Virtudesk Mock Interview TranscriptVlada Harrison: Hi Kevin! How are you? I’m Vlada, nice to meet you. Kavin: Hi Vlada. Thank you so much. It’s so nice meeting you as well! Vlada: I'm glad. I actually have a couple of questions for you I would like to ask. The first one would be, how long have you been a VA [virtual assistant], and can you tell me about your background experience. Kavin: Ok. Well, I’ve actually been a VA for 19 months now. Prior to that, I've been in the BPO [Business Process Outsourcing] industry for 8 years. This consists of but, is not limited to, telecommunications, credit cards, and logistics. Vlada: Perfect, thank you very much for answering that. I have another one. What kinds of tasks have you been working on, as an EVA [executive virtual assistant]? Kavin: Well, as an EVA, primarily my tasks are to check emails on a daily basis. This would consist of particular clients that we have in our database. I call out leads that come through our lead source. I try to book solid leads and appointments as well. Vlada: Wonderful. Let me ask you, is the time difference in the Philippines a possible problem? Kavin: For me, it's not. Throughout the whole day, I am open, and for me, it's basically on the moderations for the clients’ preferred time. Vlada: Great. How do you handle, for example, a particular situation where you are flooded with requests near the end of your shift? Kavin: Well, in these cases and scenarios, I do believe and understand that real estate never sleeps. There are instances where there's a lot of tasks that are impromptu or automatically requested. So, for this, I would go after the whole shift, even if it’s finished, and make sure that all my tasks are completed and submitted to my clients. Vlada: Well, thank you so much for answering all the questions. I really appreciate that and have a wonderful day. Kavin: You too, Vlada. Thank you so much for your time.

We hired a VA because we needed help on recruiting for agents and I am very satisfied with my Virtual Assistant. The experience with Virtudesk is really good and I am really really happy.
One of the reasons why we hire a Virtual Assistant is because a VA can’t walk out my door and take my business. Second, the cost value and the third is, we just had a super well qualified hardworking admin – I am very satisfied with my VA. We are also constantly getting follow-ups to ensure that we are very satisfied.
