Virtudesk Mock Interview TranscriptTyler: Hi Cherish, how's it going? Cherish: Hi Tyler, I'm doing good thanks for asking. How are you? Tyler: I'm doing good! So, obviously I'm a real estate broker and I am looking for a VA. I just wanted to ask you a couple of questions really quick. I'm going to start with, how long have you been a VA? Tell me a little bit about your background experience. Cherish: Okay I see. So yeah, I've been working with Virtudesk for over 3 years now as an ISA [Inside Sales Agent] and marketing assistant. I also used to work as a call center agent for 5 years with Barclaycard U.S. and U.K., where I actually handled credit card concerns for our clients. Tyler: Oh ok. So, what are your typical tasks that you do for your clients? Cherish: So, currently as a VA, some of my tasks aside from setting appointments are social media management, creating flyers, CRM management, email management, creating email campaigns, as well as lead generation. You name it, I can actually do it. Tyler: Ok, awesome. That sounds really good. So, can you tell me one of your strengths and one weakness that you have? Cherish: I can say that one of my strengths is that I don't give up easily. I never say no. I always look for options and that I can say that I'm a very positive person. And… Tyler: I can see that. Cherish: Haha, thank you. For my weakness, to be honest, I'm really afraid of making a mistake. You know. But you know, we're all human. If I ever commit a mistake, I always make sure to not do the same thing again. Also, learn from it. Tyler: Awesome! Okay, so being that you guys are in the Philippines, how do I make sure that my personal information, like my password and stuff like that, isn’t going to get stolen. Cherish: I understand. So, I actually used to work in the US banking industry for many years, where we handled sensitive account information. I know how important data privacy is. So, I can guarantee you that even though I'm in the Philippine, I can guarantee you that your information is safe. Also, here with Virtudesk, we make sure that all your personal data including passwords will not be shared to anyone other than you and your VA. We have a tracking system that we provide to our clients so you can monitor your VA’s activity in real time. Tyler: Okay cool. Well, thank you so much. That’s all the questions I have. I appreciate your time, and I hope you have a great rest of your day. Cherish: Thank you Tyler. Talk to you soon. Have a good day!

I’ll rate Virtudesk 5/5. My experience with Virtudesk was fantastic. I like your follow-ups and consistency is very refreshing and it makes me feel very confident in hiring Virtudesk.

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.
