It’s time for another question in my CBC (cross blog conversation) with Tricia of Time Saver VA. Last time Tricia answered my question of what her ‘perfect’ internship would be so it’s only fitting that her question for me this week has to do with interns. If you are just joining us, please check out our first conversation so you can follow along.
Tricia’s Question for Me:
If you had to hire an intern what qualities would you look for in an intern?
There are several different qualities I would look for in an intern. The main characteristics I would look for in a person applying for an internship with me (if I were to offer one) are:
- eager to learn
- certain amount of time (ex: 10 hours) to devote each week to the internship
- good communicator
- follows instructions
- a new VA just starting out or someone interested in starting a VA business
The last thing I would look for in a possible intern would be someone that I could potentially use as my backup VA and partner with them on future projects such as information products, audio recordings, teleseminars, etc. In other words, someone that I could work side by side with that would be an asset to me and my business.
Another great question from Tricia and I look forward to the next one she sends my way.
A question for Tricia:
What marketing tool(s) have you found to be the most beneficial to you in getting your name out there and obtaining new clients?
