Magic matches business owners with a hand-picked remote assistant in 48 hours
Magic, a people-first remote hiring service changing the way consumers and business leaders can get help, announced the launch of Magic Dedicated Assistants to enable entrepreneurs and small business owners to hire without the hassle. Magic matches users with qualified and trained remote assistants with skills that are applicable to a variety of industries. Pre-screened and selected, Magic Assistants become a crucial component of existing teams without a contract or annual commitment for a set hourly rate.
Magic reviews hundreds of applicants using a proprietary, multi-step and in-depth screening process to hand-select a Dedicated Assistant to meet the needs of each individual within 48 hours of the user submitting a request. The process includes a comprehensive questionnaire and screening test, as well as multiple interviews, and finally a meet-and-greet call with the user to ensure each Dedicated Assistant is the perfect fit. In fact, only 23% of applicants make it through the rigorous screening and are selected to be Magic Assistants.
“We are thrilled to offer business leaders and executives a solution for hiring that helps them find high-quality help for their businesses when they need it most,” said Mike Chen, CEO, and co-founder of Magic. “As entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand what it’s like to build and grow a business, and know the transformative effect that an assistant can have on your business, accelerating your growth while simultaneously giving you more time and energy.”
Magic is a flexible, remote workforce made up of vetted workers with experience in administration, marketing, sales, and recruitment best practices. In fact, nearly all Dedicated Assistants have a college degree, with more than 20% coming from the top four universities nationwide and 29% coming from the top 20 universities nationwide based on Magic data from November 2020 to March 2021. Dedicated Assistants drive ROI, save capital and give users more time to focus on high-impact activities that will help them grow their businesses, with the ability to delegate tasks to a capable assistant.
