25 Interview Questions to Ask a Prospective Virtual Assistant Before You Hire Her
Before I hire someone, I like to talk with them on the phone and run through my list of interview questions so I can feel them out.
Plus, by talking to a prospective virtual assistant (or other type of contractor), you’re going to be able to tell if there’s a ‘connection’ or not.

Where do you find an assistant?
If you don’t know where to find an assistant, get a copy of my own private contractors list.
It’s the list that hundreds of entrepreneurs have used to find + build their own dream team!
My list gives you:
- Access to My Private List of 100+ High-End Service Contractors
- Access to the Contractors I Personally Hire + Outsource My Business Tasks to
- Access to Contractors in a Wide Variety of Fields Including: Business Managers, Virtual Assistants, Copywriters, Editors, Ghostwriters, Book Experts, Website Design, Graphics, Event Services, PR, Tech & Development, and so much more!
“This List is a lifesaver! I was looking for a project manager to work with in my field, and had no luck finding a good fit on my own. I immediately found and hired a great fit directly from Melissa’s Service Contractor List. This list is now my go-to resource for finding and hiring high-quality people to help me grow my business.” – Amy Harrop
What is this List Exactly?
The fabulous service contractors list is a private online list of service providers that I initially created for myself, for my own personal use. It’s my new list that took me a year to create before I released it.
It is the exact same list that I refer to when I’m looking for an expert.
I did NOT just go to Google and throw this list together willy-nilly (because obviously I don’t hire or work with just anyone).
I personally and thoroughly review their website from top-to-bottom, and I spend time researching people on social media and other places online (if I can find them), to see what people are saying. And in some cases, I will reach out to them with questions to see how they respond & communicate.
I only add contractors to this list as a potential hire if they meet my initial criteria and high standards!
I do this because I don’t want to waste time later weeding them out when I’m looking for an expert. Once they’ve gotten the star, I feel confident in reaching out to them about projects & doing an interview.
If I’m not happy with someone for whatever reason, they’ll get cut from the list.
