A personal assistant continuously communicates with others, setting up appointments, meetings, and other business-related duties. To avoid any miscommunication, she must be able to speak clearly. When talking with challenging people or those who may be combative, she should maintain her calm.
A personal assistant must be well-organized and meticulous in their work. She’ll be in charge of your schedule, organizing appointments, accepting phone calls, jotting down messages, screening mail, and email, and performing other tasks that demand precision and care. She must be able to differentiate and manage high-priority items while putting low-priority things aside. She has to know how to use calendar and scheduling software.
