What makes a great administrative assistant?
Strong digital skills
The utmost discretion
Communication is central to everything an administrative assistant does. From the emails they send to the phone calls they answer, great construction virtual assistants are skilled communicators, able to provide organized and clear information as it’s needed. In their day-to-day work, they’re able to keep all stakeholders in the loop while ensuring the right message is delivered to the right person.
They should feel comfortable talking on the phone or responding virtually to emails and direct messages as they come up. Communicating at this level takes a great deal of proactivity and organization, as previously mentioned.
A quick learner
Mindful of budgets
Aside from these skills and traits, we can also find great employees with industry-specific knowledge, even if it’s not required in their general work. Since construction work is so specific, this added level of experience can elevate the role even further and make a construction administrative assistant even more valuable to your organization.
At Virtual Construction Assistants, we can help hire these specialized workers like project managers, estimating assistants, project coordinators and more.
