In this lesson, we will look at the qualities required to succeed in a virtual job role. To some extent, the qualities you need to do your job virtually are the same that you would need to do the same job in an office or on location. You will need to have the correct skills and qualifications for the role, as well as a genuine passion and enthusiasm for it. In addition to these, for a virtual role, you will also need to demonstrate that you are self-sufficient, responsible, organized and trustworthy enough to get the job done in a remote setting.
