will give you an idea of the accurate and actual salary rates for PAs in the Philippines.

You can find the best remote personal assistants in the Philippines by following these simple steps:

  1. Define the position and then draft a job description for it. Your job advertisement should provide all the information a candidate needs to know before applying. 
  2. Post a job on VirtualStaff.ph to attract the best personal assistant applicants 
  3. Applications will begin arriving within the next 48 hours.
